I’m writing a song, it would be my third worship song and I need to still fine tune the others. He is, He is, He is my Savior is the one for me. (chorus) My child doesn’t usually like to hear me sing and play, this was the same with their mother too. Perhaps it is embarrassing and even more so if they don’t think it’s very good. I went through my marriage with my guitar in the case and it shoved under the bed, she never asked me to get it out and play for her. After my divorce the guitar came out and is now sitting on a guitar stand for all to see. Before the divorce, I was sitting in my lawyer’s office and she said “won’t you be glad to get all your stuff out of boxes and back on shelves”? It’s almost like getting a piece of your life back. How much do we sacrifice going from independent person to marriage? Why did I not see such a simple thing that was so very important to my life, music and realizing she and I didn’t share those same passions. God, Love, Art, Music will be priorities or qualities I would seek out in a future mate.
My child and I share our church together. I’ve just joined our communication team at ‘Branches Church’. My child is growing up so fast, I now make it a point to consider their feelings more than I did in the past. When we have an arguement or disagreement and things get heated, I always try to give a hug. They are forming opinions about their parents, how their home life is. I could see a huge jump in maturity from the 3rd grade to 4th grade. At 10 they are realizing they aren’t babies anymore. They are growing up and will have to start thinking about their future and what they want to do or who they want to be. My child got straight A’s from 9 different subject classes. I am such a proud father.
