    Happy Birthday Dad!

    Happy Birthday Dad!

    Today is my Dad’s birthday.  I wanted to do a drawing for his birthday so I decided to look through his photos and find the perfect one of him.  I like this image because it shows Dad in the middle of one of those really happy moments with a genuine laugh and smile.  I have always admired how happy Dad is and how he doesn’t let life’s stressers bring him down.  Being that Dad is a very spiritual Christian man I really think the following verse describes the way he lives his life.

    “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
    -1 Corinthians 13 4-7 

    That is the thing I am most thankful about when I think about my Dad.  Dad has always taught us through his actions that loving others is the most important thing we can do.  I am so thankful to have a Dad that truly loves me and I am sure that anyone who knows Dad is thankful for the love he shows them.  Thank you Dad and Happy Birthday.
