A Man Called Dad

Dad, Mentor and Best Friend

+

To God be the glory for my father’s love;

I celebrate Father’s Day with this in mind.

I offer all honor and praise to You above

For the rich treasures in my dad that I find.

.

First and foremost I see his deep Love for You

That You placed within his spirit a long time ago.

His faithful Obedience follows this love so true

Reflecting the fruit of Your Word here below.

.

His Reverence for life is so dear to his heart

For You have so blessed him with Your reality.

His endless Devotion to You plays a major part

In his constant practices of impartiality.

.

It’s impossible to put into words what I truly feel

Towards my dad, my mentor, that You did send.

So I leave this with You, Lord, as at Your feet I kneel,

Thanking You for this precious dad. . . my best friend!
