Happy Father’s Day

You’d think I was a king. I woke today to beautiful girls all around me, bringing me food and drinks, rubbing my back and giving me gifts. Of course my son was involved too. My gifts were mostly homemade, but whether bought or not, they were exceptional.

Typical to most Father’s Days, I start expecting royal treatment; like I deserve it or something. Then sooner or later I ask my wife for something or another of royal nature, as I did again today. Like every other year, I got the same feisty answer. “You ain’t my father.” As if to say, “Your reign is limited buddy, so don’t get too excited.”

That feistiness gives me a sense of where she is at. When there is pain, there is no room for humor, spunk, wittiness, or anything like that. But today there was all of that. It was awesome. She was able to take a walk at a park, sit on the patio and chat, eat meals at the table, and fire off some pretty good remarks to keep me humble on this day that I have a tendency to get out of line.

This was a happy Father’s Day. And my favorite gift is a happy mother; my wife.

  1. That’s beautiful!!! I thought of you two regarding your walks tonight and I immediately thought of Adam and Eve walking in the garden. As it should be. Praying for the peace of God every day that transcends understanding. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade – kept in heaven for you who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith- of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire- may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls. Our Father’s Day is every day. Glad your family enjoyed this day of togetherness and encouragement!! It is a blessing for all of us to hear as well.

  2. GREAT to hear that you had a wonderful Father’s Day! Sounds also like a good Mother’s Day.I know each and every day can bring something different for the Maier Family so I pray today will bring a refreshed spirit with strength and might from the Most High.I read Isaiah 57:10 this am. Know we love you and prayers continue from CL.
