Each day we marvel at the gift God has given us in Silas. The miracle of birth is a beautiful manifestation of God’s goodness to us. While we long to be perfect parents, we know that is an impossibility. Still, as Stephen told me the other night, we desire to parent Silas as God parents us. God is not frustrated by our neediness. God freely gives good things to His children. God always meets our needs. God is not calloused to our cries. Meditating on God’s example of Fatherhood has helped me to love and tenderly care for Silas through the difficult middle of the night crying spells. When I am tempted to be frustrated, God’s love for me corrects my perspective. We love our little boy!
