The Heart Of Our Daddy

Time alone revealed the true heart of our Daddy.

Seasons of his life reflected the loving care he gave our family.
We remember a daddy who held his children close, rocked
and 
sang beautiful songs of faith over us.
We remember long years of sacrificial hard work to provide for a growing family.
His example taught us to take responsibility for those we love,
even when the cost is great.
Looking back, we believe he would have given his life for any one of us.
That kind of love goes a long way when it is
forever modeled before you.
We remember the love that swelled our hearts when he would say;
“I’m the richest man in town because of the
seven children God gave me.”
We remember Daddy was always true to Mother.
Loving her, providing for and protecting
her all those years.
We remember a contagious laughter that just about lifted the roof.
Like the day we watched our favorite family movie.
Those were the times 
we just about got down
and rolled on the floor with him.
How we loved to hear Daddy laugh.
We remember challenging seasons of life, when hope was restored by
his oft-quoted confident words.
“Everything’s going to be all right”.
An echo of the promise of Romans 8:28:
“God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God.”

Thank you God for giving us a daddy that left us with
a legacy we shall always cherish.

Call Him God’s Son
Loving Savior
 Incarnate Baby come down to earth

Call Him Mighty God

Birthed in holy hush of night
and Laid in a manger 

Call Him Wonderful Counselor
Infinite Comforter,
Full of grace, mercy and truth

Call Him Jesus, Gift of the Father 
Seeking and saving
those who are lost 

Reflections from Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, John 3

What a wonderful time of the year as believers in Jesus remember the hope and joy of Christmas. What wonderful news that Jesus broke through the darkness of night to enter our  world…To show us what God is like. And what a miracle to believe that Jesus can still break through the darkest and hardest of hearts and cause us to be born again. We can become like little children and given eternal life when we bow before the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and receive this Blessed Gift of the Father. The gift of forgiveness of our sins, the gift of new life in Christ, the gift of heaven awaiting those who will come and believe. I invite you to grab a bible and read the entire chapter of John 3. May we have eyes to see and ears to hear the good news of the gospel.

May the Joy of Jesus fill your heart and home this Christmas and in the days to come.
Love Glenda and Dave Mills

A Song in the Night

100_2836.jpg.rosesong
I’d rather walk

in the valley with Jesus

than on a mountain-top

without Him.

He gives a song

in the night. 

He sings loudly,

knitting our hearts together

with sweet chords of love.

I’d rather walk

through valley’s long trial

with the Shepherd—

than high on a mountain

without His sweet song.

Sing over me, Shepherd of my soul. Help me go forth with heart
and hands lifted up, s
inging Love’s sweet song.

 

I call to remembrance my song in the night. Psalm 77:6
He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17
