The year was 2003 and I was visiting my son (then a teenager). He had his first job but it was part time, and he didn’t make a lot of money. I saw these little snowmen on a sled (about 3 inches high) in this cool store in Detroit Lakes, MN.
I remember I exclaimed how cute they were, and that was a hard year for us as I had left his dad, he was alone without his mom….
He did this remarkable thing I have never forgotten…..
A package came…..(from him) at christmas..in it was the (gasp) snowmen and the little tobaggen. I have them (to this day) I can’t look at them without remember the love that shined out of Thomas ….(during a very dark time in his life)….
Now he’s a man…a minister, a leader..has a wife (and child) owns his own house. He’s a prayer warrior…more of a friend now than ‘a son” but he’ll always be my son even though he is primarily God’s son. And i have to think….If I being a mere human never forgot that extraordinary act of love….
How could we ever think God does not notice what his children do, for him?
Oh how his heart must smile, just thinking about us…..and the things we’ve done just to honor him……._Laura Grace
