#52 For a son who shares the same passions yet is different.

?????????????????????????
Since becoming a father almost 18 years ago, the Lord has formed my character and parenting style in so many humbling ways, it is hard to summarize the blessing it has been. My wife and I waited to find out about the gender of our first born until he came. Until that time, I always referred to him as Baby Blessing. Then, one October day, he finally came. A baby boy. personality and all!! Through the years his mother and I have been fascinated with him and how different of a temperament and person he is from us. As Type A individuals who are very social, we find that our son as a Type B introvert who is a thinker and a young man of few words, is a fascinating individual to watch grow up in life, pursuits, hobbies and the Lord. It has caused me to pause and watch and worship God for making people different than me. I see a lot of things we share a passions for, yet his expression and interaction for it is refreshingly different than mine. I’ve learned to bless the Lord for that.
