My Father


When I was out doing my Christmas shopping I called my Mom to ask her what to get my Dad, since be it his birthday, Father's Day, or Christmas he always thought of other's first and would sat he wanted "Nothin." My mom said he had ruined all his t-shirts working over the summer and needed some new ones. I found some funny ones like "If my killer looks had better aim I wouldn't need to use a gun." Then I saw one with a scenic background with a Jesus Fish on it, in the corner it said "Jeremiah 16:16" and I looked it up on my phone, it says, ""Behold, I am sending for many fishers, declares the Lord, and they shall catch them. And afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the clefts of the rocks." I read it and it opitimized my dad; a fisher, a hunter, and most importantly a Godly man.

I wrote this to read at my dad's funeral a couple years ago.
