I had a spiritual Kodak moment with Fulton the other day. Fulton loves hats, especially baseball hats! He also loves the University of Alabama’s football team and the New England Patriots.
There’s a store in our mall, called Lids. They sell lots and lots of hats. Fulton has been on me to take him there to buy new hats. Lately, when he has seen me, he points to his head. He wants hats! So, the other day, I took him to the mall to buy some hats. As we approached the store, I said to Fulton, “Look son, there’s Lids.” He immediately removed the old hat he was wearing and pointed to his head. I have never seen him do that before. It was like, off with the old, on with the new.
It got me thinking, just a few yards from Lids…what it would be like when we see Christ for the first time. Off with the old, on with the new.
Fulton had the time of his life. He got some new hats. Think of the good time we’ll have when we see Jesus! Surely, they’ll be great hats (crowns) in heaven!!
