Happy Happy Birthday DAD ❥

Yep, that right, it’s my Dad’s birthday today! :) My Dad, hyper-entrepreneur{hyper may be putting it lightly!}, Texan at heart{finally a Texan by law a little over 10 months ago!}, professional second generation seamster{in case y’all didn’t know, that’s the male version of a seamstress. ;) and if I had pictures I would show you the masterpieces he has upholstered in his lifetime.}, avid garage saler{always scouting out good deals to turn over. he is what I like to call a professional “picker”}, hosts the best bible studies ;), master of the grill{he can grill a steak like non-other}, genius when it comes to solving “big family” dilemmas{and if you don’t know what I am talking about it’s because you aren’t part of a big family ;)}, and he just keeps on getting better looking with age! :)

If you know my Dad, you know that he has a spectacular sense of humor and he has a fantastic way of keeping things extremely lively & us on our toes! His ability to maintain a rational level of peace and stability with a house full of women is beyond brilliant and his sense of adventure always gives way for excitement{this would explain the first picture below where he decided it would be great to pose like a Greek god… or was it a cherub?! ;)} All this to say, I really really really ❥ my dad! :) So extremely thankful for the 49 years of life the Lord has given him! :)

Happy Birthday Dad! Beyond blessed to have you as my father!! :)

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”’
Numbers 6:24-26

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. Happy Birthday DAD!
    So thankful to The Lord for you!!!

    “Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
    Psalms 103:2-5

    “But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
    I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.” Psalm 13:5-6

  3. I commented back during your Dad’s health issues, and mentioned that I understand the fear of loosing a father. I also understand what it is like to be so thankful to have him for yet another year. So glad for you.

    1. Yes! When you have lost someone or come close to loosing someone you love, you come to realize a little better what a tremendous blessing & miracle each new year or even day of life is. God is good and I am so thankful that He has brought my Dad through another year! Psalm 107:1-2
