Focus on Sunday

As we approach Father’s Day this Sunday, I am remembering my father - and my grandfather. They were steady, honest, humble, faithful, loyal, trustworthy, and loving providers. They were stable life compasses, especially in my early years. I was blessed . . . I am grateful!

Ask yourself: Who were you stable life compasses as you negotiated growing up? Who have been the fathers, mothers, teachers, coaches, mentors, in your life?

And for whom are you providing stability, a compass for guidance? To do such a thing for another person is life giving!!

Happy Father’s Day to all!
