2017. inside is a heartfelt prayer. Bubbling to the surface, this prayer explodes with joy, praise, and also petition.

O Lord, our hearts lift in praise to you for life! Our own lives. The lives of our children. And our children’s children. We long to praise you for all our days. And, may it be so for each generation of our family. To walk in your ways. To live our lives immersed in you. 

From generation to generation. Let each generation tell its children what glorious things he does. Psalm 145:4

Generation to generation. The birth of Sonja Joan. The daughter of Anna. The daughter of Brian and Diane. Sonja Joan. The daughter of Dan. The son of Dennis and Joan. From generation to generation. O Lord, how great are your works! The gift of life. The gift of joy. May we, and each generation, walk in your ways. Delighting in you for all of our days.
