to all the wonderful dads out there!


F is for the faithfulness He shows me
A for His amazing, awesome care
T for truth in tenderness He taught me
H for heart that hears my humble prayer
E is for eternal life He gave me
R is for His righteousness I wear

Put them all together, they spell F~A~T~H~E~R
A God of Love! The Only One!


F is for the faith in God he taught well
A for warm affection, always there.
T is for together times of travel
H is for our happy home with prayer
E is for his energy unfailing
R is the respect he showed each one

Put them all together, they spell F~A~T~H~E~R!
A man of love! He’s Number One!

Staggering! This blog looks well-founded like my prehistoric identical! It's on a absolutely unusual subject-matter but it has bonny much the uniform layout and design. Superlative choice of colors!
