A Father’s Letter

This is an amazing letter one man wrote to his son. It’s just beautiful, and the older my kids get the more relevant this becomes:

” I am now 43, and as I sit here writing this letter to you I cannot help but wonder where the past 17 years of my life have gone. I found a box of pictures yesterday that took me back. You were so little; I was so young. Today you stand eye to eye with your dad, and I can no longer carry you in my own strength.

Your strawberry hair has turned rust and your face is in need of a shave. Your voice is a deep baritone and your hands are as big as my own. But as I look into your eyes I still connect with the silent conversations we had at those 2AM feedings—when all our dreams were so young, fresh and new.”

That is a small excerpt.  Follow the link and read the whole thing at the blog “Wrestling with an Angel.”
