I hope you all had a wonderful Father’s Day with your families. It is so precious to be able to share such times together.
But I also recognize that many families are not together, for so many different reasons. Today I thought a lot about the fathers and sons serving in Iraq and other places. How painful that must be.
So to any of you whose day was sad or bittersweet – can I give you a cyber hug?
Life here is hard. Jesus warned us it would be. But try, I know it is hard, but try to take heart – He has over come the world!!! And one day, we will be with our Heavenly Father and we will be in total peace.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
On a lighter note…
It appears that my son is far more generous with our family’s cash than I am.
For Father’s Day I didn’t spend a bunch of money on my husband Phil. (But to be fair, I also told him not to spend any money on me for Mother’s Day.) So I got a mug made up with a photo of Jackson and Phil, plus Jackson had made him countless presents. I thought that was sufficient. (I also knew that Phil is planning to treat himself and his Dad to a golf game. That seemed like enough money spent to me.)
Well, apparently Jackson had been asking Phil what he wanted for Father’s Day. My husband had evidently been telling him that he wanted a new golf club. (I knew nothing about this.)
So this morning, as Phil opened the card that Jackson made at Sunday School, I got quite a shock. “Phil read it out loud,” I suggested, thinking it would be something simple like Happy Father’s Day.
Phil read, “Happy Father’s Day! I love you and I will give you a golf club for Father’s Day.”
Beaming about his generosity, Jackson proudly announced that he got his teacher to write it for him.
Sheesh – now how much is that gonna cost?!?
But man, did Phil and I have a good chuckle!
