Encouragement and Family Thoughts01 Feb 2006 05:31 pm

Thomas and I spent last night working on his pinewood derby car. Well, I did. Thomas and I were at loggerheads almost from the moment that I got home. “Clean up the dishes” I said. “blah, blah, blah blah” he heard. “Feed Lucky” I said. “Blah blah” he heard. Finally I got fed up, and sent him to bed around, oh 6:30pm.

Thomas has a wonderful way of apologizing when he has messed up, and last night while on our way to Home Depot, (yeah he went to bed for all of about 3 minutes) he said “Dad, I’m sorry”. “Sorry for what” I pushed. “Anything that I did or might do over the next hours” he said. That was priceless.

Thomas’s response is sort of like my prayers sometimes: God forgive me if I have done anything wrong, and kinda keep an eye out because I feel like I am gonna mess up here soon. I am so glad that God is a more loving and patient father than I am.

9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Matthew 7:9-11
