What can I say on this Father's Day? I am so blessed to have two incredible sons. 

Chandler is just simply amazing. He has grown into a young man who is becoming stronger and stronger every single day. I am so proud of him for what he has overcome in such a short amount of time as well as what he accomplished in school this year with all that he has gone through. All of this and he dotes on his younger brother, protects him and well...loves on him. It is so fun to watch them together. Spencer absolutely follows him like a shadow. 

He is so talented as well. From a little boy, it was quite known that he had amazing eye-hand coordination as he was hitting a baseball at just two years old. He has always had an arm like a rocket and quite accurate as well. He has taken that talent and used in something that he loves...his drums. I am so proud of him that he has done just that. There is no telling where he can take that talent, but the sky is the limit as far as this dad is concerned. I am enjoying watching him. I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for this talented, gifted, compassionate, and sensitive young man. God has already used him in ways that he probably doesn't even know and that is what is fun to see. 

Spencer will be five in a few short months and I just can't believe it! He has come leaps and bounds this year. I think one of my favorite parts of the day is making him laugh. Hearing that belly laugh of his just makes me smile from ear to ear. He still loves his Hot Wheels and I believe he is going to be my little artist from a different perspective. He loves to draw things, make things, pretend, dream, "talk" to different people on the phone, etc. Spencer's future is wide open. It is a blank slate and I pray that he will have a future that he dreams of someday. He deserves it. He is such a gift and blessing and I can't imagine my life without him. 

I can't begin to communicate how blessed I am to have the privilege of raising these two incredible boys. This Father's Day will be a day where I get to think about and praise God that I am a daddy and that I have two amazing boys. Father, give me the wisdom on how to raise them to follow after you and be like David...a man after Your heart.

You are an amazing father. Happy Father's Day, Mike. I have never met someone that has such a gentle hand and enduring patience with children. You are quite remarkable. I know it's not always easy...I am there too with mine...but it is always worth it. I pray for you and for the wisdom you seek to come for the trials that seem to arise on a daily basis. Never forget that God has you and your children and that the plan is a good plan!
