Proverbs 22:6 (ESV)
Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
This will be my 17th year without you but then I can still feel your presence and example to this day. I hope that you would be REALLY PROUD of me for WHAT and WHO I am now. I am extremely blessed to have a dad like you. I am extremely proud to carry your name.
My brothers and I would not be the people we are today without your guiding hands. We have achieved our dreams because of the challenges and the encouragement that you always took the time to give us. With all the amazing things you did for us the best thing that you did for us was to train us in the way of the Lord. I want to thank you for the example you were to pray for those around us, be faithful to church, to carry our Bible, and how to love my wife and family.
God truly blessed me with the best dad. That day in Dec of 1999 was one of the hardest of my life when I had to say good bye for a while. You were my best friend and I wasn’t ready to say good bye. But as you told me in the final lesson you taught me is that “God is never early, and never late”.
Dad on this Father’s day enjoy your day with our heavenly father and know that my love for you will never fade. I strive every day to be the man you taught me to be through your example.
Happy Father’s Day Dad, I love YOU! Ron Jr
Dear Lord, we thank You today for our fathers. We pray that we would learn from them the things they teach us. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
