In Memory Of Dad

In Memory Of Dad

Proverbs 23:22Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old. (NIV 1984)

My Musing – Each weekday, I’ve been focusing on some devotions and advice that I gave my son Joel upon his college graduation.  Today I am going to switch it up a bit, as today is the first anniversary of my Dad’s death.  Today, my devotional musing goes out in memory of my Dad.

Apart from the work of the Holy Spirit in my life, the greatest impact on my spiritual development has been my Dad and Mom.  To these I owe whatever spiritual legacy I have.

Over the past year, I often found myself thinking, “What would Dad have thought about it?”  Today, one year after his passing, I find myself thinking, “I wish I could talk it over with Dad one more time.”

Dad and Me

Below is a video that my brothers and I collaborated on and that my son Joel produced.  It is a tribute to my Dad’s life.  If you watch until the very end you’ll hear a recording of my Dad saying, “I love you guys very, very much.”  Well Dad, we all miss you very, very much!

 My Advice – Joel, as you read from “A Father’s Devotions,” remember the example of your Grandfather.
