With Father’s Day approaching, I like to take a moment and reflect back on all of my wonderful memories of my Daddy. I can’t help but marvel at his greatness. And if I mentioned this to him, he would tell me that it is God who makes him look good. There is one thing for sure; God blessed me with an amazing Daddy. And I am so very, very thankful for him.
So often we forget to tell the ones we love how much they mean to us. We neglect to tell them just how much their love, forgiveness, patience, and strength have helped to mold us. While I don’t think I can fully express just how great my Daddy is to me, I’m going to make an effort to tell him the words of my heart.
Thank you, Daddy, for loving me. Thank you for always making me feel so safe and secure, when I was growing up. Thank you for loving Mommy and always being so good to us. Thank you for working so hard to provide for me, especially during the times when I didn’t appreciate it. Thank you for punishing me when I needed it and holding me when I needed that, too. Thank you for always showing me there is a positive side to everything.
Thank you for showing me how to respect others and to be a better person. Thank you for reminding me that I’m nothing, but God is everything and sometimes He makes me look good. Thank you for being a wonderful Daddy, pastor, and friend. Thank you for teaching me about the Old Path and setting up stones for my life.
Thank you for loving my husband and for accepting him as your own. Thank you for being such a wonderful Papaw to my kids. Thank you for always making sure they have happy money. Thank you for teaching me how to work in the garden, but more importantly how to share it with others.
