Eyes of the Father: Don’t hide away your sins from God

I've noticed lately that Chloe has a tendency to take some of her things, put them in a box, wrap them in a blanket, and either hide them under her pillow, or tuck them all around her underneath the bed sheets.

I am a 41-year-old adult. I have a wife, a family, a career. I'm strong, confident and capable. While I don't hunt, I do engage in other manly activities such as watching sports, fixing things around the house and hogging the remote control.

Eyes of the Father: Don't forget to honor the birthday boy

I remember going to a birthday party when I was a child. It was for my friend William. William and I were in the same homeroom class, and we always played together at recess. He was my best friend.

Eyes of the Father: A father's love is automatic

One day Chloe and I were watching TV together. I was sitting on one end of the couch, and she was lying against me, snuggled up under my arm. At some point I looked down at her and said, "I love you."

Eyes of the Father: We can ask God for a ‘do-over’

Chloe was sitting in the living room one day, trying to put together a puzzle. I watched her as she'd pick up a piece, try to place it into the pieces she'd already put together and not be able to make it fit.

Eyes of the Father: God doesn’t need our help, but seeks it anyway

I had to plant some trees in the yard. Before going out to do it, I asked Cole if he'd like to help me. He jumped up, his eyes sparkling with excitement. He was more than happy to "assist."

Eyes of the Father: Don't block anyone's path to Jesus

I'm not much of a TV watcher. So when I take the time to sit down and watch a TV show, I want to be able to see it.

Eyes of the Father: Seek God’s answers before we act

I keep a small bottle of mouthwash in my truck. One night, Cole was riding in the truck with me and decided to check out his surroundings. He looked at the newspaper I had sitting on the seat. He scrutinized a CD case. Then he reached over and picked up the bottle of mouthwash.

Eyes of the Father: Sorry seems to be the hardest word

A few weeks ago, Amy's parents and 13-year-old niece (Emma) came for a visit. Thirteen! I remember when she was born! I also remember a specific event from when she was 2.

Eyes of the Father: Keep your attitude in check for God

Cole and I were together the other day when out of the blue he said, "Don't get your attitude out. You can't be a big boy if you do." One of his teachers had probably said it at school and as a result, Cole learned an important life lesson: control your attitude.

Eyes of the Father: God is always aware of us

Getting the children to go to sleep each night is often an exercise in frustration. If they can find any excuse - no matter how small - for getting out of bed and prolonging having to go to sleep, they'll use it.
