Father's Day

Father's Day is a day of commemoration and celebration of Dad. It is a day to not only honor your father, but all men who have acted as a father figure in your life - whether as Stepfathers, Uncles, Grandfathers, or "Big Brothers."  

Sadly, I was talking to a friend who teaches Sunday School.  They make a bid deal for Mother's Day, but they they do nothing for Father's Day,  because only a few had father figures in their life.  It made me so thankful that I have several men in my life who have been such a inspiration.  

First, my father..... My Dad is very smart and talented.  Even at 79 years old, he can complete a crossword puzzle like no one's business.  I am also thankful for his 20 years of service in the Air Force.  My hero.....fighting for our freedoms.  I love my Dad!

There was also my father in law, who I also called Dad.  He loved me like one of his own.  Dad is in a better place now, but I know this Father's Day will be very hard for his children.  Cherish every moment you have with you father......

And I cannot forget the newest father to the family.....my son, Brent.  He is such a wonderful father.  He loves Millie with all of his heart.....I am so proud of him!

And lastly, my husband......he is the best Dad around.  He loves his boys with all of his heart.   A true Godly father.......loving, guiding, and caring through it all!

I am also very blessed to have others like my Uncle David, Elder, and Pastor.  Also my brother in laws who are wonderful fathers and just like brothers.  And I can't forget my cousin Jeff.....what a fantastic friend and father he is. (Hehe......he has the most practice with baby #5 on the way!)  I can't name them all, but we have so many friends that amazing fathers too. What an inspiration all of these men have been to me and my family.

This Sunday, take the time to celebrate your father.  Even go an extra mile and find a special man in the church who has no one, or maybe no children, but has been a blessing to your family. You will definitely make their day!
Happy Father's Day!
