Childhood Home

We have two of Steve's brothers staying with us. So they took Steve, oxygen, walker and all to visit family. One of the stops will be his parents who live on the Rock River. He'll get to sit by the river where he has fished and boated since his youth. He'll see the yard where he pitched a tent and played ball with his brothers. The garage where he borrowed dad's tools to fix his car and maybe did minor body work for the first time.

I wonder if he thinks, as I do, that it might be his last visit to his childhood home.

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
