Father's Day




"There are three things that will endure 
- faith, hope, and love - 
and the greatest of these is love."
                                           1 Corinthians 13:13





To have an earthly father who does his best is a wonderful blessing,
to know our heavenly Father loves us perfectly is the greatest of all.




 Following Father's Day gifts we headed to our church on the hill (today is Father's Day in Australia).
 There were even more kangaroos than usual in the church grounds today.







 Master J loves to fly his planes before and after church, a sight which many enjoy watching.










A quiet afternoon brought a little time to potter in the garden, weeding, enjoying the flowers and being grateful for all life's blessings, including fathers who are still with us and those who have gone before us.

Very important to celebrate the important people in our life, especially the ones that love us :) The emotions in your first picture will last a lifetime. My 24-year-old daughter has a picture like that with her grandfather and it still has a place on her bedroom shelf today!

Thank you so much for being so wonderfully helpful and generous in sharing your macro details with me, much appreciated!

Thanks for your pictures and thoughts on Father's Day. For some reason I thought about you (and we've never even met!) on my way home from church. Hope it is a great day of being with those who are special to you!

Oh what a fun experience..kangaroos going to church ;) awesome... hope Father's day was filled with love and hope.

MaryL said...

Such beautiful photography as always!! I am struck by how common place some animals and birds are to the natural habitat and then are seen as very exotic to so many others! How cool to experience wild kangaroos!!

I love the look of J's face as miss 'E' is helping to carry the plane :)

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Looks like a blessed day! Those flowers at the end of the post are wonderfully composed and the light is phenomenal!

Dave said...

It was Fathers Day here too Karen, and I was spoiled. I enjoyed all of the photos in this blog, and was specially interested to see the kangaroos so prominent - Dave
