This afternoon my son called and invited himself, wife and son over for supper. He brought the steaks so I got off easy. Haven’t seen them (well not all three at once) for over a week. And they are always welcome – I think they know that.
They brought a movie over – Veronica Guerin. Wow! Gave everything for what she knew was right and didn’t back down in the face of threats – and then the threats were carried out. Made me think – that is what we are supposed to be like as followers of Christ – not backing down in the face of evil. Doing what is the right thing to do not what is safe.
It was a good movie to watch together. As I was sitting there all comfy on my couch enjoying their company, I realized just how much fun it is to have my kids around. Fun watching a grandson grow. Fun watching my son be a dad – changing diapers and all.
