For My Father On His Birthday

Dearest Daddy~

I thank God again and again for giving you to me as my father. You are a wonderful example to me in so many ways. You love God with an passion and devotion that is evident. You love His Word to such a degree that I am ashamed of my own luke-warmness. You pursue excellence and urge us all to do the same.

I am so thankful for your leadership in our family. In the past few years, you have truly become our priest, prophet, protector and provider. You are to me a counselor, friend, and protector, and I cannot imagine life without your humor and “weirdocities”:)

Thank you for your faithful prayers for me, and your constant support and encouragement in all that I attempt to do.

“For you know how, like a father with his children, we exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory.” 1 Thess. 2:11-12

I Love You!

Your daughter,

What a beautiful post! I know your parents are so proud of you - 'there is no greater joy than to know that my children walk in the truth'!

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
