Happy Father’s Day!

Today, we celebrate the dads out there, and I especially want to wish a very Happy Father’s Day to two very special ones in my life.

First, my own dad, who has been an amazing father to me.  He’s famous for giving me just the right advice at just the right time, and he’s always supported me in whatever I do.  He attended my 4-H fairs and competitions, never missed a performance of my high school showchoir {and was the first to give us a standing ovation}, and stood by me when I traded the security of a job in the public school system for a less stable career as a professional ballroom dancer.  We have a lot in common; our mutual love for the beach is just the tip of the iceberg.  When I was preparing to get married, he kept reminding me that I had promised as a little girl never to move out and leave him, and he threatened to sit at his own table in the corner at the reception, although when the day came, he was a perfect gentleman.  Dad, thanks for always being on my side and for showing me what a godly husband and father really is.

And, Happy Father’s Day to my best friend, husband, and dance partner, who is the best father to our Little Crafter that I could ever have asked for.  I’m so thankful to have him in my life, and so glad that LC has him to look up to. 
Here’s LC’s tribute to his daddy:

I want to leave you with the lyrics to the song I chose for the dance I did with my dad at my wedding {10 yrs ago!!}  It’s called “More Than You’ll Ever Know” by Watermark…it’s not specifically written for fathers, but the words always make me think of my dad and the relationship we have.

Something brought you to my mind today
I thought about the funny ways you make me laugh
And yet I feel like it’s okay to cry with you
Something about just being with you
When I leave I feel like I’ve been near God
And that’s the way it ought to be…

‘Cause you’ve been more than a friend to me
You fight off my enemies
‘Cause you’ve spoken the Truth over my life
And you’ll never know what it means to me
Just to know you’ve been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
More than you’ll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you’ll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah

You had faith, when I had none
You prayed God would bring me a brand new song
When I didn’t think I could find the strength to sing
And all the while I’m hoping that I’ll
Do the kind of praying for you that you’ve done for me
And that’s the way it ought to be…

Happy Father’s Day, Dads!
