June 21–Happy Daddy’s Day!

We celebrated Father’s Day early this year. Our precious “grown and flown” daughters came in on Saturday to celebrate and spend time with their Daddy. (And me, too!!)

I am so blown away—humbled, thankful, astonished—by the love we have as a family.

No. We’re not perfect. And our life has not been free of pain or sin or illness or confusion or many other opportunities for growth (aka–challenging times).

But! The love of our Abba, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, has given us such a passionate, intimate, honest, faithful, crazy, joy-filled love for each other.

And I am blown away. And humbled. And thankful. And astonished.

Thank you, my Abba, for showing me that You are my True Daddy. Thank You for healing my heart. You turned my mourning into dancing! And I love You so much!

Thank you, my Timmy—my husband, my most intimate of friends—for being the most incredibly loving, always present, completely unselfish, wise, fun, encouraging, counseling, generous, tender and strong Daddy our precious girls could EVER have had! You have been a faithful reflection of our Loving, Holy, Eternal, Intimate Abba to them. No better foundation could ever have been given to our girls. I love you!

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us,

that we should be called children of God!

…This is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.

1 John 3:1, 11 

It is the LOVE of our Abba to us that has made it possible for us to love each other in this way—in His Way! Thank You, Abba!  Hold us tightly so we will choose to let you lead us continually in Your Love…in Your Way…Every Day!


In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
