Father's Day Weekend
Man, this day crept up on me. June is FLYING by and I thought I had another week but NOPE... the calendar does not lie! HA HA
As a mother, wife, and daughter... Father's Day is pretty deep. There is the whole aspect of my Father's (and I have two) and then there is my husband. I will start with him.
My precious husband has a precious daughter, whom I love and admire, sweet Jennifer. There was a time when he wasn't there as a father for her. It breaks his heart. And that breaks mine. God is so generous in how He can grow us, change us, transform us. Don would do anything to go back and be who he is now to her. But he can't. All he can do is be her father now. And he is. And she, being the beautiful daughter of the King that she is, has forgiven him and embraced him and their relationship today makes my heart happy. It is sweet and beautiful. Just like both of them. And now she has two children who get to know his love as well. We just saw them this weekend and sweet little Hannah would come over and turn around to sit in her Poppie's lap. Precious. Precious... the way she would look at him. Love. Redemption. Just like what we are offered from our heavenly Father.
Happy Father's Day Honey. You amaze me with your love. You inspire me with your love. Your love is a beautiful strength that binds us all together. I love you so much. xoxoxoxoxo
Life can be messy. It is full of pain, twists, turns. It is full of floods and lion's dens and gardens of Eden. But God is the same as He was yesterday and He often brings beauty up out of ashes. That is what leads me to having two dad's.
This Father's Day, I will be very saturated in the Father's love as I remember and celebrate these men. His hand is on each of them. His love comes to us through all of them. Men are so very important in the family. Mother's can get so much of the hoopla... but men... good men... are a major part of the foundation. And when a man's eyes are on the Lord, his family will reap many blessings.
"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the paths of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper." Psalm 1:1-3~
I love all of you... so very much. Happy Father's Day. :0)
