This Odie reporting in for another Saturday post. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I am doing well here at home.
Here is a reminder: Father's Day is Tomorrow. You still have time to let the special men in your life know they are appreciated.
I am thankful for the excellent men that God has put in my path. They have impacted my life in many ways. I would not be the person that I am today without their influence!
Today I wanted to take a moment to honor my grandfathers and my father! Faithful readers know I love and appreciate all three of these men more than words can express. They have been my real-life superheroes!
I am the oldest grandchild on both sides. I am extra thankful for the time I have spent with my Papaws. I am blessed to still have all four of my grandparents living today!
My Papaw Eugene Boggs is a fantastic grandfather! He has been my advocate since I was born. Papaw is always making sure that I am well cared for! He cares for his family with all of his heart!
Papaw Danny Morgan is a remarkable grandfather! He is compassionate! God and family are the essential things in his life.
Papaw Danny is happiest when all of his family is together. He is also supportive of our endeavors to work for God. He is always encouraging us to win one more soul.
Now it is time to focus on the man of the hour! I proudly proclaim that Davy Boggs is my Dad. I know God hand-picked him to be my father. This is the first Father's Day I can recall that I have not been with him. I will miss hugging him and loving on him tomorrow. Hopefully, this post can give him a virtual hug for me.
I was thinking about what to write about Dad for this post. I decided to pick words that correspond with the letters of his name. These words reflect some of the great qualities of Dad's character. I admire many splendid things in my Dad's character. It is hard to pick four to focus on today.
D stands for devoted. The definition is: "zealous or ardent in attachment, loyalty, or affection." Dad is wholly devoted to God!
A stands for adventurous. Adventurous is "inclined or willing to engage in adventures; enjoying adventures." Dad is adventurous. He never shies away from each adventure that God leads him to. That is why we have so many great life experiences to share here.
V is for valiant. The definition for Valiant is: "boldly courageous; brave; stout-hearted." My Dad is a Valiant soldier for God.
Y Stands for yielded. The definition is to "surrender or submit, as to superior power." Dad lives a life yielded to God. He is always searching for the will of God for our lives.
Devoted, adventurous, valiant and yielded are the words that came to mind when I sat down to describe my awesome Dad. I am thankful for the Godly example that God has given me.
My Dad is not flawless, but He has shown me we can live a wonderful life in Christ! We do not have to let mishaps control the future. I am so proud of the Man of God that I get to call my Daddy!
Throughout this post, I have used a few of my favorite pictures from this spring. I hope you have enjoyed my tribute to my Grandfathers and my Father. I am a blessed girl!
Daddy, Happy Father's Day 2022! I love you more than a hog loves slop!
Thanks for reading! See you next time.
