What Makes a Dad
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
He called it ... Dad
The devotion that Chris has for Noah grows with each passing second. I watch as Noah's daddy totes his floppy body from place to place, as he tenderly lifts him out of a bath and gently puts on clothing over stiff arms and legs, his patience for a child that is restless to fall asleep, words of encouragement for a child that cannot self-feed, excitement for a little one that can only roll over, loving glances for a child that is trying so hard to move towards his father in a walker, a daddy that points out airplaines in the sky, a daddy that holds his growing body and feeds him bottles, a daddy that takes long walks and says "I love you, my little buddy."
God couldn't have blessed our two boys with a better father. Chris is the most amazing man I have ever met. His heart swells with this emense love for his family. He is Noah's biggest fan, supporter and believes all things are possible. After a long day at work, he immediately runs to his Noah and embraces him with a loving hold. Scooping him up in his arms kissing him on his forehead. Noah smiling as he is carried from room to room. Chris' love has grown this year as he welcomed his second son. Little Luke tucked in his arms, starting to babble and smile for his daddy. You can tell Chris glows with this love that he holds for them.
On Father's Day I feel so blessed to be witness to such an amazing bond and relationship that he has with these two special souls.
