Five years ago tonight, I looked out the window in one of the skywalks at (then-named) Sioux Valley Hospital and saw a rainbow across the sky.
I stood there and thought about the fact that I was a father. About an hour before, the doctor delivered our beautiful twins and I had the honor of holding those two beautiful children and being amazed at the blessing that God had brought into our lives. The doctors had taken them to the NICU as they were nearly six weeks premature and we would be able to see them again in about 30 minutes. So, while my wife rested, I stood there and saw this beautiful reminder of the promise that God will always be with us. I was reminded of the many ways that I have received God’s blessings and simply could say nothing more than “thank you.”
Happy fifth birthday, my little ones.
