A Strong Foundation

There is just something special about Dad's and Daughters.

 

It's a relationship that makes a young girl feel safe and secure, while softening a grown man.  I don't know about you, but I've noticed that it doesn't stop when you grow up.

 

Maybe this is true in your life as well.  I'm finding myself more thankful for the relationship that I have with my dad as an adult.  It wasn't always simple, my parents divorced when I was 10. I didn't always live in the same town as him, but he was always there for me. He still is.

 

He just left today after a week-long visit. I made sure to take the time and tell him how much I appreciate the impact he's made on my life as a man of faith.  I still remember, whenever I was with him, he would drag me to church even when I didn't want to go.

 

Now as an adult, having those lessons in mind has made all of the difference. Those lessons help me to handle the curve balls that have been thrown my way. Those lessons have been much more helpful than any dance class, soccer team or music lesson.  

 

I'm thankful that my dad made sure that I had a strong foundation in God.  I'm reminded to do the same for my kids.

 

It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. - Luke 6:48
