World's Longest Water Coaster!

Tomorrow I'm taking my oldest daughter to Holiday World for her birthday.  It'll be a fun day with just the two of us.  We can't wait to ride the Wildebeest -- World's Longest Water Coaster!

As a dad, I want to take more opportunities to just play with my kids.  So often I get caught up in the day to day pressures of life and ministry and forget to just be with my kids and have fun.  I love what Monte Swan says in his book, Romancing Your Child's Heart:

For every little boy or girl in our world, there's a father or mother who can get so focused on achieving life's little goals that he or she fails to see the opportunities to make their child prince or princess for an hour, or a day--and do an eternal work in their hearts.
