Happy Birthday to Pop-Pop!

 Me and papa in Maggie Valley, North Carolina.

Papa and I in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. 1987

Today is my daddy’s birthday. I am posting one of my favorite pictures of the two of us. It is one of my earliest memories. I was about four years old. We were at the old Ghost town in Maggie Valley, when I begged Papa to let me ride the gondola with him. I remember him asking me something like – are you sure you won’t be scared?! I wasn’t scared. I was excited. I remember feeling safe even though I was so high above the sky! I was flying with my Papa! I was overjoyed as I pointed to all the trees. It almost felt like I could reach out and touch the “giant Christmas trees”! Although I have not done so since my last trip to Switzerland in 2006, riding the gondola is still one of my favorite things to do. Perhaps, it is because every time I ride one, it brings me back to that moment of safety and childish happiness! This is exactly how a father should make his child feel, don’t you think?! 🙂

As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.
Psalms 103:13
