It’s past midnight. Feeling a bit tired right now. Not feeling particularly encouraged as of late. Yet, tomorrow, I will become a godparent (for the first time) to my cousin JC’s baby boy. And in two months time, I will be officiating (for the first time) my cousin CC’s wedding. These things puzzle me but also make me pause in thanksgiving, that God could be so present in my family in ways that I didn’t think he would be. And that I get to be a part of it.
