Father’s Day Thoughts

Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things,
give heart and soul and mind and strength
to serve the King of kings.

Rise up, O men of God!
His kingdom tarries long:
bring in the day of brotherhood
and end the night of wrong.

Rise up, O men of God!
The Church for you doth wait;
her strength unequal to her task;
rise up, and make her great!

Lift high the cross of Christ!
Tread where his feet have trod;
as brothers of the Son of Man,
rise up, O men of God!

In honor of the Godly men who have graced my life and whose ‘callings’ as fathers have taught me to be a woman of God - my dear father who guided my footsteps. . .

My sweet father-in-law who loved me as his own. . .

And the wonderful man who loves me and cherishes me and is the father of my children.

Thank you, dear ones, for being strong men of God! You have displayed the love and care of my Heavenly Father and helped me to trust Him without hesitation.

  1. I found your BLOG on Ivory Blush Roses. I love Lisa's BLOG and I viewed yours awhile ago and thought I should comment today on how I enjoy all you post as well. Some of your books and movies are my favorite too. Especially Anne Of Green Gables:) I'll check in more often and I hope you have a nice Sunday. Mary
