The kind of Daddy we have. . .

Take a moment this morning to watch this video. Drink it in and remember. . .this is the kind of Daddy we have. The kind of God we serve. One who has, does and will continue to go to incredible lengths to reveal HIS love. If you don't believe me, check out Julie's blog! (after 18 extremely difficult months, Teddy is home!).

About the video:
A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?
The father who, despite having a heart condition, says 'Yes'. They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying 'Yes' to his son's request of going through the race together. One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.'

To which, his father said 'Yes'
**For those who didn't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever, consisting of three endurance events of a 2.4 mile ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile marathon along the coast of the Big Island

Father and son went on to complete the race together. Watch it and Praise HIM
