Father's Day Thrifty Sunday......She didn't send a card

Most Dads will spend today receiving some loving thoughts, opening over-priced cards and oohing over a new tie. This is a special Father's Day. I can actually give my Dad something that I have never given him before. It fits perfectly and he can't return it.

Fatherhood is pretending the present you love the most is soap-on-a-rope. "
- Bill Cosby


Now today I can give him a blog post. I learned last week during my book review for Sleep that when  I name dropped my dad, he noticed. He reads my blog, that alone makes him a really cool dad. He laughed about it and then I let him know, I also posted it on He thought that was his 5 minutes of fame. Well he's back in the spotlight. I decided to do it in the style of an acrostic.

Master Chef. My dad has a gift for feeding crowds. When he comes to town, I plan to have company. He loves to cook and serve people. Even in my ill-equipped kitchen, he produces. He is an excellent cook. He also grocery shops. Now those are the two chores I can live without. Come back soon, Dad!
Young at heart. My Dad is the first one to plan the trips to Disney. He not only has dragged the grandkids numerous times, he has also visited Disney with my friends and their kids. And yes, he owns a wii, just for the grandkids to use.

Devoted to prayer and physical exercise. My Dad faithfully prays every morning for our family and our loved ones. He can be seen riding his bike or on his treadmill at around 6 every morning.
Action packed: My Dad goes non-stop. We used to joke about how many times he has retired. He is always serving somewhere in his church, driving somewhere for someone, planning travel for himself or others, his list tires me out. I don't bother calling him at home, I just call his cell hone because he is always out, being a blessing to someone.
Doer of the Word. In 1990, my dad and his wife made a commitment to follow Christ. Since that day, they have spent their lives living out the word of God. He is a man of Godly convictions and uses the word of God as his guide.

There now, that wasn't too Hallmarkish. Happy Father's Day, Dad. I love you.

Your Favorite Daughter,
