A Baby Boy!

July 21, 2009

Liz and I found out last week that we are going to be having a boy!! The more this sinks in, the more excited I get about being a dad (that is weird to say) of a boy. There are so many things that I am looking forward to: teaching my boy how to hit a baseball, how to throw a football, how to read, how to swim, and so many more things. But then I also think about the weight and responsibility that comes with having a child.  Am I ready for that kind of responsibility? Are we ever?

I think about the culture we live in, and the mindset that comes with being a man. The images of women that are scattered everywhere, the underlying belief that a woman’s worth comes from their looks, the idea that woman are here to serve us men. This is just a glimpse into the world that my boy will experience.  My job is to bring my boy up to be a MAN. A man that will show respect to women, that will see them for who they are on the inside not their looks. I have this responsibility to be the example for my son.  Wow, that is heavy.

Above all else, I pray that my son will know the saving grace of Jesus Christ. I want him to experience the love and mercy of my God.

I have so much to learn.

I am so excited, but I am so scared.

    congratulations! being the father of 2 boys I can tell you that having boys is absolutely the best. Watching Noah grow up (we got a long ways to go) has been amazing.

    boys are the best because you can wrestle with them and cuddle with them at the same time. you are going to be a great dad!
