There is never a dull moment as a father. Today, Truitt is 8 months and the little dude is already pulling up. His strength makes me proud. He is benching 8 pounds, squatting an easy 15, vertical jump is nearing an inch, and his 5-yard-crawl is well under 10 seconds. He is on track to suit up on the varsity squad in another 15 years. :)
Seriously, I really miss date nights. Truitt is dependent upon his momma right now. God didn't make me with the ability to fulfill some of his nutritional needs.
However, on Thursday night, thanks to Sylvia Tucker, Kayci and I went on a date. We ate Mexican food and then went to see Denzel's newest movie--The Great Debaters. GO AND SEE IT! This movie is magnificent, captivating, redemptive, convicting, inspirational...it is a masterpiece. Denzel rarely lets me down. This movie portrays racism in the 1930's. In the south, it was utterly mind boggling how human beings could treat other humans. It is appalling. The speeches delivered in this movie are worth downloading onto the ipod.
The movie was great, but more than that, it was great being with the love of my life. Kayci inspires me. She makes me want to be a better Christ-Follower. Last night, it was midnight and I was ready to go to bed, but I couldn't turn out the lamp because she wouldn't quit reading her Bible. I felt awful trying to tell her to put her Bible up so that I could turn off the lamp.
I can't wait for the next Date Night.
