My Girl, my Dad and me! My girl is doing her Nixon impression, I believe. Although I did not get to have my Dad around when I was young, God has given us a wonderful gift in our relationship today. I am grateful and love him very much.
Today I am publicly declaring a day of thanksgiving for each of the Dads that God has used to touch, mold and shape my life.
My hubs – does he look photo shopped in this pic? Our beginning family in 2003. Loving, patient and sacrificial dad to my Girl.
My sweet, Father In Law. Thankful for his gift of love, example and sacrifice to his family which is still impacting me and my sweet girl, today.
Of course there is one Father who I also want to acknowledge!
My Eternal Father has been a faithful Father to me, example and friend:
My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
He has done miracles in my life.
He has brought me from a parched land to a land of milk and honey.
Holy is His Name.
A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.
“And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous–to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
May you know Him, the One True Father in Heaven,
and rejoice in His love and faithfulness all of the days of your life.
