Genesis 18:19“For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.”(NIV)

Daddy and Papa, it is no accident that God has given you to both of us to be our fathers. In His greater purpose of things, He knew exactly whom we needed. It is in this grand scheme of things that we honor you both. <3 Happy Father’s Day!

Daddy, you have never shied away from your responsibilities as a father and you’ve gone the extra mile to give us the life you think we need. Your discipline, your guidance, your financial prudence weren’t always greeted with a smile when we were younger but it certainly helped me (and my sisters & hopefully, my brothers!) set my sails in life.  Thank you for working really hard. You have illustrated what hardwork and discipline is, and we’ll continue to look up to that very example you have shown us throughout your life. Thank you for all that you do! We love you.

Papa, no words can explain how much you have steered our family in the ways of God and how much value we place on what you do as the leader of our family. You have always been my guiding shoulder and the wind that sets the sails in my life. I thank God that He has given me a father who goes beyond and above what is expected. Your quiet grace and strength, loving leadership, and love for God is worth emulating. I want to take this time to appreciate you for being who you are. Thank you for everything that you’ve done! We love you.
