Pride Reinforces Love

I am extraordinarily blessed in so MANY ways--not the least of which is having
this man for my father.  The hours spent watching him in the yard today 
brought me great joy.  At the age of 84, he is still teaching me a great deal!
Thank you, HEAVENLY FATHER, for my earthly dad.
"I talk and talk and talk, and I haven't taught people in 50 years 
what my father taught by example in one week." -- Mario Cuomo
"One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters." -- George Herbert
  "My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it."
-- Clarence Budington Kelland
"None of you can ever be proud enough of being the child of such a Father who has not his equal in this world - so great, so good, so faultless. Try, all of you, to follow in his footsteps and don't be discouraged, for to be really in everything like him none of you, I am sure, will ever be. Try, therefore, to be like him in some points, and you will have acquired a great deal."
-- Queen Victoria of England (clearly speaking of our Heavenly Father)
"It's only when you grow up, and step back from him, 
or leave him for your own career and your own home—
it's only then that you can measure his greatness
and fully appreciate it. 
Pride reinforces love." -- Margaret Truman


  1. Priceless! What a beautiful, living tribute.

  2. You certainly are blessed Rebecca. But I am sure that your father feels the same way about his beautiful daughter! Love Di ♥

  3. This is a precious and moving tribute to
    your father, Rebecca. How wonderful that
    you still have him in your life! Love
    the quotes.

  4. What a beautiful tribute ...

    Delighted to meet you today. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to dip into some serious goodness.


  5. I am so blessed to have a father like yours.

  6. What a very sweet tribute to your father. My Dad died when I was just 14, over 40 years ago. I think of him every day...give your dad another hug!

  7. Your daddy is precious. So is mine. Undoubtedly one of the reasons we know and love our Jesus!

    I think I'll go call mine...


  8. Just today I was admiring the relationship my granddaughter (3) has with her daddy. I'm so proud of mine and he (along with my Mother) will be visiting here for the weekend. I am blessed. I loved all the father quotes and the sneak peak into your precious daddy, too.

  9. I love this.

    Yes, you are truly blessed.

  10. Rebecca,
    what a lovely tribute to your Father.
    Loved all those great quotes, so true, that we
    see so much more the older we get.
    You were very blessed to grow up with a godly Father............
    blessings sweet friend,
