This Father's Day, I am praying for the ones who have lost their Dad, including my husband and 2 of my sister-in-laws, and the ones who never had a special relationship with their Dad, and the ones who are still praying for their Dad to accept Jesus Christ, and the men who are praying to be a dad.

My Dad. . .
has always been. . .He has always been so much to me, that it is hard to put in words this year. I know that he will not always be. . .here on earth, but I know that
he will always be. (eternal life) (and my Mom will always be with him!)
I cherish the time that I had with Ray as my Father-in-law.
I cherish anytime that I have with my Dad and Mom.
I cherish the times that I get to see my brothers be "Dad".

I cherish all of the time
that I have had
with Jeff as Dad to my children.

I cherish any time
that I get to see
Josh be "Daddy".
He has always been
a wonderful big brother,
(well, since he was almost 4)
and now he is a wonderful
I cherish the time
that I can see
God preparing Jase
to be a Daddy
or a blessing to others
in some way.

Daddy's do special things
for their daughters,
(and other special things
for their sons!)
The special Man
that is my husband,
my children's Dad,
and my grandchildren's

Even if you can not
cherish good memories with your Dad,
I pray that you do know
that you are cherished by
your Heavenly Father!
Happy Father's Day, 2010!
