The other day, Dakota came home from church wearing a black suit, a long black overcoat, and a necktie that he somehow managed to fix into a perfect bow. (He says he learned to tie a bow using a regular tie on Youtube). Despite the cold and rain, I insisted that he follow me outside for a picture. In that moment, and many others like it, I found his quirky individuality very delightful. In a way, he reminds me of myself at that age when I used to wear a suit to school, but I was more of a misfit than a trendsetter. Somehow Dakota pulls it off with much more grace and style.

If he could only see himself through my eyes, he would know how he makes me proud.

Spoken like a truly proud father. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they really could see themselves as we see them? Wouldn't it be even more wonderful if we could see ourselves as our Father sees us?
