Setting an Example ~

Wishing my dad a Happy Father’s Day!

We were blessed to be raised by a gun-toting, hard-working, family focused, God-loving man. Thanks for that, Dad.

And Happy Father’s Day to my hubby….who set(s) that same example.

To all men….this is your day. Enjoy it, own it, but remember….you are setting an example for everyone around you. It’s up to you to determine if your example is one that makes the world a better place.Β  And it’s never too late to start.Β β™₯

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

  10. A great post, Paula! I especially love the photo of your parents and the two little girls standing in front of that wonderful car!

    • Haha! Now that was a few years ago! My proof that I’m the little sister! I think that was in Enid, Oklahoma, 50 years or so ago. And now? Our younger set of kids live in Enid! Drove by the old house and it is still there.

      Hope your weekend has been awesome, Naomi. Happy day to you and yours β™₯
