Winners for the Grand Prizes will be select from those who follow and comment on all of the individual blogs.
Now, please allow yourself to cry, laugh, smile, along with any other emotion the Lord may bring your way. You will find that there are many prizes throughout the hop.

I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus. John 17:23
For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed. John 17:26
He is the exact representation of my being. Hebrews 1:3

I made this card for my father-in-law for Father's Day.
I decided to use this for the Blog Hop because fathers were giving to use to be an example of how our relationship is to be with Our Father (God).

Jesus was given to us to be an example.
His life and how He lived is how we are to model our lives.

Thank you Dear Lord for Your Love Letter
Your Son Jesus

I was blessed to have been given several examples of what and father's love should be:
Father, Granfather, Uncles and Father-in-Law.

This is what the inside of the card said:

"He didn't tell me how to live;
He lived,
And let me watch him do it."

Becky Dunham said...

This is such a sweet post Monique! i love that letter from God - so thought provoking isn't it. Makes me teary-eyed. We are both lucky it seems that we have had good men in our lives - so many do not. My father left when i was 6 weeks old, but I have been fortunate to have a step-father who is for all intents and purposes my real father. My FIL is also a very wonderful man. Your card is beautiful and I love that quote.
