~Happy Father's Day!~

"How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers."

~Psalm 1:1-3~

Dear readers,
As we approach yet another Father's Day, I've begun to ponder the many attributes of my Dad for which I am truly grateful, and for which I highly admire in him. I should like to take a moment to share a few of these qualities with you, in his honor. :)

My Dad is a man of God. He loves the Lord greatly and strives to please Him in all he does. He desires to share his love for the Lord with us, his children.

My Dad is a man of character. He is a hard worker and he has a servants heart. He looks out for the interests of others and goes out of his way to see that their needs are met.

My Dad is a good provider. He faithfully goes to work each day even when one might feel like doing otherwise.

My Dad is a good protector. He carefully thinks through scenarios and gives advice and cautions, as he sees them, so that we are kept safe from harm.

My Dad is loyal. I am SO thankful for my parents love for each other and their wonderful example in being faithful to one another!

My Dad is a gentleman. :) He is often opening a door when needed, or offering to carry something that is heavy etc.

And the list could certainly go on! ;) I am SO blessed to have such a WONDERFUL father...I love you Dad!!! <3

May God richly bless you all this Father's Day, as you seek to bless your father (and grandfather's) this year! :)

Love in Christ,
~Chloe~ :)

A righteous man who walks in his integrity--"
