Giving Thanks for Fathers

Today, on this Father’s Day, I give thanks to God for the fathers in my life. I know you are doing the same. This is my thanks.

I give thanks for my Pastor Dad, Mark David. From reading bedtime stories to preaching sermons… From coaching soccer to driving our family on vacation…

For these things, for all these reasons and more, I give thanks for Dad. I give thanks for his love and dedication to his family. I give thanks for all that he is, and all that I am – because of him.

I give thanks for my handy Father-in-Law, Michael Alan. From fixing pipes to working at home, school, and church… From detailed, careful work to helping any project at any time…

For these things, for all these reasons and more, I give thanks for my Father-in-Law. I give thanks for his tireless work and dedication to his family. I give thanks for all that he is, and all that my husband is – because of him.

And I give thanks for Andy and my Grandfathers. It is these men who raised our fathers who raised us. They brought their sons (and daughters) to the baptismal font and taught the Christian faith. I give thanks for this heritage of faith that they passed down.

 I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 1 Corinthians 1:4
