“Thanks Dad” 

Absorbing God’s Word

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6 

Applying God’s Word

Thanksgiving was my dad’s favorite holiday. He loved that our family made every effort to be together. Last Thursday, November 24, was the 41st anniversary of my father’s death.  

When I think of my dad, I do so with a grateful heart. I think about how hard he worked to provide for mom and the five of us children. My father had a deep love for Jesus. I admired him for his commitment to following Jesus and yet I was too selfish back then to join him on that journey. 

I briefly turned away from my faith in my thirties but eventually returned to the way I should go.

Thank You Lord for all those who inspired me to follow You, especially my parents. 

Accounting of God’s Word

Who inspired me to fall in love with Jesus and follow Him?
