My granddaughter, Taylor just graduated from Fredericton High School, the oldest High School in Canada and she did it in style despite the pandemic and the academic rigor.
Today I prayed at the graduation ceremony of my alma mater. It’s been 48 years ago since I graduated from Grand Manan High School.
To be honest, I am feeling old. Back then I thought I knew it all.
I had peaked. I was current, relevant, cool and out to change everything and anything that I could.
I was a baby.
Today I realize that I know next to nothing and there is never enough time to know much more.
I love the life I have known, the people who have shared it with me … especially family. The less enamored I have become with myself the greater the sense of awe I experience.
John the Baptist said of Christ, “He must increase, I must decrease.”
It seems to me that the more significant place that Christ occupies in my heart, the more beautiful place the world becomes.
My prayers go to my granddaughter and her cadre. I hope that she finds a bigger, better, more beautiful world and that her imagination goes ape in an Ephesians 3:20 way.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
