“I haven’t fully processed it all yet. I’m grateful but it’s really something beyond my understanding. I just wanted to be the father I never had and give my kids experiences. God is beyond kind. Once I have more words I’ll share but for now… Thank you God for being gracious. Thank you Jesus for allowing me to be a part of your kingdom and using broken instruments to play healing music.
There are sooooo many people to thank…my list is coming soon.”
