Words From Our Director
Happy Father’s Day!
I know this month we will celebrate this special day with our dads. For the first time in 63 years, I will not be going to Dad’s on Father’s Day. Instead, I will probably visit his grave. Dad went to Heaven in November and my father in law passed away in October. This Father’s Day will be different in the Wood’s home.
Thankfully, I was raised by a Godly dad who was a Baptist minister. When I read Psalm 1, I think of Dad. The Psalmist said, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law doeth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” One of the highest compliment a dad could ever get is for someone to say your life has been like what the Psalmist described as a Godly man. Your greatest legacy is not your land, bank account, stocks, your status at the club, but rather as the widow told Elisha as she spoke of her husband, “Thou knowest that thy servant did fear the Lord.” Your greatest legacy is being the Godly husband, father, grandfather, uncle, neighbor, or person you can be!
Today, our NCBCH representative just left our office after coming to collect SMBA donations. He commended SMBA for their support of the children’s homes through their donations of gift cards, money and food. He told me that SMBA gave more than associations that are much larger than us. We give God all praise and thank you all so much for your support of such a great cause!
Bless you All –
