It’s graduation day for this stud. He has spent a lot of time working toward his Bachelors degree. Many nights he spent up late finishing papers all while still loving our family and our church. Today we were suppose to cheer as he walked across the stage to receive his diploma in Georgia. While we don’t get to cheer him across the stage today we will continue cheering him on through life. Jessie is a reminder to all of us that hard work pays off. It doesn’t matter how much time it takes you to finish. Finish strong. There’s no limit to what he can achieve because Jesus has great plans still to come for him. Today we will celebrate at home. We will celebrate because that’s what you continue to do when life throws you curve balls. Even though we are disappointed that the experience of walking the stage is not happening we still get to celebrate because Jessie still did it. He graduated and that’s huge. Many people are missing out on many things right now. It’s true and it is sad! I’m so thankful that we serve a God who ALWAYS works all things out for the good of those who love Him. (Romans 8:28) Right now, in this moment God is working. We might not see it now but we will. It might not be in our time but it’s in the right time! Trust Him!
Happy graduation day Jessie. I know it didn’t turn out like we planned BUT you did it! You worked hard! You graduated and we are so proud of you!
