    Prayers and encouragement for my son

    Not a sad announcement thank God.
    One of my sons just graduated from Texas A&M Galveston Maritime academy.
    He actually went to college to learn a skill to make a good living!
    Now he is sitting for his Coast Guard licensing exam for 3rd mate. Very difficult test that is 4 days long covering everything he has learned in past 4 years.
    Please keep his success in your prayers.
    He is a kid with a plan, wants to be a harbor pilot someday, and he is working hard to make that dream come true.
    I am a proud father.

    Sounds like Daddy did a good job, too. Congrats and good luck to your son.

    Prayers for his future. Nice to hear of a responsible young man with a bright future. Be sure to remind him that when all is said and done, it isn't how many times you get knocked down, but how many times you get up.

    Congratulations to your son and all those who offered him support and encouragement along the way. Now, may the Lord give him confidence, clarity of mind to recall what he knows at the appropriate time. May He give him the assurance that He is with him and will guide him along the way, in both rough seas and calm.

    Good job, dad. May God continue to bless you and watch over your family.
