Happy Belated Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day, Dad! Sorry, this is a couple days late!

I'm so thankful for our dad. He has to get up at 4:30 A. M. every morning
 on the week days and work until 3 in the afternoon.
Dad enjoys working hard. He loves to help and bless others. At a gathering,
You can often find him walking around with a broom and dust pan
or a dust mop. If he's not doing that, he's probably playing with little
children or talking with someone. He's a talker-I guess that's where
I get it from! Ha! Ha!
Dad loves the Lord so much and he enjoys blessing us. Sometimes
not a special occasion he'll take Mom out to dinner, he's teaching
me how to drive, he buys us soda from the gas station, he likes
to go for rides sometimes just to go somewhere (so do I!), he'll
take Chloe somewhere for a short time to let her explore,
he'll read through the Bible with us and then lead us in
intercessory prayer, sometimes he'll bring Mom home a
rose unexpectedly (sometimes one for each of us!),
he loves to give, he likes to get projects accomplished,
I could go on and on. I love you so much, Dad! I'm so grateful
for you and for your support in Annah and me saving our
hearts and bodies for our husband. And I am so looking
forward to that special day (Lord willing) when you'll
take my arm and hand in yours and walk me down the
aisle to the man we've prayed for, you'll give me to him
with your full blessing. And I can't wait for the day when
(Lord willing) you and Mom  will come to visit my husband
and me in the hospital and we'll present to you our very
first child! I'm praying that God will bring this about
in our lives and hope it's a time of rejoicing for you

"Remove not the ancient landmark,
which your fathers have set."
Proverbs 22:28


  1. What a sweet tribute to your father, who sounds like a really great man! I'm sure he's very proud of you, as you clearly are of him. :-)

  2. Hello!

    I'm a frequent reader, but had never commented until now. I was so moved by your sweet post! I'm sure your father loves you as much as you love him. Nothing makes this old woman happier than to see a lovely young lady have such Christian convictions of keeping pure until they are called to marry. What a blessing you are to your parents! I pray the LORD gives you a good and Godly husband. What do you think of the Arndt boys?

  3. Thank you! We appreciate your prayer for the future. To be honest, I'm not sure what I think of the gentlemen you mentioned. But anyone in that category must speak with Dad if he wants to get to know me or my sister. My sister and I are all for Dad being the one to evaluate "him" first.
