And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.  
2 Corinthians 6:18

I am a fan of driving. But I really enjoy the conversations that happen when I am driving for an extended time with someone I love. Tonight, I got to drive and talk with my dad for a couple of hours. We talked about everything from "gibbous" to graduate school. The best part, though, was hearing him describe to me some of the interactions he had with various acquaintances of one of my brothers. He was relaying story after story of individuals who told him how much they appreciated and loved his son. And I got to see a glimpse: here was a 73-year-old man who loved "watching" his son. 

"You never get tired of watching your kids, do you, Dad?" I asked.
"No, I never get tired of watching my kids," he replied with the warmth that only a dad has. 

He went on to witness to me in the way he always does, "and isn't it wonderful to think that our Heavenly Father never gets tired of watching us, either?"

Yes it is, Dad. Yes it is.
