Father’s Day

Written on 06/18/2012

Yesterday we celebrated a nice Father’s Day with our main guy. Vin and I both lost our Dad’s the same year, so we really enjoy just spending the day as a family.

When I sit and think about the kind of father Vin is to our girls, I can’t help but get a little emotional. It’s so clear to me that God knew what an amazing earthly Father Vin would be to his girls.

From the moment we found out we were having daughter #1 and daughter #2, Vin was nothing less than ecstatic. The moment he held both his little girls for the first time I could see the deep and magnificent love he had for them.

I remember him holding my belly and softly talking and singing songs to his daughters before they came into this world. I remember the endless nights he gladly held them, fed them, changed them, and snuggled them back to sleep. I love seeing him brush their hair and paint their nails. I love seeing him make them meals, and give them baths. I love to see him hug them and kiss them and take them on dates. I love to see the adoration he has for them.

It’s so special, the love a father has for his daughter. Vin shows this so well. Our girls are so blessed to have such an amazing example of God’s love through Vin. He builds them up, he encourages them, he strengthens them, he teaches them, he loves them unconditionally, he prays with them, teaches them about Jesus and for those reasons I know they will grow up to be such strong, godly women.

He’s such an amazing Dad.

We love you!

Vin and Isla spend MANY nights and days like this in the beginning <3
