honouring dad...

On Friday I paid tribute to my today I would like to honour the other four dad's in my immediate family...that would be the father of my three children...and the fathers of my grandchildren.

Children are an inheritance from the LORD.
They are a reward from him.
Psalm 127:3

Today I'd like to leave the dads in my life with a reminder of God's faithfulness...Faithful Father by Brian Doerksen. Whatever your role as dad may require of you...God is faithful!

You may think that it is easy for a renowned worship leader to sing of God's faithfulness...since he likely hasn't encountered hard times in his personal family life. Well, think again! I was so touched by Brian's can read it here...and particularly his challenges as a father to two sons with Fragile X syndrome. What an inspiration he is to all be faithful to the calling of fatherhood.

So to all the dads in my life...Happy Father's Day and I love you all!


  1. That's a lovely tribute to the Dads in your family. In an age where "me" and "I" are so over-used young fathers like these are a shining light.

  2. That is a great mosaic. We are all blessed to have good men in our lives and our daughters. Blessings

  3. Fathers are so important! I enjoyed reading your tribute to the fathers in your own life and also about Brian's story, which I had not heard before.

  4. I hope your family had a wonderful Father's Day celebration Judy!
