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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Cobbler is one of hubby’s favorites and since I had strawberries in the fridge,ย 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 mealย hubby said was great ๐Ÿ™‚Orange sunsetย  After dinner we watched the move “Courageous” on TV.ย Since it is father’s day, it ย is important to recognize, as the movie “Courageous” says, that good God basedย 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 Iย areย blessed with our own child we can join those of you who put the Lord first inย your families and lead by a Godly example. I wish you all (myย Dad too) a very Happy Father’s Day!

    Hallmark advertises holidays to be something so special that most families cannot live up to those expectations. I think we all have to do what you chose to do – enjoying each day by thinking positive and doing the best with what you have at the time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the movie “Courageous!!” We did a drama to that song this year!! So now be courageous, and believe that God can give you the desires of your heart! He is a good God, and I pray He answers soon!!
