Father’s Day Reminder… Kids are Watching

A panoramic windshield on a 1959 Edsel Corsair...

I loved this video.

My son is 6 so it was especially poignant. In recent months he’s watched us pay bills and yes, leave a note on a car’s windshield when we hit it.

Dads have a lot of desire to be perfect… but it’s not about perfection. It’s just living your life as close to Christ’s as possible, and letting your children see you ask for forgiveness when you don’t measure up.

I know as a mom I am giving my son plenty of opportunities to see me ask God (and him) for forgiveness!
