I have two daughters that are so awesome and so mine. I mean that they are definitely my blood. I see in them the same fears and irrational desires that I had as a child. My youngest is curious to a fault just like me. When I was a kid I would take things apart just to see how they worked and often could not get them back together again. My oldest is an attention lover. She like me likes to control the conversation and make sure we talk about things that she knows well and has opinions about. They both reveal sin in me as a father. I find myself angered by the sin in them that I am most guilty of as well. I need grace to be a better father and I need to give grace to be a better father. Oh my how I fail. I am trusting in God for my kids because I screw it up regularly.
