Eyes of the Father: God's love shines through like a father's kiss

I was standing at the deli counter in a local grocery store, waiting my turn. Cole was with me and I was holding him in my arms. I leaned forward to give him a kiss on his little cheek. His cheek tasted so good, I gave him another kiss. And another. And another.

Eyes of the Father: God’s umbrella protects us just enough

We went shopping while it was raining. I got out of the van, opened my umbrella and held it so Chloe and Cole could get out. Together we walked toward the store's entrance, timing our steps so that we all stayed under the umbrella together.

Eyes of the Father: Salvation is about the message, not the messenger

For several weeks she'd been so close. She knew what sin was, she knew that it separated us from God and she knew that Jesus came to die for our sins. Yet she hadn't quite made the connection between Jesus dying for our sins and us needing to personally accept his sacrifice - and him as savior - in order to receive that forgiveness.

Eyes of the Father: A father's comforting embrace saves us from the darkness

We were visiting Amy's family in Texas. The girls had a sleepover at Amy's sister's place, leaving the men folk to fend for ourselves. We hunted down and killed our own dinner (we ordered a pizza). Then we sat around the campfire (the TV) and told stories of past hunts and tribal victories (we watched a movie). Then we all lay down and went to sleep in our various beds.

Eyes of the Father: Forgiveness of debt is a show of grace

Cole had three plastic action figures. Chloe wanted them, but Cole had them first. As any lawyer will tell you, possession is 9/10ths of the law. However, to broker peace in the household, I asked Cole to share one of them with Chloe.

Eyes of the Father: God won't hide from us, even if we hide from him

The other day, Cole got in trouble for climbing over the armrest and flopping onto the couch. When I got onto him he got upset with me. "I'm going to hide from you!" he yelled.

Eyes of the Father: God 'loves us like a rock,' all as individuals

I heard it from the living room. It was clanging around inside the dryer. It would bang, then roll, then go silent for a few seconds as it got swept up into the clothes. A few seconds later it would find the drum again and make a clattering noise for several seconds before once again being thrown into the midst of the clothes.

Eyes of the Father: God answers prayers, just not right away sometimes

I thought it would be a great opportunity to teach Chloe about praying. To pray anywhere, at any time, no matter what the need.

Eyes of the Father: God’s word is always true

A couple months ago Chloe, Cole and I got in the van and started on our way. As we pulled out of the neighborhood, I turned left instead of right. Chloe noticed the difference in our direction. "Are we going to school?" she asked.

Eyes of the Father: Celebrate Christ every day

Amy has been in Texas visiting her family this week while I stayed home with the kids. She was going to be gone during the Fourth of July, but I was determined that we would still enjoy the day's festivities.

Eyes of the Father: Our needs are met, even if our ‘wants’ aren’t

Chloe's come up with a new declaration. I guess in her mind, it's more of an explanation.

Eyes of the Father: We must take responsibility for our sins

Chloe and Cole have begun blaming each other for every little thing that happens around the house. "Who's making that noise?" I asked them one night. "Chloe is," Cole responded.

Eyes of the Father: God's blessings, like syrup, are easily passed on

Chloe has this thing now where she likes to kiss the top of my head. One recent morning I took her to school, sat her down at the breakfast table and waited with her until she was served.
