What a Perfect Example

On this Father's Day, I was making pancakes for my crew, the blueberry kind... since the season is almost in full swing, and I was thinking about a Father's Day card. I was negligent in sending my dad a card on time... it went out in the mail yesterday. I hadn't bought my husband a Father's Day card... but I had one left over from last year that I never gave to him. My mind started to wander. It occurred to me that I thank my own dad for all of the ways that he has been a dad to me. I have thanked and did thank my husband this morning for being a dad to our boys. I don't ever recall thanking my Heavenly Father for being the PERFECT DAD to me.

Later this morning, as some of my family sat down to eat the blueberry pancakes I thanked God for the beautiful day, the opportunity to eat wonderful food that HE had provided, and thanked HIM for being the PERFECT DAD to all humanity, and wished HIM a happy FATHER'S DAY.

Happy Father's Day to all of the wonderful fathers in my life!

Grandchildren are the crown of old men,
And the glory of sons is their fathers.
Prov 17:6
