I got thinking of my dad (pictured), a godly man who went "home" 15 years ago. Every year I buy him a Father's Day card even though he's not close by to give it to him. I write what I would have written were he here, seal the envelope and put it away in a drawer.
I'll post a picture tomorrow, Father's Day, of the card I chose this year.
I praise God for a wonderful dad who taught me what it means to be generous, to be "missions-minded" and to cultivate a life of integrity. Dad was well loved by the Christian community and by civic and business leaders alike.
Today as I prepare to work around the house, cutting grass and spending time, as a father, with our young, adopted boys, I thank God for the family of pilgrim pals who have come alongside me. Thanks for your prayers, for your encouragement, for using this site as a launching pad to intercede for others. Please encourage the friends you communicate with, via your blog, to become part of the Pilgrim Pals family. Give them the username and password if you feel that they would benefit from this.
Enough of my ramblings, beloved friends! Have a wonderful day, resting in the arms of the King!
