Actually, Friday is not a big break for me as my job gets much busier on the weekends. But at least a very hectic week is coming to an end. The heater job is coming a long much faster than I ever expected and it looks like we might have gas run to the building faster than I thought as well. That is a very good thing, considering we are coming into the cold season of the year.
In a further introduction, if you haven't picked up on it by now, I'm a father of two growing boys. Since my wife is away this weekend on business, I thought I'd take the time to spend with my boys. I cleared my schedule, we went out for pizza, and then both of them told me they had plans for tonight. Boy, where does the time go?One of my favorite songs growing up was The Cat's In The Cradle by Harry Chapin. I had a great relationship with my dad, but for some reason that song attached itself to my heart. If you've never heard it, it talks about a son growing up while the father is just too busy with work to spend time with him. In the end of each chorus the son says, Dad, I'm gonna be just like you. (Isn't that what every father wants???) Anyway as the son grows up the father realizes that he has become just like him because now the son has no time for the father. I pray that my sons do turn out just like me. Because I believe that they know that they are a priority in my life. At least I hope, they would be able to say that Dad spends a lot of time with us. Am I hurt about tonight? No. When they come home we'll probably all crawl up on the couch, pray for mommy, and watch some macho man movie. Life is good!!! I just wish they wouldn't grow up so fast. I sure am glad that one thing that has always been a priority in our household (even though it still needs work) is family time. So Kenny, have fun skating. Kristian, have fun over your friends house. I'm just sitting here thanking God for both of you and writing my blog :) In case you want to know, on Sunday we will be talking about healing. You know we live in a world with a lot of pain. Hey, lets be honest and admit that even the church in general is dealing with a lot of pain. But I believe that we can all see that pain healed as we seek to see others healed. My thot for tonight....Be a friend!...A real friend. And if you'd like to have an EZ Pass to heaven, stop by Sunday night at 6:00 pm
