Happy Birthday, Dad!

 Happy Birthday, Dad!

You are a wonderful Daddy to me, Father-In-Law to Heather, and Grandpa to our children.  Our whole family as well as our extended family loves you and Mom dearly.  And we hope God gives you many more blessed birthdays to come. 

Thank you for being a great example to us and for causing us to want to follow you in so many ways but also as you follow Christ.  Thank you for being a hard worker, a faithful and caring husband, a beloved and wise father, a Spirit-led elder Christian, a classy gentleman, a genius mechanic, and a jack-of-all-trades.  Thanks for fearing God and for being passionate for the "old paths" of holiness.

Normally, I haven't been posting for other family member's special occasions.  But I wanted to post these sharp pictures of you and Mom in your handsome Model T. 

With much love,
Phillip and family

The Best Education Textbook In Early America...

"In contemplating the political institutions of the United States, I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government. That is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by the means of the Bible."
- Benjamin Rush, “A Defense of the Use of the Bible as a School Book”, 1798
