There is nothing that can totally prepare you for having kids. There is also nothing that can compare with it.
A pair of tiny arms wrapped around your neck can melt away the stress of the day.
Having children makes things come out of your mouth that you never could have fathomed saying.
A look at my heavenly Father shows me just how far short I fall as an earthly father to my children.
Another look at my heavenly Father reminds me of the forgiveness I have through his Son.
That look also reminds me of how desperately my children need that same gospel.
Doing fun stuff with your kids is more fun for you than for the kids. I'm taking the Zach attack to a Fort Wayne Tincaps game tomorrow night (E is doing something with the other 3), and I can't wait.
It's a good thing these boys have their mother
If I had a girl, I think I might be the biggest pushover on the planet.
I know more about the sin remaining in my heart since having children. Wow.
When my kids have problems, I hurt. Whether sickness, a rough time at school, being mistreated, or just a bad scrape. So what happens as they grow older? Friends tell me "Little kids, little problems. Big kids, big problems." Ugh. Not looking forward to the bigger problems.
I see a lot of me in my children, and it's not all pretty.
