A Special Father's Day

Chad, this Sunday, you will celebrate your first Father’s Day.  What a blessing to have David as part of your family and ours.  We have loved watching you grow in your love for him.  Whether you are working in the yard, playing, praying before meals, talking, reading, taking him to be fitted for his tux, hugging, or having family prayers and devotions, you have embraced being a father. 

Along with the fun times, you are also accepting the responsibilities of being a father.  With your dad, PaPa, and Granddaddy, as well as others, you have had wonderful role models of what it looks like to be a godly father.  In the days and years to come, may the way you love the Lord, trust Him, obey Him, and live for Him lead David to want to do the same.

 Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.
Psalm 127:3

Train a child in the way he should go,
    and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Proverbs 22:6

Along  with Joshua,  I pray that you too will continue to say and live,
“But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
Joshua 24:15
