Today’s my dad’s birthday, and so before I start my regular routine of trying to call him and leaving voice-mails.
, I just wanted to put this out here where I know he’ll see it:
Happy Birthday, Dad!
Today’s post then is a tribute to my dad. Here are a few things I appreciate about him: First of all, I am proud to be your son. Again and again, I meet people who know you, who’ve spent time with you, worked with you, and without fail, they tell me you are a man of integrity.
I appreciate the fact that you’ve made an intentional effort to express your love to all of us, even if you sometimes have a hard time putting it into words. I appreciate the way you love and honor my mom. Thank you. You taught me to look a person in the eye when talking to him and the value of a firm foundation in a family. You and mom gave me a rich spiritual heritage that has already show up in my children. Well, that’s it for now. Love, your son.
“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!” Psalm 127:3-5
Love you dad. You are the best.
