In this video, Dee and her dad are sharing a special moment. But the truly heartwarming thing about this video is that there is nothing "special" about it. Jay shares moments like these with each of our three children every day. He is a down-in-the-trenches, roll-up-his-sleeves, get-his-hands-messy type of father, and I love him for it. You'll never see Jay on the sidelines when it comes to his family. That includes sweet giggling moments like these, but also the messy poop-up-the-back moments, or rocking-the-feverish-baby-all-night-long-while-she-vomits-on-your-shirt-moments, or the-toddler-doesn't-feel-like-behaving moments. Oh, and he does dishes too! I'm exceptionally fortunate to be married to such a gem.
John 15:19 (NIV) If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
What We Do
We're a composting, rain-water-collecting, clotheslining, organic-backyard-farming, organic-food-eating, reusable-bag-toting, backyard-chicken-raising family that strives to put God first in everything we say and do. (Is there a political party for that?)
