Sanctification through child rearing (not child bearing on my part)

6 weeks and counting. Time flies by fast.
God uses many things in my life to sanctify my soul. This little one will be a life long tool used by God to effect that process in my life. Already, I understand more what God means when He tells us that He loves us as our Father. And I've begun to understand the Gospel of grace a little bit more as I try to calm her at 3am and she just won't listen (sounds familiar). I'm sure God has much more in store for me and my wife as our children grow up. Just like only a surfer knows the feeling so it goes with fatherhood.
