Today is my Dad's birthday!
As I said for my Mother's Birthday,
I was born of a Christian Mother -
I was born also with a Christian Father.
A Father who is gentle
who is quick to listen, slow to speak.
Who I never remember yelling at me or anyone else;
who always loved to tease in loving ways;
who supported his family,
sacrificing so I and my siblings could have a Christian education;
whose faithfulness, commitment to God and
to the church he was raised in
