As my hubby and I pondered this verse, we agreed. A warrior most likely is not going to keep his arrows in his quiver for safe keeping. No, he is going to shoot them out into battle. So, as the days pass this summer I am soaking up every moment – trying to memorize his face – and my hubby and I are cramming in those last moments of instruction as we prepare to shoot our first arrow out into the world. May he be a light for You Lord.
You can see the arrow got a little extra decoration in the form of a piece of card stock printed with his destination attached with gold thumbtacks.
This portion of our hallway (dark skinny hallway – impossible to photograph) has been lined with pics of all the kiddos at their 1st birthday (the pic on the left of course) for years. Entering into this new phase – this will be the new tradition: senior pic next to 1 year pic, with arrow of destination above. I love being able to celebrate with my children and I am excited to watch their lives unfold in the hands of The Lord.
I like your idea of the arrow above the pictures. Enjoy the summer with your boy 🙂
