Birthday Wishes AND I'm A Guest At Nina's Blog

Today is the birthday of a wonderful man. . .my dad.

* * * * *

A Dad is a person
Who is loving and kind,
And often he knows
What you have on your mind.
He's someone who listens,
suggests, and defends
A Dad can be one
of your very best friend's;
He's thankful for your triumphs,
but when things go wrong,
A Dad can be patient
and helpful and strong.
In all that you do,
a Dad's love plays a part
There's always a place for him
deep in your heart
And each year that passes,
you're even more glad,
More grateful and proud
just to call him your Dad!
Thank you, Dad. . .
for listening and caring,
for giving and sharing,
but especially for just being YOU!


Happy Birthday to a man greatly admired!
I love you, Dad!

Plus, the lovely Nina at
asked me to be a guest on her beautiful blog.
Her blog is full of her artistic abilities with a camera - she takes very pretty photos!
She loves Jesus and always has a kind word to say.
Today I am sharing a simply sweet craft that ALL of us can do
and it would make a charming, thoughtful gift.
I hope you come by Nina's blog for a visit, dear friends!

Stephanie, how BLESSED you are to have a dad who loves you and who you love. I never had that. My father abandoned the family when I was 6 months old. I never saw or heard from him. But I have prayed for him and have forgiven him. That was very liberating for me. Maybe he and I will see each other in Heaven and love each other then.
