Thankful Thursday- My Fathers Eyes


Happy Thankful Thursday everyone, Laurie has chosen a great theme this week in honor of Father's Day. Our earthly fathers do deserve to be honored, and I am glad there is a day set aside just for them. But, what about our heavenly Father? He deserves much more than we give Him, He deserves to be honored, and celebrated everyday. We should give Him our very best everyday, we should unfold our lives to Him each new day as a present from our heart to His. Not just on Easter, and Christmas, but every single day. Celebrate Him, praise Him, and love Him. I am so very grateful to have my earthly father in my life, after all the years without him, or his love in my life, God blessed me by bringing him into my life, and saving his soul, at the end of last year. My earthly father will be at church with me on Sunday night, we are celebrating our fathers with a pie and ice cream social. I am so looking forward to this, it will be the first fathers day that my father has spent with me since I was born. Praise God for His kindness to me. I will never forget the facts of my life, and I choose to give glory, and honor where it belongs. It belongs to my heavenly Father, always. My heavenly Father created me, and wanted me. He has always loved me, cared for me, watched closely over me, wiped my endless tears from my eyes, shared laughter with me, carried me and my burdens, cheered on my successes, and forgave my failures. He saved my life from the very beginning of my life, as I was in the womb. So many times since then, He has saved my life. He walks with me, and talks with me daily. He gives me endless gifts everyday, such as: strength, peace, comfort, joy, acceptance, and unending love. I love Him, I love Him, I love my Father. I pray that when people look at me, they see my Father. He is why I am here, He is my life. Thank You my precious Father. Happy Fathers Day, from Your daughter Denise.

Praise God that we have a Father that never leaves us or forsakes us. His love is unconditional and He always has time for us. I never knew my Dad, only met him for the first time 5 years ago, but God my Father had already filled that void that was in my heart. I am proud to be called His daughter! -Happy TT Denise - Laurie
