Rite of Passage

Today we went to some friends house for a celebration. They were celebrating their youngest son’s passage form childhood into manhood. He was 12 years old. The ceremony was similar to that fo a Jewish ceremony in that it celebrated the same thing. It is also an African tradition. Since the couple was African American, that made sense too.

Too ofren we don’t realize when seasons change. We move into the next season without realizing it and wind up missing out and not understanding what is going on. Jeremiah was celebrated today. It was all about Him and him learnoing how to follow his heart. It was about him learning to lead and to hear. If words make worlds, and they certainly do, then it was about speaking forth his destiny as we seek to see what is going on.

I love to see strong families. Families are what God uses to help bring His kingdom here on earth. I am amazed to see how they function, and most of all to see how they nuture and protect each other. Papa loves families, but even more, He loves to see how families react to the Kingdom of God when they see it. So, it was a good day, but I am very tired, so I think I’ll call it a night. Hopefully I will have something better tomorrow.
