Edwin Happy Fathers Day Card for my Dad and a little story

Magnolia's Edwin Is this your Egg Stamp
Happy Father's Day card for my Dad.

The reason I chose this image is because, when my Dad was a little boy he was playing preacher and baptized 12 of my Grandma's (his Mom) little baby chicks and well....sent them on to Heaven :O) Everyone knows this story about my Dad, and I guess it destined my Dad to be a Minister. He was a Minister for over 40 years.

Close up

Verse...I love this poem...and thought I would go ahead a print it here for you in case you might want to use it too!!!


“What makes a Dad”
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle’s flight,
The joy of a morning spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patients of eternity,
The depth of family need,
Then God combined the qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His master piece was complete,
And so,
He called it…Dad
