Good, bad, or indifferent, our father will always be our father. They will always be a part of who we are. If you, like me, had a great father, try to find a way as often as you can to tell him you love and appreciate him. If your father was less than what he could or should have been, remember that the Lord still allowed him to be your father and God doesn't make mistakes – and please remember in this situation that your Heavenly Father loves you with a perfect and an unconditional love and He can be trusted with your heart.
Shared in love,
On July 19, 2002, Mom, Drake, and I took our first tour of the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine. Even though I was 52 at the time, I had never been in a mine and my only knowledge of mining came from hearing my Dad and Grandfathers talk about working in them. I must say that the Exhibition Coal Mine tour has changed my life forever!
