February 8, 2013 by

I Hope my Kids Love Me the Same Way my Fish Do

June 19, 2012 by


On Sunday our pastor used an illustration for Father’s Day that he hoped that his kids would love him in the same way that his dog does. Being that I have never been a big dog person and our kids are allergic to dog hair, I decided to try to make an analogy that would fit […]
