Happy Father's Day
A huge shout out to all the Dads who tirelessly model the love the Father has for us. May you all have a blessed day being celebrated.
My Earthly Dad
With these three words,
"Dear Heavenly Father,"
I begin my every prayer,
But the man I see
While on bended knee
Is always my earthly dad.
He is the image
Of the Father divine
Reflecting the nature of God,
For his love and care
And the faith he shared
Pointed me to my Father above.
