S: Terry Sloan-An Amazing Man 2011
BC: Fear and love-everything a father says and does must inspire one or the other.
1: When God Created Fathers When the good Lord was creating fathers, he started with a tall frame. A female angel was passing nearby and said, "What kind of father is that? If you are going to make a child so close to the ground, why do you put fathers up so high? He won't be able to shot marbles without kneeling,tuck a child into bed without bending over or even kiss a child without stooping?" God smiles and said "Yes but if I make him child sized, who would children have to look up to?"
2: Like Father, Like Son
3: Favorite Dadisms........ "You don't have to like it.You just have to do it." "I miss you...with every bullet." "Keep it simple stupid." "Sorry doesn't solve the problem."
8: A daughter's first true love is her father.
10: A family that plays together..... | Still sounds pretty bad!!!
12: Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest in inheritance- Ruth Renkel
13: A father carries pictures where his money used to be-Unknown
18: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy. Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude; It is not self-seeking, nor easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongdoing. It does not delight in evil, But rejoices in the truth. It always protects, trusts, hopes, and preserves. There is nothing love cannot face; There is no limit to its faith, hope, and endurance. In a word, there are three things that last forever: Faith, hope, and love; But the greatest of them all is love. -- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
