What are your favourite Daddy songs? Or Mommy songs? What songs encourage and/or challenge you as you parent the little ones entrusted to your care?
Watching You by Rodney Atkins.
Have you heard it? Even if country music is a burr in your saddle, I have a hard time imagining you not appreciating this song. I’ve loved it since the day I heard it. It’s my favourite. And it’s going to be pretty hard to beat.
I don’t have any little boys of my own. Not yet. Hopefully some day. Regardless of boys or girls, I’m know my kids will pick up a lot of stuff from me. It’s crazy how shaped we are by our early childhood experiences, in ways we have no idea about. I have no doubt that my kids will pick up bad habits and attitudes from me as they grow up. That’s a sobering thought. And as we see with this youngster and his dad, I pray that by watching me my kids will also pick up want it means to know and follow Jesus.
