So since mom passed away I have been dealing with “what’s my purpose” on this earth. I fully believe God put me here to take care of mom. Why else would she have given birth to me at the age of 40 after being told she couldn’t have babies anymore.
Then I see this post on our 2nd sons Facebook page:
Dear Dave Kautz, Thank you for pushing me all those times to develop a better work ethic. I know I pushed back, complained, whined, and excused my way out of a LOT of situations and arguments. BUT the fact is, I live on my own now, pay my own car insurance, have my own phone plan, and am working 9 to 10 hours a day. And it feels really good. You were there to correct my path how ever rough the path correcting was. Not only did I eventually learn, but with Jesse Kautz soon approaching that age I pray that you also learned a few things that will aid his transition into becoming a Godly man like ourselves! Love you. P.s. Wana BBQ soon? or go shooting?

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Deuteronomy 6:4-7 4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
My purpose is also to help The Principal be the Godly example and father he was chosen to be.
My treasures aren’t on this earth…..sure someday I will have grandchildren to spoil as reward, but the work I do here….it’s not for nothing.
I may not see the big picture until I get to the feet of my Maker, but this little Facebook post as given me a glimpse of it.
I linked up with Denise in Bloom Calling All Beautiful Women…..go check out the other Beautiful entries.
