I hope this post finds you having (or having had, tomorrow) a wonderful Father's Day. As our pastor reminded us at church this morning during baby dedication, fathers as the heads of
their houses protect, nurture, instruct and minister to their wives and children. It is such an important responsibility for fallible men, so thank you to Adam, Barney and my dad, Charles for being such great dads.
There is so much to reflect on in terms of fatherhood biblically - our holy Father and our adoption into his family; the redemption that we have only in Christ through the love of the Father; what a godly father, home and family should look like, the fact that we should teach the gospel when we sit in our house, and when we walk by the way and when we lie down and when we rise (Dt. 6:7). Amen.
Yesterday, Charlotte went to her church friend Vivian's 2nd birthday party. It was great fun even though it was HOT, and here is our picture journey of the party:
And then, she was done with planting, Adam took his flower, and we were about done....
And then, it was time to go home for a bath. Ahh...summer. :) Soli Deo Gloria; have a great week!
