Happy Father's Day

We knew this would be a hard day. .
The loss of my earthly father has been difficult. .
and unpredictable as to what makes it harder. .
and what it makes it easier.
This day. .
my family would appreciate the extra prayers for comfort!

But, in celebrating the day of recognition for the father of my children. .
ALL of my children. .
I HAD to share the card that Cami made at preschool for her dad.
We're not really sure what it means. .
BUT. .
I had to show Jeremy early. .
SO. .
he wouldn't laugh out loud when she proudly hands it to him,
thus shattering all her excitement!!
I couldn't get the photo turned right. .but you can get the idea.

So today, as my heart cries for my earthly dad. .
I am reminded that my Heavenly Father has got my family in the palm of His hand. .
comforting us and growing us in spirit!

Romans 8:14-15
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. So you should not be like cowering, fearful slaves. You should behave instead like God's very own children, adopted into his family--calling him "Father, dear Father."

Happy Father's Day!
