Happy Fathers Day to my five favorite fathers…
Be assured that from the first day we heard of you, we haven’t stopped praying for you, asking God to give you wise minds and spirits attuned to his will, and so acquire a thorough understanding of the ways in which God works. We pray that you’ll live well for the Master, making him proud of you as you work hard in his orchard. As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work. We pray that you’ll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul – not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that he has for us. Colossians 1: 9-12 (The Daily Message)
I love you!

Thanks Ruthi for such a special Fathers Day Celebration with photos and Scripture. Very meaningful to us both. David enjoyed his visit per phone with Mark this afternoon. Happy Fathers Day Art, David, Mark, Jesse and Mike! You are all special men who live out that Scripture passage. With love, Mom (Sylvia) De Jong
