Fathers Representing Our Father...


I am thankful for my father and his father and my husband and how he blesses our children.
 They have all been great examples of men striving to live this verse:
But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.  - Joshua 24: 15
They are not perfect but they love the Lord and have
discipled their children to love Him and serve and glorify Him.
 I love this picture of my Dad as a boy and his Daddy.
His name was Hollis.
We called him DaddyHollis.
 How this man loves his boys. 
 I pray that his example of godly living and how he has been seeking God's face their whole life will be an example to them of how to live and serve their families when that time comes for them. 
If of course that is God's path for their lives.
Our fathers can be and are alot like our heavenly Father and point us to Him. 
 As I was thinking about Fathers Day this morning
I thought of this verse and how awesome God is.
I am thankful that there are fathers that draw their
strength from our Abba Father
and share His love with their children.

Isaiah 40: 28-30
 Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
 He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
 Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.

Blessings! Amy
