\ Sanctus Real \ Lead Me I look around and see my wonderful life Almost perfect from the outside In picture frames, I see my beautiful wife Always smiling, but on the inside, oh, I can hear her saying Lead me with strong hands Stand up when I can’t Don’t leave me hungry for love, chasing dreams But what about us Show me you’re willing to fight That I’m still the love of your life I know we call this our home But I still feel alone I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes They’re just children from the outside I’m working hard, I tell myself, “They’ll be fine; they’re independent” But on the inside, oh, I can hear them saying … So Father, give me the strength to be everything I’m called to be Oh, Father, show me the way to lead them Won’t You lead me? To lead them with strong hands To stand up when they can’t Don’t want to leave them hungry for love Chasing things that I could give up I’ll show them I’m willing to fight And give them the best of my life So we can call this a home Lead me, ‘cause I can’t do this alone Father, lead me, ‘cause I can’t do this alone .
After Randy's great sermon, we had the Lord's supper. What a wonderful and fitting time to remember our Heavenly Father and the sacrfice he made for us. Then, we headed to the creek to watch Randy baptize my nephew Ethan. I am certain that this is a father's day that Randy will never forget.
A precious moment between father and son.

This pictures are a little out of order but oh well, above is a picture of one of the best dads that I know. Jeff you mean the world to your two little boys and me. They love you so much and each day, they are so excited to see you come home so you can play with them in the floor. We love you so much and thank you for taking care of us and leading our family.

Another example of how great of a father Jeff is.
Before the baptism, Randy led us in pray. I couldn’t help but think about the last time I stood at this creek and the emotions I felt while watching my amazing father being baptized. My father is a great man and had worked so hard his entire life taking care of his family. I am so thankful for the Christian man he has become and the example he has set for his children.
After the creek, we headed to mom and dads and we had lunch. It was so good. We had ham, potato salad, fabulous garlic-cheese biscuits, beans, and macaroni and cheese.
Finally, we concluded the day by visiting the other father in our lives, Bert. Bert is such a wonderful Father in Law as well as a Pa, Pa. My kids just love him so much. I just want to say how much I appreciate him setting such a good example for Jeff in how to be a father and a husband. Our family is truly blessed to have you in our lives.
To all the fathers in my life, I love you all!!
