My Father, My Dad

My God is

strong

creative

resourceful

capable

fun

kind

generous 

loving

and more.


How did I learn these things?


By watching my dad.





I'm blessed to read the Word, pray to my Heavenly Father and experience Him in my life to know these things as well.  But it was my dad who taught me first by living well. 




And the longer I live, the more I realize how much like Him, he is.



holy experience

God's still working on me

my sister's love

kittens

calves

sheep

time with my nephews

The Thinker's apology

Jesus' disciples, hard-hearted and amazed
