Father's Day Thoughts

Today is Father's Day and that means I have to post something (I made up this rule). So I thought I would use pictures to share a few of the thoughts that come to mind every year about this time.

I could talk all day about each picture, but will spare you eight days of reading with my initial thoughts as I look at each picture.

While I used to see this picture and laugh at my dad as a cast member of That 70's Show, I now see a man that looked at me like I look at my boys.

A few years later, a haircut and a new addition.

Fatherhood royalty!! Both are with their Father for whom they lived life. Both were married to their spouses till death, and loved their family so much I feel it as I write these words.

My father was (and is) always able to make me smile like that.

Goal: To be the kind of father that will make him smile like that when he is 30 years old and has two kids on Father's Day 2036.

Totally undeserved favor!! Grace bought with the blood of a Son. There are no words.

Although I have been blessed, it is not in the leg department. Looks like Hudson got dealt a shabby leg hand and got my toothpicks (he is growing quickly however, so I reserve the right to eat my words when he has me beat by kindergarten.

Although I don't know what it's like to have a brother, I'm sure I'll soon find out from them. I look forward to watching these guys grow into the relationship that God has in store for them.

Here is an old picture of the luckiest man in the world! I figured I'd use this dorky picture so that my dad can't say anything about the "Simon and Garfunkel" pictures I posted of him earlier.
