My husband is a Godly man who leads his two boys spiritually. First of all he leads by example and most mornings the boys will find daddy sitting at his desk or at the kitchen table reading his Bible. After dinner he leads our family devotions through prayer, worship, scripture memorization,and reading from a children's Bible book.
Have you ever seen the mama gorilla at the zoo who has a little baby on her back picking at her, swinging off her arm, jumping on her and so forth? The mama gorilla doesn't even budge...............my husband is the same way. I always tell him he has the patience of a mama gorilla. By the time he gets home my patience has been exhausted and thankfully he has more than enough patience to deal with me and the boys.
He Says "I Love You "
I can guarantee you that my boys have no doubt of their father's love for them. Not a day goes by without my husband assuring our boys of his complete and unconditional love. Hearing my husband tell one of the boys "I love you" warms heart every single time. I have absolute no recollection of my father ever telling me he loved me.................not a one!
He Loves Me
Not only are my boys sure of their father's love for them but they completely trust and know that daddy loves mommy. I think this is one of the best legacies a father can leave behind for their children. Divorce is prevalent in our society nowadays and it has even permeated the church but the boys know that their parents won't go down that path. I trust that one day both of our boys will be able to look back at their daddy's example of loving his wife as Christ loved the church and model that in their own marriages.
