Some thoughts about my Dad...
There was a time I could not wait to be on my own. Now I often long for the day when I was just a kid and all the decisions rested on his shoulders. Every passing year reminds me of the very precious gifts God has given me in my life, my parents being two of the most special. As I look at my own children I am mindful of my shortcomings and my father seems even greater in comparison. As the days come and go, many things change, but the grateful heart of this son only grows over time... Thanks Dad!

Thank you for this post, Pastor Peters. My Dad was called to Glory a year and a month ago and it is the true faith in Christ that we shared that gives me the assurance that we will meet again soon. Whenever we sing "the angels and archangels and all the company of heaven" I visualize him there. Today We learned that I could wish our youngest son a "Happy Father's Day!" He and his wife are expecting their first in February. Joyous news, for sure!
