Happy Father's Day Daddy

Here is the wonderful man who married the beautiful woman who birthed me!

Today my pastor preached on the importance of fearing the Lord and shared how God charges the men of the household- the fathers- to fear him and the many blessings that will be poured out on him and his descendants if he obeys. Pastor Bill used Noah's fear of the Lord in obedience to the command to build an ark as his example, referencing Hebrews 11- it was quite good, but it got me thinking about my dad, Peter James Loeffelbein. I have witnessed many times, my father's obedience to and fear of the Lord when I know it would be so much easier to fear man. And as a direct outcome, I have been privileged to experience many of the blessings God has poured out on our family- His grace never ends!

I thank you Dad for fearing the Lord- for loving your wife, disciplining us children in love and showing all who know you that the Lord of all is worthy to be praised!

I love you!
