Father's Day

Psalms 68:5 (NLT)

Father to the fatherless, defender of widows— this is God, whose dwelling is holy.

Happy Father's Day!

.

I waited to post about Mark Hoverson because it was an emotional one due to it being another 1st since Mark's passing.

.

I miss Mark as a Father SO MUCH.

.

I would be lying if I didn't admit that things are def. a bit more chaotic as a family without the Man of the House around.

But.. I really do have the best kids because they have so much of their dad in them and because they were trained from a young age by Mark.

.

Mark was so great at everything...

BUT...

As a father...

He was EPIC!

.

ORDER. He brought order.

.

FUN. He was amazing at making anything fun.

Whether it be studying something new, doing chores, or reading. He NAILED it.

He could make anything interesting to the kids.

.

WISDOM. He imparted wisdom to the kids in all they did.

Every moment was a teachable moment and Mark did it in a way where the kids ears were ALL ears. ;)

.

We went and visited his grave today.

AS A FAMILY.

For the FIRST time as a Family.

I have taken kids individually but not as a family.

.

Deep breathes were taken and a prayer was said.

.

Isaac, the oldest, played music that Mark would play with the family and tell the meaning behind the song.

Songs from STING (The Last Ship), Frank SINATRA (My Way) and more.

GRACE cried in the background.

.

They miss him.

.

Mark made everything better.

.

Having experienced Mark is better than never having experienced him at all.

.

We were blessed.

.

We are blessed.

.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

.

Because of FAITH we continue on and LIVE even though we know not that plans HE has for us but we know they are plans for good!

.

Grateful to have been given an amazing father and blessed to have been given an amazing father for my children.

.

Mark's Love ran DEEP for his kiddos and it was evident to ALL who knew him.

.
