Today is my father’s 99th birthday! We will be celebrating his 100th year all year with memories of all God did in those 100 years. It is an amazing story of God’s faithfulness and grace.
It is such a blessing to be his daughter. I am reminded so often by those that come up to speak with me. This morning I went to the grocery store and many came to tell me how much they loved him. Usually it is followed by how they came to a personal relationship with Christ through his ministry – whether in person in a vast arena, or on television, or in a movie, or by way of radio – so many lives touched and changed by the Gospel.
Yes, it is a blessing. And I feel loved by virtue of their love for him.
Like being in Ireland last month – everyone I met had a Billy Graham story. They remembered the historic meetings in London and Belfast. Their grandparents or parents took them or made them listen on the “telly”. I felt like I was wrapped in a warm blanket of love.
What a precious legacy I have!
Just wait till we all get to heaven. What a day that will be!
We’ll all be wrapped in God our Father’s great love.
