If you met my dad, the first thing you would likely notice is his eyes. Their hazel color is not what would draw you in, but rather the softness to them. They glow with a gentle love and deep wisdom.
He has the sagacity of a man who has walked the earliest parts of his life without God, only to meet and surrender himself to Jesus, and walk faithfully with him thereafter. He has seen the miracles that ensue when one walks in faith. He has seen Jesus supersede the common turmoils of this life, and has fallen in love with his Savior and guide.
Let our hearts be filled with gratitude for the fathers in our life who model sacrificial love and undying affection--drawing us nearer to God as a result.
I love you, dad. Happy Father's Day!
