Happy Father’s Day to my daddy Alan who led me to Jesus as we sat together in an orange recliner over twenty-five years ago. No gift could ever be as precious as that, but he has loved me every day of my life and showed it through actions and words. And sometimes by making fun of me. Despite the loss of his own father as a young child he has been the ultimate example of a supportive and committed parent to his four children. He also loves his four grandchildren with the blinding light of a thousand suns.
Happy Father’s Day to the strong and godly men that have been a light in my life: Mr. Gerald who gave me a deeper understanding of God’s character than I ever had before and has always encouraged me. Mark, my father-in-law, who has shown me kindness since Day One and takes advantage of time with his grandchildren to really get to know them.
Happy Father’s Day to the amazing man who is father to my children: Craig Prescott I love you and praise God for your love for your family!
And here is the kids’ poem to their Daddy:
On this very special day
We have a lot to say
We’re thankful for you
And all that you do
You go to work before the sun
We know your office ain’t that fun
Some days you’re the only one
To stay till all the work is done
At home you press on without rest
Helping us to do our best
Mowing, cleaning, cooking too
Sometimes it seems that’s all you do
Clayton loves the star wars play
You do it almost every day!
You often win at Monopoly deal
But you still care about how we feel
You read to us and make us laugh
You give the dog a bubble bath
You teach us lots and lots of facts
You pay the bills and all the tax
Daddy, we love you and we pray
You have a Happy Father’s Day
