My Daddy

Daddy, the Lord didn’t keep you here
Long enough for me to grow up
And get to know you like I wanted
But God knows best.

You left me Mom and 3 brother’s to
Help to guide me along the way.
To help me know you,
Even though the Lord laid you to rest.

I am so thankful for those hours around
The piano in the evenings
When as a family you played
and we all sang together.
I rejoice in the songs that you taught us to sing,
Always praising the Lord our Savior and King.”

Daddy, I missed having you around
You left us so early, but you left;
Us a treasure of memories to be found
In thoughts:
of Hugs, Kisses
and Daily guidance from
God’s Holy Word.

You taught me that building a home
Is not building a house.
It is what is the inside of that house
that is important
Where love abounds is more important
than Earthly wealth or gain;
But that we are to Love Jesus
And make Him Lord of All.

For without His daily guidance where
Would we all be
I would rather have be an orphan.
Than not knowing Jesus
And being A Child of the King

For Father's Day
My 70th birthday.
for church Father's Day brunch...

3 Bullets

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old rifle and three bullets.

So, he decided that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner.

As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away.

Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel, but missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood treel.

As he went further, he saw a large, wild "Tom" turkey in the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining.

A voice spoke to him and said, "Pray first, aim high, and stay focused."

However, at the same time he saw a deer which was a better kill.

He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattlesnake between his legs, about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattlesnake.

Still, the voice said again to him, "I said, 'Pray, Aim high, and Stay focused."

So, the man decided to listen to God's voice.

He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree, and shot the wild turkey.

The bullet bounced off the turkey and killed the deer.

The handle fell off the gun, hit the snake in the head, and killed it. And, when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond.

When he stood up to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer, and a turkey for his family to eat.

The snake, (Satan), was dead simply because the man listened to God.

Moral of the story:
Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God.
