Christmas this year was great as always. I found it even better this year because it fell on the LORDS day and we were able to worship in the Isenberg household. Great lessons are learned at times like these because children seem to always teach you more then you thought you knew.
Hello Dads! My name is Paul Isenberg and I am a happily married man with a 2-year-old daughter named Mariah Jordan Isenberg. This is my first blog so I wanted to introduce myself and let you know what to expect each week as you follow my blog. As an open book, I will be sharing my stories, my successes and failures as a father to hopefully help other fathers and mothers looking for fathers for their children. Sometimes I will be discussing what Dads are to be, and other times I will be discussing what Dads shouldn’t be. Please know that many times my advice will come from Wiser men, and mostly God the father as I believe that he is the best father that anyone could have.
Mariah, my daughter was spoiled this Christmas, but it only took her 10 minutes to get through all of her presents. When she was done opening them, she of course wanted to sit in my lap and let me hold her. Then when she said Daddy I Love You, I saw that through the eyes of a 2 year old.
I had previously learned that as a father things that will make her Christmas special were the gifts that I had given her and the toys that I had bought her. (Or maybe what SANTA brings). However, I learned this year by looking at her that what a child really wants from their father, and that is for us to spend time with them and for us to give them more of us on Christmas. Then I stopped and realized that what a child wants every day, is US, their DADS!
Today I ask you how much of YOU have you given your child this year. The Greatest example of fatherhood is our Father in Heaven, and did you know Scripture teaches us that he is always with us and that he will never leave nor forsake us.
