You know that you don’t know.

Ian,

I was listening to a Damien Rice song on the way to work this morning.  Your mom gave it to me in a Valentine’s mixed tape.  Now, I had heard this song dozens of times before, but the last line I heard as I was getting out of the car caught my attention.  “It’s not hard to grow, when you know that you just don’t know.”  This is a really great line about humility and one of its benefits.  There are a lot of things that I hope you learn and that I hope to show you, but humility is one of the big ones.

I love you,

Dad

Little Foxes

leave a comment »

Ian,

There is a bible verse that talks about the little foxes that ruin the field.  I am not sure the exact meaning of that verse, but I think it has something to do with “little” sins and their destructiveness.  Son, be on guard!  I say this because today, I sinned against you, your mom, and God.  I directly exposed you to something I don’t want you to see.  Sadly, I am afraid of the fallen world you are growing up in, yet I routinely fail in that area and damage any credibility I have to point you in the right, holy direction.

I need humility to see that God will be there for you, and I want to be on his side, not my own.

Please forgive me.

Love, Dad
