The door opens and he walks in after a long day of work. From the other room I can I hear the scampering of little feet rushing to the door with squeals of delight to be the first one in Daddy's arms. Daddy is home!

When talking with my older children, I often hear them say, "Let's see what Dad thinks" because they trust in his wisdom.

Even today, when seeking advice, one of the first people I call is my dad.

There is something about our fathers. Something about knowing they are there to protect us, guide us and provide for us.

Something about feeling protected by their strength...

I am so thankful for the two Godly men the Lord has put into my life- my father and my husband. So thankful for their example and so thankful for their love. So thankful for the times they have lifted me up and carried me through some of the most difficult times of my life. So thankful for their faith. I couldn't imagine my life without them.

While some of us may not have grown up with these type of earthly fathers, we all have access to our heavenly Father. He is there waiting, right now, with open arms ~ready to carry you through.

 “And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” 
2 Corinthians 6:18
