Sheltering Through Generations

I love my father as the stars - he's a bright shining example and a happy twinkling in my heart. ~Terri Guillemets

There's three
These Fathers of my heart
Gifts from above
Blessings I count

The first, my own
Walking the integrity path
Blanketing love
Daddy I call him
Daddy still

The second, I chose
Daddy for my girls
Walking the integrity path
Blanketing love
Daddy they call him
Daddy still

The third, I prayed for
Daddy for grands
Walking the integrity path
Blanketing love
Daddy they call him
And always will

Like three children of old
Refusing to bow
Furnace of integrity their path
Yet obeying the Lord
And then they see Him--not three but four

These fathers of mine
Have the fourth on their path
Giving them wisdom, guarding their steps
The fourth is their "Abba"
Heavenly Daddy, Heavenly love
