A Blessing

Samuel Carter
Leading a discussion on his recent paintings

     It is a beautiful thing when a son blesses his father. 
And I am blessed indeed. 

As my son Samuel becomes a man he continues to bless me with his insight and generosity. Not a day passes without him telling me about a song he has heard (and then play it for me) or sharing something he has read.  Recently he decided to sponsor a child in a foreign country, even though he is currently unemployed. Before I could ask how he would provide the support he said, "I plan to sell my plasma until I get a job."

     Last week I was privileged to hear Samuel speak before a group of artists. At one point, as Samuel answered a question from the floor, my friend Susan looked at me wide-eyed and said, "He sounded just like you when he said that!"

Yes, I am blessed.

Here are a few of Samuel's paintings.
May they bless you.

I praise God for sharing you with me, Samuel.
You are a blessing.

May the Lord continue to sanctify your imagination
and bless the work of your hands.
