An ode to the Fathers

Happy Father's day!!! 

Today is a day that I remember the father that have and the dad that stepped into my life years ago that God needed back. 

This is my father. I love him very much. He was there to walk me down the aisle. He wasn't always super involved with my life, but over the past 6 years he has been. I'm so thankful that that, we continue to build a relationship every day. 


This man is known as my Godfather. He is not actually my godfather, but God sure did bring him in my life when I needed him the most. I met him when I was 14 years old. My life before him was rocky, unstable and lacked serious direction. He came in and turned my life around in ways I wouldn't understand until much later in my life. He taught me to make sure that I stayed aware of the things going on around me. That I couldn't always control what happened around me, but I could control the way I reacted. In the Fall of 2006, God needed him back. I was 18. His earthly presence was in my life for four years, but those years mattered the most. I never felt more love in my entire life than in those years. I still feel him everyday. I love him and I know he watches over me. I promise to write more about him. He will always be my dad. 


This is my ode to the fathers.
