    No matter how old I get, my parents provide me with that safe space and I know I can count on them no matter what. Loved your letter 🙂

    What a beautiful and thoughtful letter – also reminding us of the real Father from whom all fatherhood is derived. Thanks to God for Fathers.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Zim!
      Actually the letter was written for my heavenly Father! I am thankful for a Father who loves all of us unconditionally! Thanks for your kind words.

      • Zim says:

        L.o.l….somehow I interpreted it as written to both. My Sunday School kids wanted to know why we observe Father’s day in church since it is secular. I told them that it’s because it is pointing us to the ultimate Father – from whom all Fatherhood is derived.

  10. Sounds like you have an amazing father who really did a great job guiding you to have a deep faith of your own.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi Jen,
      I do have an awesome Father! He’s a good, good, Father who gave His very life for me. He guides me everyday to do His will and I love Him so much!

  12. It is nice to know that the God of the universe loves and cares for us. And that he has loved us since the beginning. That is a very comforting thought.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, David!
      It is a comforting thought to know how much we are loved. Happy Father’s day to you and I hope you had a wonderful day! It isn’t easy being a single parent, but there is no doubt you are a GREAT dad! Blessings to you!

  13. This is a touching letter. Thanks for sharing something so personal!
