Tu Papa Tambien (And Your Father Too...)

Happy Father's Day, to all of the Fathers and to the rising generations of Godly young men who are aspiring to be fathers themselves someday...

May we also be thankful on this day to our Heavenly Father. May he continue to raise up men after his own heart who will walk in his statutes. May you all continue to be conformed in the likeness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ until he returns.

Mind you, I don't really have a lot to say because I sort of ended up covering the whole thing on mother's day...so how about a movie (or two)?! Enjoy!

I thank God for all of the wonderful Christian men that have graced my path and been such an influence on me in the absence of my own paternal father. You have my deepest gratitude.

And a special thanks to Keith Kerr for putting up with me in my capricious youth (and yes, I actually talk that way, Keith).

Drink water from your own cistern,flowing water from your own well. Should your springs be scattered abroad, streams of water in the streets? Let them be for yourself alone,and not for strangers with you.Let your fountain be blessed,and rejoice in the wife of your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love. - Proverbs 5:15-19 ESV

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her - Ephesians 5:25 ESV

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. - Ephesians 6:4 ESV

Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. - Colossians 3:19 ESV

Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered. - 1 Peter 3:7 ESV

Soli Deo Gloria,
