My Man Card
I’m sure this title will stir a few eyebrows. I’ve started a new devotion “Living & Finishing Well” by Ken Boa. One of the exercises challenged me to write out my Man Card. I’m sharing that with you today. As I've shared before I had the wonderful blessing of having a father that was my best friend. The pictures are of him 50 years ago and me today.
Happy Father’s Day to all you Dads.
