Happy Father's Day!

 I read a story @ A Pause on the Path that Shanda wrote about a situation when she was younger that made her Daddy cry. It brought memories of my own Daddy flooding back into my mind and brought tears to my own eyes.  I saw my Daddy cry very few times.  Don't you agree with me....that to see a man cry....just makes him more of a man?!?!  Pappy and I got married on Friday night and when we returned on Sunday afternoon, we went back to my house to get my clothes.  As we left, my Daddy stood on the porch and cried.  I can still see him standing there and it makes my heart ache.  I was being torn between the two earthly men that I loved more than anything.  Of course....I knew God had brought Pappy and me together....but it was very difficult to leave my Daddy and Momma!!!

To my precious Daddy....
I was so very blessed to have you as my Daddy.  
I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt how you felt about me and never once did I feel unloved!  
You worked so hard and provided and protected.
Like I've mentioned before....
"as old as I am, I still miss my Daddy sometimes"!!!

And....Happy Father's Day to my sweet hubby!!!
Pappy....although we tell each other many times a day thru phone calls and text messages and face to face....I can't say it enough....
I you with all my !!!
You are my rock!!!

My Daddy loved the old time, Southern gospel songs.
I can remember as a little girl listening to him play the old LP's of The Statesmen.  And, since they say that most girls marry men like their Daddy's....
it's no wonder how much Pappy LOVES music, too!!!

This is one of my favorite old gospel hymns.  
I can't help but wonder what kind of grand and glorious music my Daddy must be listening to in heaven!!!

I dedicate this to my Daddy and Pappy!!!

Happy Father's Day!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
