Father's Day

Lord, I just want to thank you for giving me one of the best earthly father,Ricardo, who had gone home to be with You, a little over a year ago. I miss him but I thank You for the wonderful times we shared while he was here. He was a very loving father, who always put his family’s concerns first. He was the one who motivated me to keep writing and drawing pictures when I was little. He would come home for vacations after sailing as a Radio Operator and would bring home lovely stationeries and colorful markers, crayons, and colored pencils. Together with my mom, they were a picture of sweet marriage for 30 something years bonded by Your love.

Thank You Lord for giving me one of the best husbands and father to our child - a man who works so hard without seeking recognition for all the things he does. A man who would trade anything to be there for me and my son. J and I love you daddy!Happy Father's Day!

I want to praise You, O Lord, for You are our best Father from the beginning. You deserve our honor and praise. Thank You for allowing us to be called Your children and we really are! [1John 3:1]. What a privilege! How great to be called Your children “now”, not just sometime in the distant future. You had given us Your best gifts: Your Son, forgiveness and eternal life. Thank You Lord for Your eternal, unconditional love. I love You.

Psalm 68:5 – “Father to the fatherless, defender of widows – this is God, Whose dwelling is holy.”

I’m posting this a few days early since I’m working this weekend. I want to greet all of you dads out there a “Happy Father’s Day”. I wrote this song on February 4, 2004 to praise our Father Who had loved us from the very start. I had sent a couple of songs to a studio just to see how it would turn out when they did the demo tape for me. This was one of the song: “I’m Your Father”. God bless you all!

  1. This is such a beautiful tribute post sweetie. I love the song, and I love you my friend.

  2. This is a beautiful and heartfelt. I love how you pay tribute to earthly father, your husband, and our Most High Father. And the song was just icing on the cake. I love the song. You have such a wonderful gift.

    On another note, I would like to know how to make a slide show like you did with the graphics and music. Did you use your own software and use blogger to upload it?

    I'm sorry you have to work this weekend. But, have a bless one. :)

  3. Such lovely sentiments written here and I'm reflecting on Father's Day and all it means. Your song is impressive! You never cease to amaze me, you precious child of God, you!

    Have a safe weekend. I work every Saturday being that we're in sales.

    Love you!

  4. What a precious acknowledgment dear sister. I enjoyed the slideshow/video.

    Sis, you are always such an incredible gift of encouragement and love on my blog. I came by to tell you that before I take a break from blogging. I look forward to sharing with you again soon.

    Love you.

  5. This was a wonderful post and I hope you print it off to put in your husbands card.

    My dad was incredible when I was growing up. I was sad this year when I mailed the card. It is highly unlikely he will know it is fathers day and he may not even know if I am his daighter. Altzheimers is so cruel!

    Please stop by arise 2 write, I have something there for you.

    Blessings and prayers, andrea
