Waiting For Daddy To Come Home May 23, 2010

I read an email today sent by one of the “mothers” from my church entitled, “Waiting for daddy to come home.”  I saw two girls waiting while the dog laid on it’s back. I advanced the scroll bar south, more dog and girls in pink, then, arms up and open.   The next frame showed the youngest of the two in a runner’s still frame arms wide and outstretched now. The next frame, the President getting ready to receive his daughter in a fatherly elevation into his arms.  They embrace while he holds her.

In these snapshots the obvious transcends to the background (the President and his two daughters).  I could only think what that my sons father is missing out on.  Will he ever understand or know the joy, exhilaration, and love in a moment like that?  Will he fully appreciate the gift of fatherhood and the command he’s been called to by being a dad?  I know what it feels like (being a mom) when I return home from working all week to spend the weekend with our sons.  It’s one of the greatest feelings in the world.  Pure, unadulterated, authentic, organic love.
