Our family is closer than ever because of the little surgery that Dawson had yesterday. He is recovering well, but is homebound and must stay in bed for a few days. Nothing grips a dad’s heart like seeing his children in pain. Honestly, it’s hard to imagine God as distant and aloof when you think of Him like a father. I’m quite confident that His love far surpasses mine. So, He must really love us because I sure feel for my son right now.

I picked up little Alivia at Jared and Megan's late last night. She was waiting for me in her jammies with her bag by the door and yelled "daddy" when I arrived. There's nothing like being a father.

Thank you to all that have been praying. May God be close to you, like the Father He is…
