MOLESKIN- Sweaty Palms Emotional Hijacking of Sweaty Wheel’s Q(love ya old fart)
A special thank you to PAX members (Baby, Penn-Seagal, Queen, and Donatello) who participated in the gift giving for Training Wheels big day; a VBDay Q.  As his father and chief mentor I can not think of a better way to start his 18th birthday celebration than with this group of Godly men, who are working hard every day to improve their lives and the lives of their families. They are all positive role models.
As fathers of faith we must not become complacent in our parenting.  As men, we to often focus on our role as providers at the expense of being nurtures and teachers of unconditional love.  As young children, I made an extra effort to teach my 2.0’s that their father would love them “no matter what.”  “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.” John 15:9.  I also always wanted them to know that their father would, “always have their back.”  As they grew older, they also began to understand that this gave me the strategic position of kicking them in the back side (figuratively) when they needed it.
Eighteen years and 1 day ago I was a much different man.  I was someone who always believed I was in control.  With the emergency birth of my son and my wife’s medical complications, I was awaken to the false sense of control we have in our lives.  Only our Father could Shepard me through the moment.  Christ carried me, he lifted me up, he gave me strength.  I felt his presence and knew that no matter what the consequence he would be with me.
