The Cry of a Father

As parents we will let our children down. We hope it doesn’t happen, but it will happen because we are flawed people. As a follower of Christ and a father, my aim is to connect my daughters with the only person who will not let them down, Jesus. Even now as our oldest is in first grade, I can’t be there every minute of the day, but Jesus is there with her. I know it sounds a little cheesy, but it is real and it helps me get over my worry.

Hillary and I are big Shane and Shane fans and when I saw their latest music video, I knew I had to post it. It is the cry of a father that his children might know the person who they really need. It definitely brought tears to my eyes.
