It was eight years ago today that Brady Benjamin Ward made me a dad. I rejoice and thank God for the gift of my son.

Other events unfolding this day offer me a sober reminder that even as we rejoice today, other's mourn. I know all too well the reality of that dichotomy of life. They also remind me that we can never take even one moment our time together as parent and child for granted.
Lord willing, I look forward to many more years giving my son roots to help him find his wings, and watching him grow into the person God has created him to be.
Happy Birthday son!
