Happy Father's Day

God Made Dads

God took the strength of a mountain
The majesty of a tree
The warmth of a summer sun
The calm of a quiet sea
The generous soul of nature
The comforting arm of night
The wisdom of the ages
The power of the eagle's flight
The joy of a morning in spring
The faith of a mustard seed
The patience of eternity
The depth of a family need
Then God combined these qualities
When there was nothing more to add
He knew His masterpiece was complete
And so He called it ... Dad

I want to honor God today - who loves me when I'm unlovable, who sacrificed his perfect child that I might live, who gave me His Holy precepts that I might have peace and joy in my life, and who forgives me for all my past mistakes. Thanks for being my Heavenly Father!

I wanted to honor my husband today - who sacrifices by working hard so his children can be raised in a Christian environment. We couldn't get by without his sense of humor. We love you.

(... and we'll give him extra credit for eating at McDonalds to get all the toys in a series and wearing matching clothes - no matter how obnoxious - upon request!)

I wanted to honor my dad today - who kept praying for me even when it didn't look like his prayers would ever be answered. We love you.

I want to honor Pawpaw, Grandpa Keith and Papa John today - Each with their own wonderful personality! ...who help us when we are down, take us in when we need a place to stay, extend loving arms to our children, and are such fun and great people. We love you.

And to all our friends that are dads out there... you know who you are... we honor you as well! We hope you had a super dad's day.

Happy Father's Day!

Thanks Cindy. Tell your man we said Happy Father's Day! Give a hug to the BOYZ for us!

Patricia... thanks so much for your kind words. I like the new light summer-ish colors and brightness of the template. It feels good to be out of the "dark". Hope you and yours had a happy Father's Day as well.
