"F" is for FATHER

Day six in Alphabet for August for me over at Chiot's Run.

FATHER/Earthly - Oh, this one just jumped into my head, and heart, the minute I began this.  I had the most wonderful FATHER any person could ever have.  He was 52 years old when I was born.  He taught me so much, and he was so loving, kind, honest, trustworthy, honorable, etc., etc. I literally could go on and on.  I posted about him soon after I began blogging and I invite you to go here to meet him, a picture, and get to really know him!!

FATHER/Heavenly - I have always said it has not been hard to wrap my arms and my heart around my Heavenly FATHER because of the example I had in my Earthly FATHER.  What a wonderful world this would be if every child knew the wonderful Earthly FATHER and Heavenly FATHER that I have, and do, know.  If you do not know our Heavenly FATHER please turn to Him.  He is waiting for you with arms wide open and He will never leave you or forsake you or let you down.

FATHER/Earthly - part II - Mickey the FATHER to my FOUR children.  He is a wonderful FATHER and all his kids adore him.  He exemplifies so many wonderful qualities of his Heavenly FATHER as he leads a godly example before them on a daily basis.  They know they can always count on him and they love him with all their hearts.

FAITH - Nothing in my life has been more important to me than my FAITH in my Triune God:  FATHER - Son - Holy Ghost or Spirit.  I do not know how anyone survives in this cruel, hard, wicked world without FAITH in God.  I am glad, and thankful, that I have lived 55 years of my 73+ with strong FAITH built upon, not a Church, but upon THE Word of God/ the Bible.  

FAITHFUL/FAITHFULNESS - I am determined to remain FAITHFUL to my God, my husband, my children, my grandchildren, my in-loves, and my church as long as I have breath in my lungs.  I count FAITHFULNESS as one of the highest of qualities that I desire and look for in any person or relationship.  Jesus says (in the red letters ! :o) "When I return, will I find FAITH upon the earth", I am determined He will find it in me.  How about you?

I don't know if many are reading these or not but I am truly enjoying doing Alphabet in August and it is certainly getting me back to blogging daily.

I am catching up with you and I have truly reading your alphabet for August.
I truly agree about the heavenly father.
I never had a loving father here on earth but I turned to my heavenly father for my guidance. I knew he would love me always.

What a privilege to have had such a father for yourself and your children.
Even more so for all to receive the same love from Our FATHER in heaven.

I'm enjoying the easy pace of this Alphabet in August, too, Susan. It's a busy time of year with school starting back up, canning, etc. and this makes it nice to have a topic each day. PLUS, I'm truly considering my character traits, good and bad, and letting others see that I'm not perfect.
