One of my favorite pictures is Patrick holding a sack (baby Tristan!) and having both boys fight the fire-breathing dragon. With their father there, they didn't have a single ounce of fear. When you know you are protected, loved and secure - of whom should you be afraid?
He doesn't just parent from afar, He gets down to our level and talks with us, smiles and encourages us. Somehow, you can hear Him whisper how much He enjoys being with you. His delight is YOU.
He takes the time to teach you so you can learn and grow. From a child's eyes, you see how strong and all-powerful He is. You wonder, "Is there anything too hard for Him?" Nope, not my dad!
He is so patient with us. It's easier to accomplish it Himself, but He invites us to be a part of it. Why? Because He is love. And one day, you will tell the world of this great love that you were shown.
On this Father's day, our gift to our family is Patrick. What a legacy he will leave for those boys and I can't be more grateful!
