LETTERS TO MY SON: FOR 38 YEARS
Dear Matthew, Today, instead of writing you a letter about who you should marry or how you should act,
I’m keeping it simple.
Because what I want to talk about today has nothing to do with her and a whole lot to do with who she will become...
if you will be this kind of man.
And you’ve watched this all your life. This being— this doing that leads to being.
Since 1975 your dad has made a choice every single day that has led him into a life rich with wisdom. Count that, son, 38 years!
I’ve posted this before, but am absolutely certain that this needs seeing again. You and your Jesus-following friends who have set your faces to honor God, to know Him and love Him and lead others to do the same—
you need this.
This is not just another rule to follow.
This is a decision your dad made and stuck to… for a long, long time.
It is why I trust him. Why my respect for him has grown over 34 ½ years of marriage.
Why that respect turned into love so great I can’t see the keyboard as I type these words to you…
And why you need to read this again.
I love you!
