Sons of thunder with a servants heart, that was my goal..and you're both doing just fine. We've had some rough water but you two have been an absolute joy to raise. You're all boy..both of you.
When i think of everything that i've learned being your Dad it really humbles me. i knew absolutely nothing about being a father, i was scared to death. It was only because of Gods grace creating a deeper desire to know Him more personally that i began to understand what it really meant. It means keeping your promises, making sure that the ones that you care for know, way down deep where they live, that you love them.
Being your father has been a huge responsibility as you guys well know. It doesn't make us the "President of the house"..er..well sort of..lol, but it places much of the responsibility for the ultimate outcome on how we as men handle all the stress and problems that come knocking on the doors of our homes, the same problems that every family experiences really; but lately there's been much more to fight off.
Our culture is veering out of control..your generation just may be the one that can turn things around, i hope so..because if we keep moving in the direction that we're currently headed, mark my words, freedom will be impeded and eventually disbanded altogether for the sake of security.
The family is the center of civilized society, if we get that wrong there's no telling what could happen.
