Father’s Day Recap

I hope our blog readers enjoyed a fantastic Father’s Day!

We celebrated ours early before my sisters left for their ministry trip. Yes, they’re still gone, with no return date set quite yet, but thank you for praying! They’re doing very well and excited to see the Lord working! Please keep praying for their safety and opportunities to share Christ.

So, onto Father’s Day! First, I have to share two pictures from our very small group on Father’s Day proper.

We had a delightful day at church, a special meal, talking with my sisters, quiet time, and Dad made Jesse and me espresso.

So now to our celebration the day before Memorial Day.

One of Dad’s favorite dessert is pumpkin pie.

One of Mary’s cards above.

Our gift was disguised.

We got him a wheelbarrow! It’s hard to find a good, quality wheelbarrow, but we think we found it. If you wish for one, they’re from Menards.

Dad loved his gift.

Jesse is quite the guy! ๐Ÿ™‚

So y’all, I’d love to hear something you admire about your dad!

“The fear of the Lord tendeth to life:
and he that hath it shall abide satisfied;
he shall not be visited with evil.”
Proverbs 19:23

  1. We got our dad a nice cooler to replace our old one. He was so excited! Praying for the girls!

    Also, would you please pray for my sister? She’s expecting her second baby any day now!

  2. Looks like a lovely Fatherโ€™s Day ๐Ÿ™‚ Iโ€™m going to celebrate with my Dad when I visit my parents in a few weeks! I so admire my Dadโ€™s sense of humor, intelligence, and curiosity about the world we live in. His is a lifelong learner and passed on his curiosity and love of learning to his children, which Iโ€™m thankful for. Growing up, he was ALWAYS reading and sharing interesting facts and information heโ€™d come across with my sister and I (And he still does this!) He also encouraged us to try new things and get out of our comfort zones, which doesnโ€™t come naturally to me as an introvert, but iโ€™m always glad when I do it.

    1. Those are great things about your dad, Katie! Hey, celebrating late is great too! ๐Ÿ™‚ Having a dad who is a lifelong learner is such a blessing. My dad’s the same!

  3. I have been stressing a bit today wondering where I should get my husband’s new wheelbarrow at. Thank you!

  4. Here in Italy, we celebrate father’s day on March 19th, as it is ST. Joseph’s day.

    However, I always take the opportunity to celebrate my dad twice in a year, with a card and a freshly baked little cake! This year it was a fresh fruit tart ๐Ÿ™‚

    Many blessings,


  5. Very nice pics and fun celebration! My husband enjoyed his favorite meal, chili…yes even in the heat! We got him a lower end version of a Yeti cup and two shirts. We went to my parents in the evening and everyone brought desserts and celebrated all the dads. Such fun times!

  6. I love my dad’s desire to never give up! Even through severe back pain and many financial difficulties. He always persevered and looked forward and never backwards. To this day his 7 children have witnessed his endurance and now are implementing that drive in their families! Also, for my husband on Father’s Day we purchased the audio book “Preparing Sons for a single-income family.” He is taking our oldest son with him to work this summer and they are both gaining much wisdom from your father :o)! Praise be to our great God for provision for His children. We have many praises to share with the plethora of products through your family’s ministry…We will save for another time. Many blessings to you this day Sarah! You are loved and prayed for here in our home!

    1. Kim,

      Thank you for sharing! Your dad sounds like quite an inspiration! I’m thrilled you’ve been blessed by Preparing Sons. Thank you for your prayers! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. wheelbarrow is great…. especially with all the yard work…. we found a wheelbarrow when one of our neighbors threw it away but it works well… so i donโ€™t have to carry the soil, mulch…

  8. What I admire about my dad is that he makes time for his family and does family Bible time with us after dinner every night. I like how he does special things with me like playing chess, taking me to get coffee, or taking me to the World War II museum (did that the other week). ๐Ÿ™‚
