Thank you Chanin.What a wonderful acronym!That we may live up to it's high calling.
Thank You Chanin!For years I had been given a hard time about being a young father and having so many children. It made me feel a sense of shame towards fatherhood and in turn I had a skewed view of being a dad for many years. At 34 years old I have 6 children ranging in ages from almost 16 years down to 3 years. I have learned to appreciate being a father. My children are getting older. The hourglass of time for my influence is running down. I am savoring the time more than ever. Your post is a great encouragent! I pray I will press more perfectly to these things. God Bless,-Robert

RobertWow, 6 children in 13 years! Almost as good as us; we managed 7 in 12 years. No-one else's opinion matters in the slightest. As they say in computer-land... enjoy.
I am in good company of large families. We have 7 chidlren, six living. 10 years old and under in 12 years. I am blessed to be a father, what a humble job description it is! Blessings,Doug
