Like every boy I've played some sports

And oh how I had fun.

Competition got me high;

Even higher when I won!


And like every boy I had my dreams,

But I never realized,

Fatherhood would come along

And be my biggest prize.


So when I got it figured out,

Everything I had.

Was nothing more than second best,

No toppin' bein' dad.


Now all the thrills of victory,

Will never match the joy.

Of knowing I can be a dad,

Just like every boy.


Proverbs 22:6


Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.

I love it! I can think of only one thing that I like better than being a Dad, and that is seeing the face of someone who has just taken God into their heart and has felt his love and just then understood the overwhelmingness of the Lord and what he has given us.
Amen my brother and may Harry fly high in Heaven this day. *Glen*
