I told the kids they should get their Daddy ties for Father's Day. He really needed them, plus my Grandpa always had a room full of ties. : - )
Cokie going rogue.
Cokie went to four different stores till she found her Daddy a back-scratcher.
Lyric added to the tie theme.
Then all the quads worked hard on adding to Lyric's present. It drove Lyric crazy they wouldn't leave it alone.
They put their Daddy's favorite candy in the tie bag... sack.
The big kids paid Dad his dues and spent the day with him. They even got up early to meet him for his coffee before church.
Lael wrote him a 2 page letter about how she really felt about him.
Our sweet friend met us for lunch. She just happened to be Lael's 1st grade teacher. Every day I would pick Lael up after school, and these two would come out of the school arm in arm.
Then Dad met up with Whitney to pick up his Father's Day gift from her.
“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
“This, then, is how you should pray:
“ ‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one. ’
For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
