Father’s Day…

For the last couple of years while we have been trying to conceive mother’s and father’s days are a bitter sweet thing. We enjoy spending time with our parents, but also have a secret part of our heart that wants this day for us. Not for cards, or gifts, or selfish reasons…. but to know we have been blessed by God with a child. A precious child to raise and love. Now I guess that could be selfish, but I am hoping it is just a desire to be able to be a good parent. So today like the last two years our pups give “daddy” a card, I make hubby breakfast, let him choose what to do (when he is not working or gets off), and we end the day with a dinner of his choice. Tonight it was steak, potatoes, and broccoli… with strawberry cobbler for dessert 🙂 Cobbler is one of hubby’s favorites and since I had strawberries in the fridge, it worked out well. I didn’t have to go to the store for anything as I had everything he wanted already in the freezer, fridge, or cupboard. It was easy prep and the meal hubby said was great 🙂Orange sunset  After dinner we watched the move “Courageous” on TV. Since it is father’s day, it  is important to recognize, as the movie “Courageous” says, that good God based father’s are essential in a family structure. Without them so many kids go astray and are not disciplined or lead to be good people, good leaders, and good citizens. I see this every day in the work I do. There are also father’s out there that are doing a great job leading their families (and mother’s too) where the spouse has died, is ill, etc. So I applaud those fathers today and wish you a special blessing for all your hard work and dedication to the Lord. I only hope when hubby and I are blessed with our own child we can join those of you who put the Lord first in your families and lead by a Godly example. I wish you all (my Dad too) a very Happy Father’s Day!
