Tuesday Prayer for June 11th, 2013: First Father's Day



I am his father and
he is my son and
I am at his feet as I
hold him up over my head
just to hear him giggle.


He thinks I am wonderful for no other reason than I can do

this

right now

(at the moment he most needed it).

I am at his feet and

he is looking down at me and

his giggle washes over me like

the most

expensive

perfume


ever

(at the moment I most needed it).

My sins and my father’s and his father’s and his father’s are all washed away by these blessed giggles of this blessed child.
This is grace and beauty and forgiveness and hope.
This little boy.

I know there will be other days but
this one...
this day...

...is good.

I am his father and
he is my son and
I am at his feet as I
hold him up
over my head
just
to hear
him giggle.
