The fact that there are people in our society who take offense to the Tebow family story being a part of the Super Bowl made me think. Who or what would constitute the flip side to the Tim Tebow story?
Dear Potential Parental Unit:
Hey, I know you’re cringing at the thought of ever getting a letter or anything else from me. Thanks for having the courage to read it. I know you’re feeling guilty, but this won’t be that type of letter, trust us. I know you’ll always feel conflicted about me and as you’ll learn, that’s not bad. I’m limited in what I can share, but I can tell you that if you’re not conflicted at least part of the time in your world, you’re not doing it right.
Let me get straight to my point. Turns out I have a soul and that soul remained untouched by sin. In a very real way, you were responsible for my existence and guaranteed where I got to spend eternity. The price for that need not be our eternal separation. That’s the one thing I most want to tell you. The Enemy wants to keep that thought out of your head. To quote the chatty Polish dude among us lately, “don’t be afraid.” Nothing about eternity is ordained as long as you can take a breath in your world.
This place is indescribable, so I won’t try. But here is where tragedies come to morph into something else, something good. Which is why even our separation can have a blessed ending. You won’t truly know this until it’s too late to do something about it. But like the kid from Dublin sings, this is a “place that has to be believed to be seen.” The smart move [Tessio notwithstanding] is believing.
While I am not aware of the existence of any such letter, I pray as to the the accuracy of its content.
