An Offering for the Lord
"Be careful not to forget the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery." Deuteronomy 6:12
On April 30th, my parents and I got to do something very special that we've been planning for some time. We went to the old family farm in Dickson, TN (where my great-grandparents lived). Together we bought, planted, and dedicated two pecan trees as an offering to the Lord. God has given me such a rich history of faith through many generations (on both sides of the family) and He has blessed me with a legacy of faith and a future as part of His story of love. As Isaiah 61 says He turned my ashes into beauty and is making me a tree of righteousness, a planting for the display of His splendor and glory.
I am so grateful for the chance to plant these trees in memory of all He has done in my life through the lives of my family. May we continue to leave a legacy of faith for the generations to come and may we serve Him well for all time.
Thank You, Lord for loving us all so well! We don't deserve Your kindness but You give it to us freely and abundantly! May it bring You much glory, My King!
