A living testament to God's amazing transforming power is my dad. His childhood was far from ideal but it made him strong. So strong he decided he didn't need anyone, he could do it all on his own. He joined a notorious gang and lived life dangerously on the edge until he met my sweet mom. They were worlds apart...he a wild, bad boy, she innocent and gentle. Opposites do attract! This is where God stepped in and began to change my dad into who He wanted him to be. The change from past to present is jaw-dropping. Those who knew him "then" can't believe it's him "now". That's what my God can do!! My dad has accomplished much in his life...married almost 40 years, fiercely protective and loving dad, becoming an ordained minister, owning several of his own businesses, and his best role yet.....a pappy!!
Daddy, I am so thankful for you. I don't tell you often enough how much I love you and am proud of you. I am so glad God did His work in your life so that I could be raised in a Christian home and could know Him! Out of all your accomplishments, this is the most important one!
I love you dad, happy birthday!!!
