A few months ago I learned that a Christmas gift my earthly father gave me over 35 years ago
directly influenced my daughter's life 10 years ago.
And to this day it continues affecting her and those around her.
Over Christmas 2013 I learned that another Christmas gift my earthly father gave me some 30 years ago
has directly effected my two son's lives, and was used as a means to bring us all much closer.
And I have recently found that a small gift I gave my oldest son was used by God as an opening to speak to him.
I am awed that God would use the little things in life - over the generations - to affect the present lives of the future.

out of the good stored up in him..."
My Dad is a good man.
My Father is a good man.
My hope is that I am.
