I Love My Family

August 29, 2011 — 4 Comments

A man’s family is his greatest earthly asset.  I have without doubt been blessed beyond measure.  I first met my wife in July of 2001 (you can catch a glimpse of our amazing story here) at Heritage Youth Conference in Colorado Springs, CO.  We have many wonderful and precious memories from our courting years and into our marriage. February 2, 2010 our family begin to grow as we were blessed by God with a little boy, Carter Daniel Short.   Not too far behind came sweet little Avalynn Mariah.  They both have great dispositions and are a pleasure to raise.  Yet, no one should be surprised as they absolutely have the best mom in the world.  She is not only committed to being everything they need her to be, but she is also a sweet and loving wife.  Frankly, I would be lost without my family.

    I love the positve memories of a complete family. It reflects the years of training as a Dad, Mom, from the children and to the children from there Dad and Mom. Can one imagine what is missed of Love, Trust, Joy, and lots of Prayer when just one child is birth into a marriage. My friend you have a beautiful family and the memories you’ve posted looks wonderful. Two sets of Scriptures comes to mind: Due. 4:9; PS. 127:3-5.

    I love you and your family and the Butler Family are praying for you all. In closing: “Teach to Learn how to grow; Grow to Learn how to Teach”
