Happy Fathers Day (Part 2)

My second Fathers Day post, I wanted to focus specifically on my husband.  I have to say when I married Sam 10 years ago I dreamed about what it would be like to make him a dad and how it would be to be parents.  I never dreamed how great of a daddy he would be to our children! of us are, but exactly what they need....yes!  I was reminded this week of a thought:  "God gave you the kids you have as a gift to raise them in the Lord, no one on earth is best suited for this job, because no one else loves them like you do!"  How true that is! (by the way, that is not a direct quote, hence why I didn't give credit)

I love the way he jumps in and does anything to get involved with them.  He is not selfish or thinks that "dads don't do that."  I love that he tucks them in at night and prays with them and reminds them of the good things God has done and is doing in our lives.  I love that he cuddles with them and tells them that he loves them.  I love that when he comes home from being away for a bit they all run to the door to greet him.  I love that he is ever growing and changing to become more like Christ and leading our children and family.
