Fabulous Father

Father’s Day is fast approaching, and I love thinking about what a fabulous father Josh is to our kids.  I was flipping through some pictures and found so many wonderful memories of Josh with the kids.  I always want them to be very aware of what a treasure they have in him.  He is extremely generous, much more fun than their mom, creative in how he plays with them, and above all, he loves God’s Word and knows that teaching our kids about Who God is and telling them of His Great Wonders is of utmost importance.  He is a good, godly man.  I love how he fulfills his role of Father.  So, let’s start celebrating today!!

Now, on to those pictures I found…..Josh is FUN and ADVENTUROUS.  This includes, but is not limited to, bike rides, Little House on the Prairie at The Fox for the girls, throwing kids way high up in the air, daring them to do things  I would encourage them NOT to do, hula hooping and much more.  Three cheers for a FUN DADDY!!

He is also LOVING.  These kids just don’t know how good they have it……

He has done more than his fair share of putting toys together, cutting grass and other fatherly stuff:

Here is one my favorite pictures……

DSC03102We were at the beach for vacation and wanted a family picture.  Wellllll, we had just snapped a picture when we quickly realized Mack had pooped through his diaper and clothes onto Josh’s shorts.  It was quite hilarious to ME.  To Josh, not so much.  We all get a good laugh about it now.  Gotta love memories.

 

And this next picture cracks me up.  I had passed off the task of teaching Mack his colors to Josh after my frustrations had peaked.  Everything was “Lellow.”  Now I realize it totally doesn’t matter at what age your kid learns colors, but Mack was so carefree about learning that I was concerned…shouldn’t have been, but I was.  So here is what it looked like while Josh and Mack came together for Colors 101:

Hilarious.

I will end my little blog tribute to Josh with one of my all-time favorite photos:

DSC_0142We were at the hospital, having just welcomed Mack into the world, and Josh is introducing the girls to Mack.  Such a precious memory.

Josh, you are an amazing father!  You are most definitely fun and adventurous.  You are creative and patient and kind and loving.  You work hard and provide for all us and you are the most generous person I know. You are a positive person and a strong leader. More than any of that, you should be proud of how you point our kids to Jesus in all you do and all you say.  They truly have a gift in you, and I intend to make sure they know that til the day I die!

PSALM 128

Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to Him.

You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.

Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.

Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the Lord.

May the Lord bless you from Zion; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.

May you live to see your children’s children–peace be on Israel.
