My Daddy

Bill Robinson -- that's my dear daddy. Let me tell you a little about him.
He was born around the time of the depression, and he's lived a long, satisfying life. He's spend decades serving the Lord in Christian work. He raised literally millions of dollars for the advancement of seminaries in the U.S. He is a devoted husband, and was a hard-working family man, raising four sons and one daughter on the limited income of a Christian worker.

My dad is the most dependable person I know, and I really mean that.  There is no one -- no one -- who is more trust-worthy than he is. I always think of him as the person I can lean on, really lean on, and he is rock solid. Over the years, I've had to lean on him a lot, and he has never failed me. In this way, I consider him to be a wonderful image of our heavenly Father. My daddy is loving, affectionate, generous to a fault, and extremely hospitable. He eagerly tracks down visitors at church and brings them home for Sunday lunch. They're always glad they came!

Many times I've had to ask my daddy for advice, and I've appreciated his wisdom, especially when I really didn't know which was the right course to take. I'm truly, truly thankful to have had a loving, giving, trust-worthy father; not every daughter has this privilege.  What a gift from God! Thanks, Daddy, for all you have been to me over the years. I love you so much.

  1. That's so funny -- most people say I look like my mom. Maybe we're ALL looking like each other, the longer we live.
