My Best Daddy Ever

Gideon is going through a phase where everything he is enjoying in the moment is the "best ___ ever". But JR is always his best Daddy ever.

I am so blessed to share my life with a man who is committed to loving me the way Christ loves His church and loving our children using God's own love as his model.

Our children adore him. Gideon wants every day to be Saturday so that JR doesn't have to go to work. And Naomi is a "Daddy's Girl" through and through.

JR is the kind of father who lovingly allows Gideon to "help" him with yard work and running errands. The kind of father who Naomi runs to when showing off whatever I've dressed her in that day just to hear him say how pretty she is. A father who stays a few minutes longer in the pool to play with his son after being told that he is loved and won't he please stay a "couple four more minutes". JR is the father who looks forward to getting up before the rest of the house to cuddle with Naomi and watch "Sunrise Earth".

JR, I love and respect you so much. Your commitment to Christ is shaping you into a godly, loving man who Gideon, Naomi, and I find it a blessing to follow.

Happy Father's Day, JR!
