Imitate your Father!



Ephesians 5:1 says, " Be imitators of God, as dearly loved children." Judson is such a perfect wordly example of this verse. Imitating Neal is his favorite thing do to. If Neal has on his boots, Judson wants his boots on too. Neal loves spending time on his farm and riding the tractor. Guess what Judson wanted for Christmas? A Massey Ferguson tractor just like his daddy. Judson loves to talk about going to work and often the people he works with are Neal's friends ( Jared, Justin, Tommy, Tim). Why does he want to be like his dad so much? Because he is so loved by his daddy. Neal is a wonderful DAD! He lets Judson help him when he is working around the house or on the farm. Judson trusts his daddy completely. Being just like him is all he wants to be. I ask him one time what he wanted to be when he grew up, expecting him to say a football player or a construction man. His answer was, " I want to be a daddy." May we all know the the width and depth and height of our Fathers love. And may we long to imitate him because of that great love!!
