#1 Dad

As Father's Day approaches, I am listening to Family Life Radio. John Maxwell is giving honor to his father in front of a huge crowd and tears are streaming down my face as John gives tribute to his father for  what his dad taught him.

I am thinking of my own father who passed away at an early age of 52 years. I miss him so much. My dad taught me the song "What A Friend we Have In Jesus." I want to say Happy Father's Day to my dad - I love you Dad and I miss you very much.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today -have a blessed day! Gail
