Thoughts on Fatherhood So Far

My son, it says, be wise and incline your ear to wisdom. Why doesn't 11 month old Angelo get this! Maybe I'm not putting out any wisdom for his ear to incline to? Maybe he's in outright rebellion against myself and his mother? Maybe he is deaf?Oh wait, no it's probably because he is 11 MONTHS OLD!Just thinking about these things makes me feel nice. Sure son, let's put maple syrup on that waffle that you have to eat with your tiny, sticky hands. You can incline that ear later, once mommy has given you a bath.

Notes from a sermon

For the next two years, we are in for some hard core campaigning from both side of the aisle. During this time, its important to remember that we should not be looking to our politicians to protect our nation, our families, and our wealth. That type of security is only available in the arms of an all powerful, all knowing, all loving God.

We should take comfort in his sovereignty in this tine of tribulation. He will protect his flock from the scorching wind.

The Obama presidency is enough to make a grown man cry. We weep, not for our present, but for our childrens future. My God says he will wipe away those tears. We know the score and we know who has won. In the midst of this tribulation, we have comfort.Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.7

A Call for Prayer

Before asking for your help, let me explain my relationship with the people that I am requesting prayer for.

I have known David Spears practically my entire life.  We used to play Army when we were kids.  I spent the time working on my German accent, but David would devise elaborate tactical battle plans for both us and our army men.  David has always had a military mind.  He put that mind to good use in battle for our country in Iraq.  He's used it effectively since then as well.  His strategic thinking has helped him support a wife, twin boys, and a home buying experience, all while working and going to school.

David is an excellent Godly example of a righteous man.  When my son is old enough, I will point to David as an example and my son will benefit from David's integrity.

Michael Lortz and I also used to play Army men.  Michael would always count his at the end to make sure I hadn't stolen any.  Wrestling matches would usually ensue.  But enough about last weekend.
