Caleb and Justice,

Soon we will have our time together. I love you boys more than you will ever know.

I’m sitting on the bench, well one of the benches, we used to stop at on our adventures.  No cows are out to say Hi, but they probably knew you two wouldn’t be here to entertain them.  I’m reminded of playing catch, eating snacks, and just laughing and having a good time enjoying the air with you two.

I love and miss you and pray that when you read this one day, your memories will be preserved from the isolation you are experiencing from your daddy right now.

I love you Caleb and Justice!

Stay Warrior strong!

Warrior Shooting Principle Learned

“Never point your gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.”

My three and a half year old son, Caleb, can now recite this important lesson in firearms training. In the last few days, Caleb is showing a huge interest in target practice with his single shot Nerf UMP-style gun. His laser focus is like a sniper. I also taught him the difference between target shooting and point shooting. As he loads one round at a time with such intense focus and determination to be on point, he makes me a proud daddy.

Caleb’s target is a laid over table with a sticky note on it for target acquisition. The sticky note has a small circle filled in to focus on.

Did I say Caleb is three and a half?

Oh, and my one and a half year old, Justice, is following suit to his brother. He was even asking Caleb to help him load and cock the Nerf gun. Of course, he hasn’t grasped the principle and sometimes you have to duck at his rounds.

Proud Warrior daddy of my warrior sons,

Daddy, will you tickle my back?

Just about every night, Caleb asks the same question: “Daddy, will you tickle my back?” It’s a definite nightly ritual. Tonight, Caleb asked for worship music as he was getting into bed. “Daddy, will you play worship ‘muskic’?” We were praying the Our Father, and I found this song (link below). He said, “Daddy, I like that ‘muskic’.” Son, I pray you always keep a heart sensitive to God and prayer and desire to worship. That is the heart of a true warrior for YHVH.
