Three years and five months ago we welcomed a beautiful little boy into this world. I finally met him, but you knew him for at least 4 years and 2 months, effectively giving you two a 9 month lead on daddy.
And 8 months ago we welcomed in a beautiful sign of God’s grace and mercy into our life with our baby girl. You’ve known her 1 year and 5 months, again a 9 month lead.
You know our children, you love, in abundance, our children. You carry on for them when I would break from the strain and you do it time and again. You help me to keep them in and aware of the word of God and you intercede, respectfully, on behalf of our children when they need it.
You love our God, and your role as a steward to our children so much that you have gladly abandoned what the world demands of a you. Refusing to allow any inappropriate secondary influences take precedence in our children’s lives. You inspire me to be a better father, as you inspire me to be a better husband, which inspires me to be a better man and Christian.
You care for me with a love and a heart that is greater than you even have for our children, and for that I give glory to God. Our children don’t know it now, but one day they will realize how amazing their Mother is, and see her Father reflected in her. In that way, they could have no better mother.
Happy mothers day baby.
Here I am riding to find your present mommy!
Here I am holding your presents from me my mommy!
And uh, this may not make sense yet, but it will.
I love you.
