Father's Day - June 2014

So many children grow up without a father. 
He might leave or have never been there.
 
I had my dad all growing up, and have him still.
He has been to me an example

of what we have in God the Father.
 
He worked hard, but we always went on vacations.
He brushed my hair when I was young.
He fed me dinner.
He helped to teach and encourage me.
He was strict, but I never doubted his love - EVER.
As I've grown older I see more and more of how deep his love was for his children.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I am also thankful for my hsuband as well, and the father he is to my children.
He is kind, compassionate, and gentle.
He is thoughtful and generous.
He will go out of his way for anyone, especially for his family.
Family is first - and that means so much to me!

 
 
 
 
 
A Father Is:
There in every memory
See his love and care
Strength and hands to count on
Freely he does share

Provider, toil so faithfully
To make our dreams come true
Give strong and tender discipline
Though it is hard to do

A Father is God's chosen one
To lead the family
And point it to His will for life
Of love and harmony...

My father handed down the faith of my grandmother to me, my brother, and sisters.
I am who I am because my father has faith in God.
I know the love of a Heavenly Father because of my earthly father.

The greatest thing I have from my dad is a love for God's Word, a desire to serve Him, and the burden of giving it all to Jesus.
Thanks Dad.
