Father’s Day

Tomorrow is Father’s Day!

It got me thinking about family and how important they are to me.  I’ve been married to the same man for a little over 47.5 years.  We raised our 2 sons and several foster kids, and now our 3 girls.  Seems like a long time and yet it is amazing how fast much of my life has passed.

“As sands through the hourglass – so are the Days of Our Lives”

That is a direct quote from an old but famous soap opera – but I can still hear MacDonald Carey saying those words on TV.   A dramatic introduction to an ongoing storyline.   Lust, murder, lies.  A daily buffet of the woes of the world.

That simple introduction was profound – (and also a favorite Blog quote)  

My life hasn’t been as dramatic as a soap opera but its been an ongoing storyline — one that belongs to me and me alone.   Its a story that touches many people as my life crosses their path.  Some people are major players; some supporting actors; and some play only bit parts and cameo roles as my story unfolds.  Some scenes are inspiring; some wasted; some happy; some sad.   But the constant thread is always family.

Being a Christian, I have my natural family and I have my heavenly family.  I’m a part of the family of God.  Accepted in and adopted into the Father’s family.  

Wooed by the Holy Spirit I was introduced to Jesus and came to love Him with all my heart.  Because of my love for Him I was accepted and because of Him I belong to an even bigger family — an eternal family.  I have brothers and sisters throughout the world.  Strangers I am bound to by a common thread — the thread of  knowing Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and Lord.

Tomorrow I will call my Daddy and tell him how much I love him — even though he knows it without me saying it.  Just like my Heavenly Father knows that I love Him.  The only thing is — it can NEVER be said enough.

Father I love you!
