A few words from Dr. Bill:
Many things are going on in the month of June. We want to remember Flag Day on June 14 and be sure to display our Nations flag. We will be having Vacation Bible School, “Galactic Starveyors”, 11-15 from 5:30-8pm, and remember that we do have church services each week on Sunday morning and night, also Wednesday evening and many mission activities are going on for us to get involved in. We have great opportunities for us to get involved and share the love of Jesus with the community and with each other.
This month on the 18th is Father’s day, and I would like to wish all the Fathers a very special day. Children, tell your Father how much you love and appreciate him. Do something special with him. Tell him that you love him. Take time to listen and learn from him each day and value the advice he gives you. You will be glad that you did.
I was thinking of all the things that make up a Father and I ran across this poem about what makes a Dad. I would like to share it with you and see if this is true.
What Makes a Dad
God took the strength of a mountain, The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun, The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature, The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages, The power of the eagle’s flight,
The joy of a morning in spring, The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity, The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities, When there was nothing more to add, He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it … Dad
I believe this sums it all up. I cannot think of any other words that best describe what a Father is or should be. I do not have my earthly Father with me, but he is in heaven. I am so blessed to have my heavenly Father who nurtures and loves me beyond all expectation. I am eternally thankful for His care and protection each day I live. Without my heavenly Farther, I would be a horrible wreck with no future or hope in those things He has given to me and other believers.
Today, I am thankful for what my earthly Father has instilled within me and I am grateful to what my heavenly Father continues to reconstruct within my soul. I am most of all truly thankful for the Grace of God through Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior who makes me whole in all areas of life.
As always, may God write the record of His love upon your hearts and lives through Christ Jesus our Lord. God’s blessings of love, laughter, and eternal security to you all.
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!!!
As always, may God write the record of His love upon your hearts and lives through Christ Jesus. God bless each of you and have a great month.
God bless you all.
