The Greatest Job on Earth!

I am writing this blog as a tribute to my boys. They are such a wonderful blessing. I love them more than words can truly say. I know this is an over-used cliche, but I will use it anyway. If you would have told me ten years ago that I would have four boys, I would have either laughed hysterically or cried uncontrollably. But, now, as I look at them when they are sleeping or glance at them when they are doing something else, all I can say is Lord have mercy. They are growing up too fast and I want them to stay put. I know that this is not how it works, but I want to enjoy them every second. The world that they will face is so different than the world I faced. The evil that they will have to endure is mind-boggling. And yet, I know and trust that God will take care of them. He has a plan and a future for them. This I know and believe. So, boys, thank you. Thank you for putting up with my busy schedule and my inability, at times, to be a good father. I want you to know that being a father is the greatest job on earth!
