Happy Birthday, Dad!!!

Today is my sweet Dad's birthday :) I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have him as my father. He's worked so hard to give our family the best he could, all the time. There's never been a moment when I doubted his love or commitment to us. He has always been there to encourage me, laugh with me, keep me in line, and give advice when I asked for it (ok, maybe a few times when I didn't heehee), and to give me a push when I need it. I couldn't have asked for a better Dad, friend, or Grandfather for my children. He truly loves us, and never forgets to show or tell us. He proves to us, by the way he lives his life, that you never give up and you never lose faith. He's accomplished so much in his life, but the greatest of all of them is raising up his children "in the way they should go", and doing it with grace and humility. He's a great man of God, and has helped to change so many lives around him for the better. I'm always proud to say, "This is my Dad".

Happy Birthday, Dad! I love you :)


  1. Sarah, your dad is awesome and if one didn't know that by knowing him they would know if by knowing YOU. Please give him my Happy Birthday to You!!!

  2. Now that I'm crying my ojos out!!! What a beautiful tribute to your dad/grampie. I have to agree - he leaves a Godly legacy - who could ask for more? You guys are such a blessing - thank you for sharing your hearts and love with him. Blessings to you all. Love, Ma

  3. Sarah - Thank you so much for your wonderful,touching and moving "card". It is a blessing having a daughter like you. I am very proud to be called your dad. My heart's desire is to repreent the Lord in all that I do. He has been so wonderful to me. He told my just yesterday how much He loved me and that He is so proud of me. So, thank you for confirming that. I have represented Him accuragely to my family and those I find myself associated with. I committed over 40 years ago to represent my King. He has shared so much that I would need volumes to express the insight the Father has shown me, but for now, I can say with all that's within me, He will never leave me or forsake me. I also commit to you - I will never leave you or forsake you. Love, Dad

  4. K, now I guess we're all crying! :) Thanks my sweet Dad, for all that you said, and for all that you are.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!

    We took the day off from blogging yesterday, but wanted to tell your dad that he is a wonderful father and grandfather. Way to go, Bob. Your daughter is a shining example of your fine upbringing and teaching. We love her with all of our hearts and are very fortunate that she is a part of OUR FAMILY. Thank you very, very much.
