3 things I admire about my Dad

As I listened to a half-dozen people in church give tributes to their dad, my thoughts drifted, as could be expected, to my Dad, and the things I have learned from him.

That’s My King

Love this video. Yes, That’s My King! And that is who we are celebrating at this time of year. It’s about what I get or give. It’s not about Santa or elves. The reason that I celebrate Christmas is because a Man was born. Long ago. In stable. And He lived an example for me and then died. But He rose again. For you and for me.

That’s My King.

Is He Yours?
