Today I am celebrating my first Father’s Day as a father. It’s crazy to think my little man is almost 3 months old. Before he was born, I would tell people I was excited about being a dad but wasn’t thrilled about going through the newborn stage. I figured I would like it more when he got to the point he could interact and understand more. Now that I’m almost 3 months in, I’ve learned I don’t mind the newborn stage as much as I thought. Watching him figure things out and develop his personality is fascinating. When he looks at me and smiles it is one of the greatest things in the world.
So for this week’s POTW, I have a picture of us getting ready to head to church on our first Father’s Day together.
I’ve reflected back today about the past 3 months. You guys get to see all the awesome pics of Zeke smiling and having a great time. I wish that was always the case. Maybe I should post some pictures of him crying hysterically to balance it out. There have been points where I have been annoyed with him. There have been times I have been frustrated with him. He has tried my patience. But in the end, my love for him will never change. I thought about how that must be how God feels about me. I know I have frustrated Him and tried His patience. I know I haven’t been the easiest son to deal with, yet His love for me is unconditional. Loving a newborn is easy, but I’m sure it can grow challenging as he grows older. This Father’s Day, I pray that I will always show Zeke the same love that Jesus shows me.
until next time…
