Happy Happy Happy BIRTHDAY DAD!

That’s right y’all! It’s the greatest day of the entire year…. :D It’s my Dad’s birthday! Though I am pretty sure I could write a sonnet about my Dad, words really aren’t adequate to describe him, or how thankful we are for the years the Lord has given him, or how much he daily sacrifices for his family! And though I could post a single picture, I think a dozen or so would be more fitting! ;] I will leave you with the top 10 facts about my dad & picture to prove it! Druuuummmm roll pleeeeaaaassssssee…..

Dad's bday -2

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish….”
Psalm 1


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
