Eyes of the Father: The one who is the focus of the party is always special

Chloe was recently invited to another child's birthday party. We went and bought a gift, wrapped it up and took it to the party venue. The party was being held at an ice skating rink which had a "special" room where the "special" girl could have her "special" time uninterrupted by the "common people," it seemed.

Eyes of the Father: Dipping our toes in sin can trap us

"Daddy, help!" Chloe's voice, filled with panic, rushed up toward me from the back seat.

Myers: Air, gravity, God — what we don't see still exists

On a recent cloudy day Chloe asked me, "Where's the sun?" I told her it was behind the clouds. "No it's not," she replied. Apparently, Chloe is having a hard time believing something is there if she can't see it.

Eyes of the Father: Don’t cuddle with sins

Cole's favorite thing to hold while he sleeps at night is a Teddy Bear. It's cute, it's cuddly, but it's also misleading. Before I explain, I want to tell you about the origin of the Teddy Bear.

Myers: Even a white lie can erode a child’s trust

Halloween is tonight. All this week, the conversations among Chloe and Cole's friends at school have been about monsters, ghosts and things that go bump in the night.

God wants acknowledgement of sins, not good deeds

One-upmanship. A strange word, which describes a strange behavior. One who practices one-upmanship is trying to get more or do better than someone with whom they're competing.

God lowered himself to our level through Jesus

I was sitting on the bed reading the news when Cole came to me and asked me to tie his shoes.

Eyes of the Father: Good intentions or not, always obey God’s word

While we were getting out of the van one day, Chloe had a small bag of candy in her hand. Somehow a few pieces dropped to the garage floor. This was no big deal, but I feared they would attract ants, so I stooped down to pick them up.

Standing between the snake’s bite and God’s children

One day while I was at the office, I received a telephone call. The caller said, "I'm standing out in front of the office. I need you to come out here, but don't come out the front door." Not fully understanding what was going on, I walked up to the front door and looked out. There, lying stretched out across the front door was a Black Snake.

He protects us from bad guys, sharks and a dangerous world

Cole came to my side of the bed in the middle of the night. He tried to crawl into bed with me and Amy, but I stopped him.

Use God’s blessings to you as a chance to bless others

Every year during the Fourth of July, we go to a fireworks show. This year we went to our usual spot and settled in to enjoy the day.

Myers: There’s a difference between wants and needs

I got Cole up this morning and the first thing he wanted was something to drink. I went into the kitchen, opened the refrigerator and grabbed the container of milk.

A few words of blessing should lead to many more

One morning on the way to church, a cute and wonderful thing happened. Chloe was sitting in her car seat, Amy and I were talking, Cole was snoozing (I'm telling you, that boy just can't stay awake in the van. If he just looks at the van, his eyes start to glaze over).

Love shared by dad, child lasts forever

One day I asked Chloe, "Do you know how much Daddy loves you?"

Take your concerns, no matter how small, to God

We all have problems of some sort, don't we? Granted, some of our problems are not as big as those others face. It would be very easy for us to look at our problems then look at those of others, and feel guilty for being concerned about our "small" problems in light of theirs, right?
