Blessings Delayed, Blessings Missed

Blessings Missed Trailer from Family Gravity Media on Vimeo.

Personally, I had certain goals before I wanted to meet before becoming a father. These aren’t goals I think every person should have, but they were important to me.

– I didn’t want to bring a child home to an apartment, I wanted to bring a child home to a house.

– I wanted to have manageable debt so I could adequately provide for my family without feeling I was sacrificing so much to the point that the kiddo would be missing out other things, and be able to at least put a little away for college.

– I wanted to be married at least for four years because I think it’s important for a marriage to mature. Heck, I’m still finding things out about my wife.

– After losing both parents and one of my closest friends (who is the namesake of my daughter) I wanted to make sure I was emotionally ready.

Obtaining an MBA was on the list, but that was flexible. I did meet my future spouse while I was working on it. And I wanted to wait until there was a Democrat in the White House. I’m kidding, seriously, I’m kidding on that last sentence. But the last thing I needed was the church making my wife and I feel guilty for wanting to start a family on the timeline that we felt God wanted us to start one.

    Very admirable. But it's scary how this reminds me of the premise, and opening moments, of "Idiocracy."

    I need to learn to avoid certain videos you post on here. So many angry, bad, thoughts. Apparently, an adopted child isn't a blessing. And, maturity and stability is over-rated. And you have to sound like Jack Handey when saying stupid things (oh, wait, that one I DO AGREE with!!!).
