Father's Day 2011

I had a whole Father's Day post planned until this unexpectedly happened last night...

Chad said it was the only Father's Day present he needed and he was right.  This moment was captured of my middle son as he sat at the kitchen table playing computer games, he had no idea I was filming him at the time.  

Our children have been joining us in "big church" lately and you wonder from time to time between the whispering, drawing, writing, and general lack of paying attention just how much are they hearing and soaking in.  We sang this song this morning in worship.  They're getting it even when we think they may not be paying attention, it's sinking in.  

As sweet as this music was to our ears, it can't even compare to how precious it was to his Heavenly Father. We are so inadequate to be raising these boys, it's a terrifyingly fantastic journey.

Happy Father's Day to the man who leads our family by example, shows our boys how a godly husband and father conducts themselves, and has taken on more than he ever thought he could with this girl of ours. Thanks for coming home to this zoo everyday.

1 Timothy 6:11 "But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness."
