I’m so thankful for the lessons my earthly father taught me. I had him until I was 28 years old, which is a blessing because so many people lose their father at a much younger age. I was married and settled by the time I lost him, but there is still a large empty place in my heart, I must admit. ❤
FATHER by McKane Davis
BROAD SHOULDERS – bear the weight of our world.
DEEP EYES – the window to a thousand stories.
GIVING HANDS – give charity unnoticed.
STRONG ARMS – protection from our darkest fears.
KIND HEART – of forgiveness, happiness, and love.
How did my father get so smart? He sought wisdom from the source, God. I know in life, my daddy knelt in prayer to seek God’s will on everything. I guess that’s the most important lesson he taught me. I learned to pray, to seek God’s will and His way throughout my life. Thank you, daddy, for teaching me to pray!
A father’s love is strong and sure, a quiet kind of care, a haven for his family, a promise to be there. – Unknown
What a blessing it was to be adopted into the Turner household! So many adopted people get all hung up over the fact that they are adopted, but I just remember that God had a plan, and me being with them was a significant part of His overall plan for my life. I wouldn’t change a thing even if I could.
WHAT DID YOU GIVE ONE LITTLE GIRL? A popular game or expensive toy? A Campfire Girl uniform, a Barbie doll? Oh these things are fine and so much fun, but is that all? Surely there was more to raising your adopted daughter than that.
Did you give her a real live pet, perhaps a cat!? If she had to choose what she wanted more than these, she would spend the day, the entire day with her daddy, together down on their knees: praising the Savior, praising the King, for all of their blessings, for every little thing!
There were teachable moments, there were life lessons learned; these were the rewards of living, yes, they had to be earned. Many crowns you received in heaven when your life was through – they were given because you gave her your time – a part of you.

Happy Father’s Day in heaven, daddy! I love you! 🙂
