Now, mind you, my oldest son has, at times, blown me away for other reasons. Sometimes less than favorable reasons. This is the same little boy who a few years ago after I had this magical "dad moment" with him, when I shared with him that I believed in him and that he could be anything he wanted to be in this life. That he could, with some hard work become anything he wanted in life. I then listed things like being a doctor, or singer or a football player, anything he put his mind to. It was then that he looks me in the eyes, and with all the sincerity in the world says, "Dad, I want to be a dinosaur!" And with that, the moment was over.
So, as you can see, he isn't always prone to share some reality of who Jesus is. Often, he is incredibly random and goofy. Which I love home for. But he has his moments. This next story is one of them.
He wanted to make sure that I could look at him and be reminded of what love was, of what love felt like.
