We Want To Be Just Like You, Daddy!



"...he who works for the honor of the
One who sent him is a man of truth..."
John 7:18
"The man of integrity walks securely..."
Proverbs 10:9
"...love the LORD your God, walk in all His ways, to obey His commands, to hold fast to Him and to serve Him with all your heart and all your soul."
Joshua 22:5
Jim - Happy Father's Day!
We love you deeply.
We honor you in our hearts always.
We respect you instrinsically.
You are the best daddy our children could have.
As I watched them last night both snuggled up on your lap as we watched a movie, I thought "That's just how it should be." Our cherubs snuggled up on daddy's lap. Safe, secure, content.
Thank you for your love and devotion to God, to His truth and to us.
Happy Father's Day!
I Want To Be Just Like You - by Phillips, Craig & Dean
He climbs in my lap for a goodnight hug
He calls me Dad and I call him Bub
With his faded old pillow and a bear named Pooh
He snuggles up close and says, "I want to be like you"
I tuck him in bed and I kiss him goodnight
Trippin' over the toys as I turn out the light
And I whisper a prayer that someday he'll see
He's got a father in God 'cause he's seen Jesus in me
Lord, I want to be just like You
'Cause he wants to be just like me
I want to be a holy example
For his innocent eyes to see
Help me be a living Bible, Lord
That my little boy can read
I want to be just like You
'Cause he wants to be like me
Got to admit I've got so far to go
Make so many mistakes and I'm sure that You know
Sometimes it seems no matter how hard I try
With all the pressures in life I just can't get it all right
But I'm trying so hard to learn from the best
Being patient and kind, filled with Your tenderness
'Cause I know that he'll learn from the things that he sees
And the Jesus he finds will be the Jesus in me
Right now from where he stands I may seem mighty tall
But it's only 'cause I'm learning from the best Father of them all


Mark Harris - Find Your Wings
It's only for a moment you are mine to hold
The plans that heaven has for you will all too soon unfold
So many different prayers I'll pray for all that you might do
But most of all I'll want to know
you're walking in the truth
And If I never told you I want you to know
As I watch you grow
I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings
May passion be the wind
That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong
Guide you on your way
May there be many moments that make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories
It's not living if you don't reach for the sky
I'll have tears as you take off but I'll cheer as you fly
"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!"
1 John 3:1

Honey, Thank you for the beautiful tribute. You are amazing! You and the kids are my whole world, and I love and cherish all of you dearly.

Thank you, Jesus, for giving me more than I could ever dream a family could be, and truly help me to be more like You, for Your sake, and for theirs.
