Messy Parenting and the Grace of Jesus

I originally wrote this entry two years ago.  Probably a mixture of frustration and fear that our oldest would soon be leaving the "nest" and doing life on his own.  God continues to be gracious in the hour of our need.


The following article was posted on Desiring God yesterday and I found it very timely on where my heart is as a dad to a teenager that could possibly be close… a year or so… from moving away from my nest.  And as a Christian dad that fails miserably every day, I struggle.  But my hope is not of this world and it is there I find my peace with life’s circumstances.
