Happy Daddy's Day!

Edwin has requested that our family refer to Father's Day as Daddy's Day because neither of our children are all that sure who in the world “Father” is.

Today we honor you, Edwin, for being such a terrific Daddy. Strong and comforting.

And sweet and sensitive.

You are quite a guy, Edwin Attaway. I am so proud that you are my man, and that my daughters have the privilege of having you for a father. Because of you, the bar for our daughters' future husbands has been set very high.

I also want say a great big thank you to the man who set the bar so high for my husband. Daddy, you're a terrific father and grandfather. All of your girls love you (and so does Edwin)!

Of course, I have to honor the true Father, my Abba, Father. (For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father!" Romans 8:15) Thank You, Lord, for loving me and adopting me into Your eternal family. I may not have a picture to post, but He is the example from which Edwin and my Daddy learned the most about fatherhood. Rest in His strength and compassion today as you celebrate all fathers and grandfathers.
