This post is dedicated to my Dad who turned 60 years "young" today.....My Dad is a wonderful man. He loves the Lord! He was a wonderful husband, he is a wonderful father to my brother & I, a great father-n-law to David, and he is a wonderful Grammpy to Matthew & Michael. We are so blessed to have my Dad in our lives, he is a very wise man, who is still teaching me/us new things all the time. I hope he knows how proud of him I am and how much I love him!

Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Deuteronomy 5:16
