Something we will do.

Ian,

I want this blog to be primarily my own thoughts and words about life, love, God, and that sort of stuff.  So that being the case, here is a great blog about some of the things I want you to learn.  Confused?  Understood.  I am writing this to show you two things.

1. I don’t have all the answers and there are gifted, wise men out in the world, blessed by God, and I want you to hear them also.  I don’t have all the answers.

2. You do not fight girls.  You fight for girls.

I love you,

Dad

How to love?

leave a comment »

Ian,

I told you about the conversation I had with my dad and how he never fully learned how to love and how I only know it a little better, but I still struggle with it.  I struggle with loving your mom well.  I love her dearly, but I screw it up all the time.  Only last weekend I was really harsh, ignored, and left your mom alone.  All things that really hurt her.

Right now, I am listening to a sermon about hope and the last point is that there is hope that God is changing us.  Changing me.  I know this, not because I see it in myself, but because I have that hope in God.  God is worth having hope in.  What this means is that, like I said before, we can change things from the past and love better.  I can love your mom better, and you will love your family even more.

That is the legacy that we can move to.  That is the legacy that I want to leave.

I love you buddy.

Dad
