Remembering My Dad On Father’s Day 2014


MY DAD WAS NOT A SUPERMAN AND THAT’S WHY HE IS MY HERO

HE TAUGHT ME HOW TO BE A MAN FROM THE TIME I WAS ZERO


OH WE CERTAINLY HAD OUR ARGUMENTS AND I SAID THINGS I STILL REGRET

HE DID GET VERY ANGRY WITH ME AT TIMES, AND YET

 

EVEN IN THOSE MOMENTS OF ANGER HE NEVER USED GOD’S NAME IN VAIN

HE DIDN’T JUST TALK CHRISTIAN HE LIVED IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN

 

THIS RHYME COULD BE YEARS LONG OF EXAMPLES OF THE HELP DAD GAVE

A FREE ROOM IN THE MOTEL, A HOT MEAL, HERE’S A RAZOR FOR A SHAVE

 

THERE WERE TIMES A STRANGER WOULD HAVE DINNER IN OUR HOUSE

DAD WOULD INVITE THEM IN WITH THE APPROVAL OF HIS LOVING SPOUSE

 

NO WORDS WERE EXPRESSED BY DAD AT THESE TIMES, NONE WERE NEEDED

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS IS THE LESSON I HEEDED

 

HE WAS ALWAYS IN HIS BIBLE SEARCHING FOR NUGGETS OF WISDOM

HE WOULD ASK MY THOUGHTS OF IT’S TEACHINGS ABOUT THE KINGDOM

 

IT WAS DAD’S WAY OF CONNECTING WITH HIS YOUNGEST SON

I WENT TO BIBLE STUDIES WITH HIM AND IT WAS FUN

 

I WAS PROBABLY 15 OR SO AND THESE GUYS OVER FIFTY

WOULD LET ME SHARE MY THOUGHTS ABOUT VERSES, THAT WAS NIFTY

 

I ACTUALLY THINK THEY ENJOYED A YOUNGER PERSON’S PERSPECTIVE

THERE REALLY IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG  IN SHARING GOD’S DIRECTIVE

 

FOR A BIBLE VERSE CAN SPEAK TO ME DIFFERENTLY THAN SOMEONE ELSE

THE SAME VERSE CAN HAVE A NEW IMPACT AFTER ANSWERING MORE OF LIFE’S BELLS

 

MY DAD PROBABLY DIDN’T GO TOO MANY DAYS WITHOUT QUOTING THE GOOD BOOK

WHEN SOMETHING TROUBLED HIM THAT’S WHERE HE WOULD LOOK

 

ANOTHER LIFE LESSON FOR HIS KIDS WITHOUT SAYING A THING

WE WOULD SEE HIM READING AND SOMETIMES HE WOULD SING

 

JUST BURST INTO A HYMN RIGHT OUT OF THE BLUE

OH DAD, I WISH I WERE MORE LIKE YOU

 

FOR I CAN’T SAY THAT I DON’T EVER USE THE LORD’S NAME IN VAIN

AND I HAVEN’T ALWAYS TURNED TO THE GOOD BOOK WHEN IN PAIN

 

BUT NOW WHEN I DO READ THE BIBLE I HEAR YOUR VOICE AND THAT’S COOL

THANKS DAD FOR SHOWING IN YOUR ACTIONS,  GOD’S LOVE POOL

 

WE ALL NEED TO JUST JUMP IN AND SPLASH FOR AWHILE

LIFE DOESN’T HAVE TO BE DIFFICULT, JUST LEAN ON HIM AND SMILE

 

NOW FOR SOME REASON WHEN I SEE THE MOON IN THE SKY AT NIGHT

I THINK OF MY EARTHLY DAD WITH MY HEAVENLY FATHER AND THAT’S OUTTA

SIGHT.

Twins Likely Will Host All-Star Game With No Starters

It's a shame, but the Minnesota Twins will not have any starters in the American League lineup when they host the 85th All-Star game at Target Field next month.  No Twin is close to gaining a spot and two are deserving in my opinion

Big Papi Continues to Hammer Twins Pitching

I realize hindsight is 20/20 and Twins General Manager Terry Ryan probably cringes every time David Ortiz comes to town with the Boston Red Sox.  After watching Ortiz smack two home runs for the second straight game against his former club I couldn't resist going down memory lane and remembering when he was a young Twin

Vikings Draft Grade, What Do You Think ?

I don't pretend to be any sort of a NFL draft guru.  What I'd like to find out here is what grade you would give the Vikings on their recent draft.  Mel Kuiper is considered by many to be THE expert on this topic and he gave Minnesota a B- in his grading of their draft efforts

One of God’s Greatest Gifts, Mom

Mother's day is Sunday, supposedly her special time. I say supposedly because it works for this rhyme.

The fishing opener is also this weekend and that's pretty cool in our state.  However there are probably some moms wondering where they rate

We Could’ve Had Johnny Football

I was admittedly disappointed the Minnesota Vikings didn't take Johnny Manziel when they had the opportunity during the first round of the NFL draft last night.  I already wrote about the reasons I would've loved to see Manziel in purple!  I will say they did address a glaring weakness on their team when they picked linebacker Anthony Barr of UCLA

What’s Wrong With Dandelions

I took the picture here of a dandelion, yes a dreaded dandelion that crept into my yard. I generally treat dandelions but really don't want to.  I don't want my neighbor's beautiful yard to have the nasty dandelion head it's way so I'll be spraying the few found in my yard this week
