Tuesday is the Birthday of a very special man. Let me tell you a little bit about him. He was born to a large, humble family, they didn't have alot of money but had alot of love and laughter.
This man was full of mischief and got into his share of trouble- nothing serious just pranks. He worked on his family farm and eventually him and his brother bought the farm and worked it to provide for his own family.
Times changed and the highway came through the farm so this man had to get a different job- he started working for the road commission. He worked some very long hours when the roads got bad, but never complained. He was a very hard working man and was always thankful to have a job.
More importantly, this man had a wife and 4 children. He was an incredible father and example to his children of what it meant to love the Lord and teach your children. This man was a strict father, but very loving. The children never had curfews or lots of rules. They just knew right from wrong and most importantly didn't want to let down their parents.
I can tell you all this because I am one of those children. I'm speaking of my father. It's his 77th birthday tomorrow. As you can tell I'm very proud of my dad. The Lord blessed me in a huge way by giving me the family I have.
I really can't say enough about my dad- I'm so very proud to have him for my dad.
I love you very much!
