Honor one another
Above yourselves.
Romans 12:9
Today is my Dad’s birthday.  The way he lives his life has been one of my greatest blessings.  Every morning, for the last forty years, my Dad has awoken early to spend time with the Lord.  I see the fruits of this consistent time in everything that he does.  With his recent health issues, I am even more aware of looking for ways to show him love and honor.  Because it reflects my Dad’s heart, I would like to share this sweet note my sister Margy wrote to him:
How blessed I am to have a father who has known and continues to know the secret of a beautiful life, and who will stay up late into the night (when he must arise early) to impart such secrets to his daughters.  For teaching me certain things which I am continuing to learn the truth of more and more, I thank you. 
You have taught me:
– that “being” is more important than “doing”
– that you understand the joys and the sorrows of my heart because they have been your own as well
– that we have a God that runs to meet us
– that life is a continual and mysterious gift.
