Father's Day 08
Now Playing: I Deal in Hope Daily Devotional Blog
Eph. 6:4 WEP You fathers, don't provoke your children to wrath, but
nurture them in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Today is Father's Day. It is also my dad's birthday. He has been gone
since 1988, but he taught me how to live. He taught me God is, Jesus
loves me, He forgives and, though we don't understand His ways, He is
near waiting for me to come to Him.
Dad taught me to develop and use all the talents and abilities God
gave me and to reach for the stars. He listened what I needed to talk,
provided guidance when I craved his wisdom and gave me silence when I
simply needed his presence.
Dad had a sense of humor. He was awful at telling jokes, but never
stopped trying. I learned to not take life situations too seriously,
but to realize life happens, bring my needs to God and deal with life
When I was at my worst as a teen, in pain amd with no hope of a cure
from the arthritis that decimated my once strong body, no hope of a
better quality of life, Dad never gave up on me or my future.
Dad may be many years gone, but the lessons I learned at his knee, I
passed on to my children.
Dads, Godly men, are an absolute need for children. Thank the Godly
men in your life today.
