22 I will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them. 23 He will bring honor to his family name, for I will drive him firmly in place like a nail in the wall."
My sister posted this passage on my FB wall a day or so before court happened. The day before she posted, Choo Choo saw a key in a windowsill. A key that has pretty much been there since the day we moved in (extra copy) 2 years ago. He never noticed it or asked for it until that day. He carried it around and NO ONE could even touch HIS key. I was praying it was significant to the results of court. As we all know, it wasn't that day. My father's name is also David :)
He loves this key and walks around with it in his pocket most days. I plan to get a special key chain for it and send it with him on his final day. Aunt/Uncle will just think it's a toy key, but we will know better. It will represent that he is a member of this family (members of families have keys) and our door will always be able to be opened by him! Papers will say he belongs to another family and so does blood, but in all our hearts he belongs to this house.
