Good Good Father

In the back of our car there is a kite.  My mister has had the kite since he went to the OBX in Carolina.  I wonder if he bought that kite thinking he might one day have boys that love to spend time with their daddy and fly kites together.

Chris Tomlin, worship songwriter and dad, has writtten a great book for littles that starts out with a kite.  But, more importantly this story is about many of the ways (God is inexhaustible) that God loves us.  It is beautifully illustrated.  It is so true

One of the best things about my husband is that he is a good Father.  We had such a short courtship before we got married that I rarely got to see him around children.  I knew from his character that he’d be a great Father.  And, now I witness it.  My men love to fly a kite during the week at a local park, always scouting out the new parks to hopefully catch the wind.  He is more patient with those boys than I will ever be – which they desperately need.  He is loving and plays with them on the floor or with toys.  He is so caring toward them.  They resemble him.  He teaches them the truth about Jesus.

These are all good ways in which hopefully the boys will see God the Father in my husband, their earthly dad, so that one day they might come to know God.

This book by Tomlin is available to you.  Tommy Nelson is giving one away to a reader!  Get excited because this will make a great addition to your at-home library, wonderfully teaching your children about God.

One question: what is one activity your children love doing with their dad?

    Micaiah absolutely loves wrestling on the floor with his Daddy. He wears himself out most nights playing with his Daddy on the floor. One of the best views of my day, watching them play together!

    Wrestling! Sam says, “you can play with mommy and you can wrestle daddy.” Gray is really really getting into it now.

    My girls love playing games with my husband He is a good sport to play everything from “Candyland” to “Dominion”. This time with them shows that he cares about them and it can often be a great time for conversation as well as fun.

    Emma loves to ride in daddy’s truck. Anytime she rides in it she announces that we are on an “adventure.” She has come to know that when she gets in the truck with Daddy she usually ends up somewhere fun! Whether it’s the park or garage sales on weekends…its an adventure with here daddy!
