As I have grown up, moved out, moved on, and moved away from home I have always had a lurking voice and feeling that I’m “just a jack of all trades, and a master of nothing”.
There are certainly some things that I’m close to a master, my career for one, but even in that I sometimes feel stupid for not knowing things at times – but that’s all of us in this field of I.T., there is just too much to know, it’s better to be specialized.
So, with a baby on the way, there’s just one more thing to try to measure up to “good dad”. Now I “know” that I don’t have to measure up to anything, and I know my wife will think I’m just being hard on myself (which again, I “know” I am) and at the same time I am keenly aware of areas that I need to work on. I know that in God’s eyes, it only takes effort for him to call us “good and faithful servant”. This is what I need to focus on… another step by step moment.
