Today, I get to honor my dad...
Dad, we, your daughters, along with mom, agree wholeheartedly that you are a man of integrity, honor, character and truth. You love it when the truth wins out and when people's hearts come back to the Father God, you rejoice! Although a man of few words - the words you do speak have much weight as they're filled with nuggets of wisdom! Your motto is quite simple, "When God says "Go", sometimes man will most likely say, "No."
You taught us to never take someone's opinion of another human being and run with it...you also taught us to remember if we didn't hear it from the person - but only heard it from others it's just hearsay and you've reminded us of the Proverbs that says, "Every story sounds true until you set the record straight." Dad, there is so much more that you live and lead by great example! Even as I write I'm reminded of making sure I don't live by what others say, but only by what God says.
I love you so much dad...you are one who allowed us to see major glimpses of God as one who loves us and how we can easily approach Him boldly to the throne of Grace. Happy Father's Day to our God for allowing us to have you dad as our first earthly hero. Happy Father's Day, we love you!
