~*~For my Dad~*~

My Dad...for as long as I can remember, he's been one of my favorite people on Earth! He's smart, wise, full of great advice, the best listener and funnier than all get out! Put the two of us together and it's a laugh-a-thon and most times we're not even sure why!

He's the kind of Dad you can go to when you just want to talk or you have a problem that needs fixing...never too busy for his kids.

I learned to look *up* from my Dad. To this day, I'm a stargazer. I inherited a love of walking from my Dad. I love a good thunderstorm - and the more thunder and lightening, the better! Thanks, Dad!!

He and my Mom have lived lives of service to others. Never bragging, never publicizing what they've done. My Dad is a very private person and keeps his good deeds to himself - between he and his God. But I've watched my whole life - more than half a century now. And I hope I've learned well. He's still teaching and I'd like to think I'm still paying attention!

Happy Father's Day to my Dad. He and my Mom were my first best gifts from the Lord. Called me blessed!

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4 NIV
