What do you get dad?

Tomorrow is Father’s Day. I often struggle on these holidays because I never know what to get my father. Shopping for him is about impossible. He is very content and needs nothing. I guess that is a great thing. Maybe the best thing I could give him doesn’t cost anything. Maybe it is to let him know how I feel about him. Since he gets these blogs…I thought I’d do it right here. If you haven’t told your father what he means to you…maybe this will remind you. (Sorry if this is too mushy for all of you – but I want everyone to know how great of a dad I have)

Dad,

I don’t often say things like this to you, but felt compelled to tell you what you mean to me. You are an inspiring person to me. Your work ethic goes far beyond anyone I have ever met. No matter how much you had to do…I never once heard you complain about it. Your dedication to God is something I hope to attain in my life. We always joked about you being a “rock” because your arms were so big and strong. But as I have watched you throughout the years – you have been a rock in so many ways.

You are always available for advice when I am having car problems or need advice. Your relationship with Jesus is SOLID. Your prayer life is motivating to me and yet humbling at the same time. You are the rock of our family and always dependable. You watched me play little league games when I couldn’t throw a strike to save my life and came to my track and field events when I had no chance of winning the race. You are truly a hero to me both in ministry and in life. I believe that you have affected far more people than you can imagine for God. You may not feel that you have done all that you can do, but I believe you have impacted more than you can realize through all the disciples you helped raise!

No verse is more challenging to me and yet fits your life than I Timothy 4:12b “…set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” You have done that for me and for the hundreds of people who have watched your life through the years. This Father’s Day I want you to know that you have been a great father and that I love you very much.

Thank you for everything!

Your son,
Timotheus (Thank God Mom was reading the NIV)
