Eyes of the Father: Finding our own sins through reflection

We went to Florida for a family vacation. We packed the van with literally everything but the kitchen sink - and if we could have found a way to pack that, we probably would have.

Eyes of the Father: Special gift readily accepted

I've had a little bit of back trouble since I was a teenager. It's nothing serious, but every once in a while it'll go out on me. I can usually get it to go back in place, but sometimes it's a little ... stubborn.

Eyes of the Father: Don't want — God will provide your needs

Chloe's come up with a new declaration. I guess in her mind, it's more of an explanation. Lately, she's discovered that she lacks certain things. These things are not necessary to health or survival, though.

Eyes of the Father: Do we have God or does God have us?

We were on vacation at the beach last summer and went swimming at the hotel's swimming pool. I don't know about you, but there seems to be something wrong with that. If you're at the beach, why are you swimming in a pool? In spite of the warped logic, that's where we were.

Eyes of the Father: Forgiveness isn’t easy, but it’s a path to grace

Chloe and Cole got into an exchange of words. Somewhere along the way, Chloe said something very hurtful to Cole. I could tell he was on the verge of tears.

Eyes of the Father: Only one thing of value is truly free

"Nothing in life is free," my mother once told me. To a 7-year-old boy, this didn't make much sense. After all, I had plenty of things that I'd never paid for. Surely there had to be something in life that was totally without cost. So I wracked my brain to come up with it.

Eyes of the Father: Set an example for our children, as God does for us

When I was 19 years old, I injured my ankle. Badly. I was playing volleyball in someone's backyard without any shoes on (much to the consternation of my mother). I came down wrong, turned my ankle over and heard a loud "pop."

Eyes of the Father: Putting the Golden Rule to the test

One day I took a walk with Chloe and Cole. Cole loves his big sister, and expressed an interest for her to walk with him. In response, Chloe sped up and walked ahead, leaving Cole behind.

Eyes of the Father: Be not ashamed of your love for Christ

As I write this, Amy and I have been married for 12 years. For more than half of that time, she's been in school getting some degree or another. A few weeks ago, Amy received her educational specialist degree.

Eyes of the Father: Learn from a mistake, be it sin or a spilled Coke

Just recently I got a new truck. I'm almost 40 years old, and I've never had a new vehicle that was all my own, until now.

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.

"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.

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.
