I Have Bad-Daddy Moments

Posted on March 30, 2010 by Pastor Derick in Family Life, Music, Web Sites

Ever just have one of those days?  It seems like you can’t do anything right?  And those bad choices are compounded by the fact that you have younger versions of you that you are trying to rear up to be Godly and good?  Fatherhood can be tough… i.e. this tweet I sent out about three […]

Ever just have one of those days?  It seems like you can’t do anything right?  And those bad choices are compounded by the fact that you have younger versions of you that you are trying to rear up to be Godly and good?  Fatherhood can be tough… i.e. this tweet I sent out about three hours ago (sigh).

Well, fortunately, there are others out there who trip up at times, too.  I guess in some strange way that makes me feel better.

I’m a big fan of Carlos Whittaker’s blog, Ragamuffin Soul.  He’s a worshiper (check out his spankin’ new EP here), creativity coach (click here), and an awesome Dad.  Check this following LOL-moment out; this is what Carlos had to say about it.

So my 3 year old. He apparently loves the song, “Single Ladies”, by Beyonce. Little did I know how much he loves that song. I was simply making a point that he, in fact, is not a single lady. I thought he would laugh and keep singing.  Man, was I wrong. Notice Sohaila, my oldest daughter, in the center seat.

Carlos, I can so TOTALLY relate.  Thanks for sharing!  That’s not even a bad-dad moment, bro.  It was a no-win situation, all the way — that was awfully fun to watch.

Worship Like You Mean It

The images of Haitians worshiping in the streets on the nationally sanctioned days of prayer and fasting in mid-February won’t leave me.  I wanted to share the video that Youth Specialties’ media guy, Ian W. Robertson, posted on his blog today.  In Ian’s own words… It seems fitting that I post this video on Palm […]

It seems fitting that I post this video on Palm Sunday, the day that celebrates and remembers Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey while people praised him and sang in the streets.  While in Haiti, we experienced a day of people dancing, singing, parading, and praising Jesus in the streets of Port-au-Prince.  Here’s a short video to give you a small glimpse into what that was like…

If there’s one thing I don’t ever want to do halfheartedly, it is to worship God.
