Paul Hugh Peregrine Till was born this day fifteen years ago. He has always been amazing.
But today we are especially proud of the young man who struggled so hard to enter this new culture, who succeeded, and now is helping a demanding little brother find his way in Till culture.
A few of Paul Hugh's greatest hits...
Prayer time, August 22nd, 1999 (Paul Hugh was three): "Help no lions to come and no sharks and no swordfish and no bloody fish and no trees with mouths and black knights are evil, and gold knights are good... Amen."
In the car, January 2nd, 2003 (Paul Hugh was almost seven):
"I hate the word 'may.' I always say, 'CAN I please?"
"Because I hate words that start with the letter M."
"Because they remind me of people running around naked."
"Why is that?"
"Because 'naked' starts with N and M sounds so much like N."
Much of Paul Hugh Peregrine's name is hidden in the older translations of Psalm 84: 5.
"Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage."
"Hugh" comes from an ancient word for heart or soul, and "Peregrine" means pilgrim.
Please pray with us for Paul Hugh's pilgrimage, that he would truly go "from strength to strength" until he "appears before God in Zion."
