Dad Thoughts #1

My daughter (first kid) was born recently. As a new dad I have a few thoughts! Here’s my first one:

Before you have kids (or probably even if you already have kids), once you’ve seen one new born, you’ve seen them all. When it’s your kid, she’s the cutest in the world.

RIP Beverly James Barnett

Yesterday, my Grandpa Barnett passed away. His health had been steadily declining over the past couple of years due to a stroke, so this was not unexpected. But as with all passings, it is difficult.

Grandpa Barnett was the most loving and godly man I ever knew. He was patient and kind; he did not envy or boast; he was not arrogant or rude. He did not insist on his own way; he was not irritable or resentful; he did not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoiced with the truth. My grandfather bore all things, believed all things, hoped all things, and endured all things.

I look forward to seeing him in Glory.

RIP Beverly James Barnett
