🏅🎉❤️happiest of birthdays to my beloved dad who for his 54th birthday wanted a pair of hiking boots from @ ⛰
not only does this attest to his undaunted adventurous spirit but also to his desire to never stop exploring all the beauty and diversity this world has to offer. 🌍👣
but, ultimately dad has always been the one to remind me of a different pilgrimage, one far better than this world has to offer. he, like the pioneers of faith who has gone before him, is homesick for his heavenly country and having received this promise he continues with perseverance the race marked out for him. “do you see what this means-all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? it means we’d better get on with it. strip down, start running - and never quit! 🏃🏻♂...keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in.” [heb 12:1-3]
pappa, so opgewonde vir al die wonderlike staproetes en avonture wat op ons wag! ek is so bevoorreg om jou dogter te kan wees 😘🤩 lief vir pappa!
