I am thankful for the time that I get to share with Lydia that many fathers aren't blessed to enjoy. I feel as if I am more connected to her than I might be of I never had the opportunity to care for her on my own on the days Lisa has to work her 12 hour shifts. I think that this has allowed me a better understanding of what Lisa does for our daughter while I am at work and, hopefully, it makes me more appreciative of those efforts.
There is great truth in Psalm 127:3-5.
My prayer and praise for today:
Thank you Lord for blessing me with an absolutely wonderful wife and an amazing little daughter. I pray that I might be a living example to them of Your mercy, grace, provision, shelter and love. Thank you for granting me forgiveness for the many times I have failed to live up to the standards that You have called me to as a man, husband and father. Thank you for loving me and blessing me with these precious gifts. I pray that I would recognize them as such and that I would continually lift them both up to you in prayer. Thank you for what you are doing in my family, my church and my heart. Your Love endures forever!
