THE BEST GIFT TO GIVE FOR FATHERS

I want to share this story about a perfect father I've read in "Our Daily Bread" in celebration of Father's Day yesterday.

My father once admitted to me, "When you were growing up, I was gone a lot."

I don't remember that. Besides working his full-time job, he was gone some evenings to direct choir practice at church, and he occasionally traveled for a week or two with men's quarter. But for all the significant (and many small) moments of my life- he was there.

For instance, when I was 8, I had a tiny part in an afternoon play at school. All the mothers came, but only one dad- mine. In many little ways, he has always let my sisters and me know that we are important to him and that he loves us. And seeing him tenderly caring for my mom in the last few years of her life taught me exactly what unselfish love looks like. Dad isn't perfect, but he's always been a dad who gives me a good glimpse of my heavenly Father. -Cindy Hess Kapser

In celebrating Father's Day, the best to give is the LOVE. Saying "I LOVE YOU" or 143 to your father makes them more happy.

I created this art for this week's art challenge in MIXED MEDIA MONDAY with the them "numbers" by Patty.
