I’ve talked a lot about my family in my posts. They are pretty fantastic. Since Father’s Day was not too long ago and I have yet to write a Positive Post about my Father, I will today.
My dad is so cool. My dad laughs a lot. He makes those corny jokes that you can’t help but snicker at. He can lighten the mood when it’s needed. But he knows how to be seriously smart. He challenges his family and causes us to really meditate on things we may usually not think twice about. My dad is also an artist. He can sketch people and construct beautiful furniture, and all of it is crafted with love. My dad also knows how to sing. We haven’t heard him solo much recently, but he’ll put passion and heart into any song about Jesus. The best thing is to walk in on him while he’s listening to the Gaither Vocal Band. He gives a great living room show. 🙂
My dad loves the Lord with all His heart. And with that love comes a distinct mission to teach God’s goodness. He has a reputation that screams teacher. He’s so great at it because he wants people to understand. Dad will come up with all sorts of illustrations and stories so that any age will be able to get excited about Jesus.
He is one of the most multi-talented, gifted, passionate men in the entire world. To support his family, he has made so SOOOOO many sacrifices. I cannot emphasize that enough. My dad has worked hard everyday of my life at a factory making batteries in high heat. He is brilliant, talented, strong, and continues to pour into books during his free time Yet he spends sometimes 12 hours a day doing repetitive motion in that factory at least 5 days a week. He is faithful and determined to be a steady support for his family. I am a result of that faithfulness…
My dad is all that. Yep. He is my hero.
