Tomorrow would have been my dad’s 100th birthday, had he not passed away last year.
I miss him, but I have some really great memories!
When I was a little girl, I helped him in his garden. We’d pull out carrots, wash the dirt off with a garden hose, munch on them and have talks.
In college, after a particularly hard day, I walked home (it was only a mile from campus) to find him working in his garden. He pulled out two carrots, washed them off- we munched and talked about life.
He always made things better. He always had wise words for me. He was trustworthy and faithful. A man of integrity.
I’m so grateful for his godly example. I’m thankful he loved me and his family well. I couldn’t have had a better earthly father, but I know my Heavenly Father loves me even more, even better than my dad ever could.
As much as I’d like to believe my dad hung the moon, our earthly fathers can never be perfect, but our Heavenly Father always is. He is trustworthy and will never let us down. What a great reason to put your faith in Him today.!
