Fathers Day

I cannot believe it's almost June, and Fathers Day is just around the corner. Amazing how time has flown by. Fathers day is a bittersweet day for me. I enjoy celebrating it because of my husband and the wonderful relationship he has with our son, but I miss my Dad a lot too. The good news is that one day I will see him again. Not because I deserve it or because I'm a good person. But because my Heavenly Father sent His only Son to die on the cross for me. Jesus paid the debt that I could never pay. You see, sin created this huge gap between God, who is holy and perfect, and us - sinners and therefore imperfect. Jesus is the bridge that covers that gap, and ONLY THROUGH HIM we can reach God again. When I was 13, I accepted this amazing gift God offered me - a relationship with him through Jesus. On that day I was adopted by Him, and He became my heavenly Father. Now I can have the certainty of seeing my Dad again because he made that decision too. We both have Jesus as our Lord and Savior. We both are going to be in our heavenly Father's presence one day, and we are going to enjoy each other again too. Meanwhile, I'll keep celebrating Fathers Day with my husband, and making cards for him like this one.
Supplies used
Paper: Brown, olive green, off white and black cardstock
Tools: round corner punch, computer, printer, precision scissors
Stamps: 'Moments in Time', and background text (Stampabilities)
Ink: Black
Embellishments: Medium and small brown pearls, pocket watch, light brown twine, man and boy silhouette (I found this online, printed it and pasted it on black cardstock), sticker letters.

I hope you can celebrate Fathers Day with your Dad, but most of all, I hope God has become your heavenly Father. If not, you can always go to him, ask him to forgive you for your wrong choices, accept that Jesus is His Son and only way to get to Him, and ask Him to be your Savior. If you have any questions, you can email me, or leave me a message on my Facebook page (same name as this blog). 

Happy Fathers Day. Many blessings unto you.
