{Day 50}

Ever met anyone who can make just about anything?  I have.  My father is an incredible man.  Yes, he made those bracelets in the pictures.  Yes, he made those earrings you see as well.  Yes, he built our last house and just about everything in it.  Yes, he is creative.  Not only is he very gifted in what he does but he also lives an exemplary life.  My father has been a rock for our family.  He is always faithful and takes such wonderful care of us.  He is always serving us and providing for us.  My father loves Jesus and it shows.  I am honored to be his daughter and friend.  Daddy I greatly respect and admire you.  Thank you for always loving me and encouraging me to be the best I can be.  I love you and think you are the best. 🙂

HELLO halfway through the project!  Time is flying by.  Make sure to give today.

    Yes does he sell the jewelry? Maybe he’d consider donating a portion of the proceeds to your fundraiser…

    It’s been years since I’ve seen a photo of your dad—someone I really respect, too. Your mom told me once that if she ever needed to make sure that he saw something she’d put it in his Bible because he’d be sure to see it. I’ve seen a different house that he built and it was amazing as well!

      Yes he is amazing! I am so blessed to have him as my dad. My parents enjoyed this comment! 🙂

    Hey! I have those earrings! Sally bought them for me for Christmas, and now I know where she got them :).

      Kinda jealous. The pair in this picture belong to my mother. You have the only other pair. An original by my dad is pretty special!

    I love your earrings and bracelets! Wow. Your dad is sooooooo talented. I like making jewlery, but it’s just like with beads. Not nearly as good as this! DAY 50!!!! Time flies fast!
