“As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him”
Hello dear friends! In honor of Father’s Day this coming Sunday I wanted to update a post from several years ago that you probably haven’t read, it was early in my blogging journey. I am so grateful to have my precious Daddy still with us at 88 years of age. He is such a joy and has a mind that is so sharp with his quick wit and humor still being the best…I love to see him laugh. You can read his story here and it is a story that is worth your reading.
Daddy had been saving for months. He walked many miles along the streets of our hometown delivering mail so that he could make that big purchase…a RCA Victor console stereo. To a six year old, that beautiful mohagony cabinet that played music was magical! When that delivery arrived from Ross-Grambling Furniture, we all gathered around and admired the lovely wood cabinet that added character to the 1960’s decor of our little house! Not only was it a nice furniture addition, but the beautiful sounds that came from its speakers filled the entire house!
The music playing was my Daddy’s music-the music of his generation…”back when music was music” as he often says.
