My Dad is My Example
There are many examples to follow in life, many men who are deserving of praise. Whether doctors, or lawyers, or soldiers of war -- they've given in so many ways.
But of all the men who've accomplished it all-- of all the great leaders we've had-- not one will ever begin to compare with the example I've had in my dad. He's taught me his values, he's raised me with love, he's always shown me his respect; and though his name may never appear in bright lights, he's one man you'd never forget. My dad is my leader, my pattern for life, and on him I can surely depend. For i know he will be there with arms open wide to be my example -- my friend.
-- Amt Matayo
You've given so much, Dad... You've blessed my life. And on your birthday, I want you to know that I love you... that I'm greatful for the example you have been to me.
"...he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord..." Genesis 18:19
