How did this little boy…
… become this hard-working man
… and this daddy of three?
At birth I held each son and wondered…
….. what will you look like?
….. what kind of man will you be?
….. what will you do in this world?
And I just trusted God.
Four brothers = lots of trusting.
I didn’t care what they did for a living… just that they loved it and did it well.
I didn’t care about the hair styles, the music of the day or who “started it first”… I simply cared, that at the end of the day, they would love each other and God.
And today… a milestone birthday for this youngest son of mine… I can’t think about any of them without the words – honor, integrity, love – floating to the surface.
And it’s all the more a mystery because I know the mistakes I made.
I mean, how could I do so many things so wrong and they still turn out so right?
God… the only one who could orchestrate this mystery miracle so perfectly.

What a reminder to trust God with our children. He is much more capable of Fathering them than I am able to parent on my own.
Thanks, Cristal. I can’t count the times I prayed just that – – “I know you love them more than I am capable, Lord, so I’m sure you have a plan” 🙂
When you leave it in God’s hands, you will always be able to say “Job well done”
