Verse of the day...

3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:3-6)

~Fathers Day~

💕Happy Fathers Day Daddy!💕
I miss you so much! Memories of you flood my mind!
Teaching me how to ride a bike. Singing silly songs. Snowball fights. Fishing trips. Teaching me to tie my shoes. Teaching me to cook scrabbled eggs. Pushing me on the swing. Reading my most favorite poem book of yours to me. Holding my hand. Teaching me to drive. Believing in me more than anyone else. Holding each one of my babies. Singing those same silly songs to them. Playing in p...iles of leaves. Always smiling no matter what was going on in your life. Racing the halls of the hospital in your wheelchair with the boys. Spending your life leaving tons of the best memories ever no matter what you were going through! Even the last months of your life trapped in a hospital in pain... I have wonderful happy memories with you! All the laughing we did! You had the best laugh ever!
My first love... my best friend... my daddy!💕

And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)
