As I looked back through the pictures I have of Joel on Father’s Day I was reminded of some really great memories and some really sad ones too. One of those memories doesn’t even need a picture to remind me of the heartache this daddy was feeling the year he had to face Father’s Day without his little girl in his arms. There will always be one Father’s Day picture missing. But as I thought back through the past four years of celebrating Joel as a dad, I couldn’t help but be reminded that my family is so very blessed. Joel is a fantastic dad. He loves his kids intensely. And whatever their time is here on earth, I can be certain that my kids will be well loved by their daddy. I am so thankful that the Mac kids can grow up with the best Mac Daddy!
Levi and I took Joel to breakfast at McDonalds before church this morning to celebrate. It is his favorite. He is easy to please!Oh, and he loved his Tiny Print cards!
I know very well that while Father’s Day is a day to celebrate the dads in our lives, it also can be a very hard day for whatever reason. We were reminded in church this morning that we have a Heavenly Father who is more than capable of filling whatever void you might be facing today. And while today I am celebrating the amazing dads that Joel and I have been blessed with and the amazing dad that Joel is to my own kids, I am so thankful for that truth. Our Heavenly Father loves us more than we could ever imagine. His love is personal and passionate and powerful. He loves us like no one else can. I will never be able to fully comprehend the love of my Heavenly Father, but I can be certain that his His love for me will never change.
Happy Father’s Day!
