Thankful Thursday ~ My Daddy ♥

Iris @ Grace Alone is hosting TT for the month of June! Please visit Iris here and be blessed by all the Thankful Hearts ♥

I am soooo thankful for my Daddy and although I won't be able to be with him this Fathers Day because He is walking the streets of Gold with our Heavenly Father ~ I will be missing him and thinking of him.

My Daddy was a man with an amazing work ethic and he passed that on to my brother and I!
My Daddy had a heart for others and he gave passionately to those in need ~ He passed that on as well!
My Daddy gave me an example that when you do something ~ you go for it wholeheartedly! My brother and I learned that one well! :)

Thank you Daddy for all you did and the example that you gave makes me so proud! I love you and am so thankful for you! I miss you more than words can say!!!

I have to share that while I am thankful for my Daddy I couldn't help but be thankful for my friends here @ home and my bloggy friends who were beside me praying Faithfully while my Dad learned he had Lung Cancer. Your prayers touched all of us sooo deeply and I believe they made a huge difference in my Dads journey through Cancer as well as Daddys Acceptance of Christ! I know there were many praying that Daddy would not pass until I knew that he had made that choice. My Daddy was able to share with me just hours before he slipped into the coma, never to wake again, that He had in fact, accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior! For that ~ I am MOST Thankful! Bless each one of you for your love, friendship and prayers!

I ♥ you Daddy



Such a precious tribute to your dad, love you.


Loren, I am crying. I am so sad that you lost your Daddy so soon, but so glad that you do have the assurance that he is in heaven with Jesus! Thank you so much for this beautiful post! Have a terrific Thankful Thursday!

He & Me + 3

Your daddy is so handsome. I think you both have the same smile. I love this post and these pictures. I am so Thankful that you know you will see him again some day.


Those are awesome pictures of you and your dad, sister Loren. I know that "emptiness" we feel the size of our dads in our hearts. But thanks be to God for His wonderful promise of eternal life. And that we will be a part of that eternal reunion!

Praying for the Lord's comfort and strength for you. Blessings and love.

What a blessing your daddy continues to be in your life. I will be praying for you as you "get thru" this first one without him here.
Loveyou friend,

Daughter of the KING

Thank you Loren for sharing your heartfelt thanks today. May peace fill every fiber of your being this Father's day as you rejoice that your dad's home is now in heaven where there is no more pain or tears. Shear peace is truly his!

Loren, I remember when you were praying for your daddy's salvation as he was going through his last days of cancer. How wonderful to be comforted knowing that he is in heaven and will be waiting for the day when you will join him.

Wonderful tribute to your dad.



This is indeed a beautiful and
loving tribute to your father,
Loren. What a blessed peace we
experience in knowing our loved
ones go into His presence and
live on, just waiting for us.
Thanks for deciding to join my
blog. I'm sure I will be glad I
joined yours too.

Grace & Peace,



I am thinking of you this Father's Day, rejoicing because I know your father is spending time with the Father of all Fathers and is being loved on and celebrated for all that he did raising you and your family.

What a beautiful tribute to your father!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat


Dear Loren, Such a precious post about your father and what great things he taught you--and I got a big lump as I read about his last hours before slipping into the coma--what a precious promise you have of seeing him again.

Thanks for sharing this tender part of your past with us.



Oh Loren, this is such a beautiful post about your dear, sweet daddy!! I love the pictures but they sure make me miss his smiling face!! He was always so wonderful to me!! I am so thrilled to celebrate with you the fact that he is in Heaven loving on Jesus though!! I will definitely be thinking of you and praying for you this weekend. My heart is with you!!

I am also thrilled to know you have an amazing hubby who will make it as wonderful as possible even if it is supposed to be about him!! God really blessed us with the men in our lives!!

Love you my sweet friend!!

The picture of the two of you on the couch is PRICELESS. What sweet smiles you both have...just beautiful.

Thankful he had you praying for him all the way. God heard your cry.

Love you, my friend.


What a lovely tribute to your father!


I am so thankful I got to have a small part in your Daddy's decision for Christ. I know that so many were praying and prayer works. Praying God will comfort you this Father's Day. Your daddy has left an awesome legacy! Blessings sweet friend.
