|My father c. at his ordination service|
My father spent a great portion of his life working hard, being involved in sports (he coached a lot), and teaching Sunday school. As I remember, his favorite job was during the time he was trucking for Allied. He always came back home bragging what stars he ran into while delivering cargo in California. The thing I remember about him the most, he stressed a scripture from the bible that will never leave me - "If a man don't work, he don't eat." (2Thessalonians 3:10). He was not playing either. Every child, at any age was required to do something around the house. If you were able to communicate you were hungry effectively, verbal or not, you had to work for it. Because of this virtue, I learned to never to depend on anyone for anything when I am well able to get up and do for myself. Thanks Daddy!! Here's a post I did in memory of my father earlier this year: http://timewithgranny.tumblr.com/post/16469095710/live-without-regrets-this-post-is-in-memory-of-my

All three parents have served God and their children well. I appreciate them, and I'm sure God does too.
