Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Father's Day

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
Honor thy father and mother;
which is the first commandment with a promise;
That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest
live long life on the earth.
And ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath;
but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:1-4

I've was blessed to have had a wonderful Dad.
He died in 1999.
Me and my Dad
I am blessed also to have a wonderful Step-Dad
who has treated me like his daughter for 
the last 46 years of my life.
I couldn't find a picture of me and my step-dad together but
 here he is with my mother
in 2008.
Happy Father's Day to all Dads. : )

A very special Happy Father's Day to you Dad,
and you Daddy in heaven.  : )

God bless you all.
Happyone  : )
 Old as she was,
she still missed her daddy sometimes.

  1. I love the cute photo of you and your Dad and a nice shot of your Mom and Step-Dad. Lovely post for Father's Day. Enjoy your Sunday and the new week ahead!

  2. Hi Karen, What a nice tribute to your dad and step-dad. And what a neat photo to have ... the one of you and your dad in 1955. A keeper for sure! Over the last couple of posts I especially enjoyed your photos of ... the red winged black bird, a couple of spots along the walk, the giant onion (how sweet was it?), the corn field, floor progress on cabin, and last (but not least) the pic from the road of the corn field with a little bit of interesting lens flare. Cool!

  3. Karen, thank you for sharing these precious pictures with us.

  4. Love the pics. My dad is in Heaven too! It was great I had a good dad, am sure you feel that way too

  5. Hi Karen! What a sweet photo of you and your Dad. And what a huge blessing it is to have not just one earthly father, but two! I know that not everyone has a good experience with their Dads, and what a joy that you had two.
    My dad is 90 years old, but still is doing pretty well. We spent the evening with him, and cooked dinner for him.
    Happy Monday :)

  6. You are so cute and always have been! Nice photos of both your dads.

  7. That picture of you and your dad is adorable. Also nice to see a photo of your mom and step dad. I think of your mom often and hope she is progressing in her healing process.

  8. I sometimes think that as we get older, we appreciate our parents more and more. What a nice picture of you and your father.
