To Jeff

Happy Father's Day to you, honey!  I am SO  proud of you.  In a world run amuck and with so many families torn apart, you have stepped up to the plate.   You have fought hard to be a Godly father and husband, leading our family spiritually.  You have faced some real battles in your life that the enemy would have liked to have won, because he knows that it would have placed our family on the line.  But you- you gave it all to Jesus and He won the battle for you and has blessed our family with a father who is fully present and who loves his children unconditionally.  This world is in dire need of more fathers like you.  There would be so many less children wounded, wondering who their daddy is and if he really loves them.  We are raising two boys, who will be two more fathers like you, because they have experienced that unconditional love and acceptance.  And, we are raising two girls who have seen first hand a real man who knows how to love his wife and provide for his family.  Every day, you point our family in the direction of our Heavenly Father and every day, I thank God for you and the role you play in their lives.  You can not be replaced.  I love you, Jeff!  Happy Father's Day!
