Today was a great day...first on the agenda...attending church. It is always a great way to start the day, spending time with like minded people. Today was especially nice. A video of pictures of fathers was shown and the pictures that were gathered were tremendous. It is so great awesome to see how the fathers in our church cherish their kids!
Next...off to Madison to visit with Mickey's dad and family. It is always enjoyable to get with everyone and catch up. Then we were off once again to Pekin to visit with my Dad and Mom.
Getting to spend this much time in the presence of so many wonderful dads remarkable. You come away from a day like today with a lighter heart, knowing that there is so much love that has been given to you and to others.
I realize that there are those out there who have lost their fathers, or who just don't get the opportunity to share their lives with a dad... but I just hope that they realize they are not alone...there is a Dad waiting for them who will never leave them...God.
Isn't it nice to know that He is there when we have a problem, when we have a joy to share...even when we are just relaxing...enjoying all that He has created? I can think of no greater Father to thank today than the father who has given us the most precious gift imaginable.... the sacrifice of His only Son to cover the cost of our sins.
Thanks Father... and Happy Father's Day....
