Two Special Events.. One Day

Today marks two special events..
Father's Day & Jeff's Birthday
In honor of the two special men of my life..
This post is for you!

When God Created Fathers
When the good Lord was creating
Fathers he started with a tall frame.
And a female angel nearby said,
"What kind of Father is that?
If you're going to make children so close to the ground,
why have you put fathers up so high?
He won't be able to shoot marbles without kneeling,
tuck a child in bed without bending,
or even kiss a child without a lot of stooping."
And God smiled and said,
"Yes, but if I make him child size,
who would children have to look up to?"
And when God made a Father's hands,
they were large and sinewy.
And the angel shook her head sadly and said,
"Do you know what you're doing?
Large hands are clumsy.
They can't manage diaper pins, small buttons,
rubber bands on pony tails or even remove splinters
caused by baseball bats."
And God smiled and said,
"I know, but they're large enough to hold
everything a small boy empties from his pockets at the end of a day...
yet small enough to cup a child's face in his hands."
And then God moulded long, slim legs and broad shoulders.
And the angel nearly had a heart attack.
"Boy, this is the end of the week, all right," she clucked.
"Do you realize you just made a Father without a lap?
How is he going to pull a child close to him
without the kid falling between his legs?"
And God smiled and said,
"A mother needs a lap.
A father needs strong shoulders to pull a sled,
balance a boy on a bicycle,
and hold a sleepy head on the way home from the circus."
God was in the middle of creating two of the largest feet
anyone had every seen when the angel could contain herself no longer.
"That's not fair.
Do you honestly think those large boats are going to
dig out of bed early in the morning when the baby cries?
Or walk through a small birthday party
without crushing at least three of the guests?"
And God smiled and said,
"They'll work. You'll see.
They'll support a small child who wants to ride
a horse to Banbury Cross,
or scare off mice at the summer cabin,
or display shoes that will be a challenge to fill."
God worked throughout the night,
giving the Father few words,
but a firm authoritative voice;
eyes that saw everything,
but remained calm and tolerant.
Finally, almost as an afterthought, he added tears.
Then he turned to the angel and said,
"Now, are you satisfied that he can love as much as a Mother?"
The angel said no more.

"Children's children are the crown of old men,
and the glory of children is their father."
(Proverbs 17:7).

You were the best Granddaddy..

Yet You Always had a smile..
You were the best Daddy..

To the Man I love..

Who God filled with so much love..

The moment I saw you I fell in love..
You choose me and my crazy dog too..

You Are..
The Best Dad..

The Greatest Husband..

Man of God..

You Were A Proud Dedicated Soldier..

When I tell you, "I love you"
it means so much more than 3 little words.
It means that your happiness is so important to me...
that I desire many blessings in life for you...
it means that I always want to be there for you...
that no matter what happens in our lives,
we will come through it together...
it means that I would rather be with you
than anyone else in the world...
it means that you're not only
my partner in life and the
wonderful father of our children,
but also my very best friend.
I Thank God Everyday For Blessing Me With You..
Happy Father's Day
Happy Birthday My Love..
I Love You
