|My grandfather and my dad
I’m paying tribute to the two most important men in my life growing up: my dad and my grandfather. Both have been gone a long time. Today, June 19th, would have been my dad’s 91st birthday. Happy Father’s Day and Happy Birthday, Daddy!
So to celebrate him and fathers everywhere, here’s a little bit of humor with lots of insights, written by Jim Watkins. Enjoy and be blessed!
The Proverbs 32 Man
by James Watkins
This just in! Archaeologist discovers long-lost “Proverbs 32 Man” passage. I am pleased to post this exclusive excerpt just in time for Father’s Day:
Who can find a virtuous man, for his price is far above a Hollywood hunk’s movie deal.
The heart of his wife doth safely trust in him, for his Internet browser history is free of anything degrading unto her or unto other women.
He shall do her no harm, so that she need not fear unfaithfulness or violence all the days of her life.
He worketh hard to provide for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of his household.
He is like a FedEx truck bringing food and household products from afar.
He riseth early while it is yet night and hath his time alone with God before going to work.
He considereth a major purchase, but first discusseth it with his wife.
He worketh out and eateth right to bring strength and health to his family.
His work ethic is strong and the products of his hands and mind are excellent.
His putteth his fingers to the keyboard, and doth not turn back in the face of adversity.
He stretcheth out his hand to the poor; yea, he reacheth forth his hands to the needy.
He shall not be afraid of the snow of winter, for he hath a Toro SnowMaster 724 two-stage snow blower.
He maketh household repairs even before his wife hath to ask him twice.
His wife is president of the PTA and sitteth with the elders on the church board.
He maketh homemade toys for his children in his well-stocked wood shop.
Strength and honor are his resume, and he rejoiceth in the time of promotion.
He openeth his mouth with wisdom, and on his tongue is the law of kindness.
He looketh well to the ways of his household, and eateth not the donuts of idleness.
His children rise up and call him blessed; his wife also, and she praises him on Facebook.
Many sons have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Give onto him the paycheck of his hands; and let his own works praiseth him in the marketplace.
