Happy Birthday, Dad!

Happy 64th birthday to my dad - a man of God, a steadfast champion of a responsible, holy and righteous life, a father who has always been more than a parent; he is also my pastor. It may not have been the easiest thing to grow up a minister's daughter, but it was never confusing (it never is, in the straight and narrow - you always know if you're going with or going against, lol). I thank the Lord for blessing me with an extraordinary father, a person who has very clear principles and sticks to them, a person whose testimony of faith edifies and inspires those who know him, a person who has prayed for me every single day of my life and more (so that in my years of folly away from the Lord, I was still surrounded by His protection and blessing)... I pray that the favor of the Lord always be upon him, that his health remain good, that his ministry continue to flourish, and that his life be blessed more than ever. :)
