The somewhat tired statement of "Time flies fast" is one that I am reminded of over and over again in on levels that are deeper and truer always.
This past weekend we celebrated my son Christian's 8th Birthday with time as a family and a little party and Dave and Busters. As I reflected on his life, and my own role as a Father over these past years I recognize how much I continue to learn as well as how much I still need to learn. I again see life as such a gift, and am filled with gratitude to our Heavenly Father for entrusting Christian to me...
Despite my tendencies which are far from perfect, and my lack of resources God has trusted me to prepare this young boy for his one day vocation. I do not have all the answers, but I just wish to raise an intelligent, motivated and strong willed boy who has a heart of compassion for mankind and a love of God. Heavenly Father, I pray that only I will learn to be more and more the image of you in his life, and I pray my sins, faults, and daily failures never lead him astray. Father I am young I know, and by societal standards I would not be seen fit to raise this boy.... I know many even in the church see me as a scandal in this matter.... And I know there is a legal system which deems me criminal by default because of my ethnicity and social class in this matter. Still Father I know that all of this is a gift from you, and I pray I say yes to the grace you give me to care for this gift well. Thank you.
In Jesus name... #TheJoysOfFatherhood. Amen
