Normally, I like to include a review or posting on four to five children’s books a week. But, as you can see there has been only one in the last week. Unfortunately, this is primarily due to the sudden passing of my wonderful Dad this week and all the arrangements, events, and paperwork that goes with such an occurrance. So, in tribute to him I am including the conclusion of the memorial statement I made Saturday in honor of him.
He was a man of faith and a man that I am proud to call my Dad. He left us too early and very suddenly, but I know that he knew I loved him and that I would see him again at the great banquet that God has prepared for each of us that have come to know Him. So, the best thing I can say that I learned from my Dad and that I hope to share with you is to forgive others no matter how hard. And, the greatest thing he shared with me was that no matter what has happen or what I have done God will always be there.
And, finally to my Dad’s family, friends, and acquaintances I leave you with a thought that my Dad had written down as a personal attribute to try and attain, he paraphrases from scripture that - - - Love seeks the best in others.
There was quite a bit more and the beginning was written in a letter format to my daughter, but I thought it too long to include. So, although not book related, my Dad was a great encourager of my book “habit” and love of reading.
In about a week I will start the book reviews up again. So, please stop by and see what’s new.
