Reflections on Christmas, Being a Dad, and Our Heavenly Father

Today's post is written by my husband, Tom.

Christmas reminds me of Christ and His earthly father Joseph and His profound relationship with God the Father. Although it highlights my failing as a human father and even husband, it also spotlights the sweet and tender moments -- the joy I have as a father at a child’s success; the pain when things aren’t going so well. Through it all I love my family. This is magnified like the stars in the sky when you think about the infinite pain and joy we give our Father in heaven and the immensity of His love that we receive through Jesus our Lord.

Yes, it is a merry Christmas.
