Remembering a great Dad on Father's Day

Paul Milton Witmer, my Dad, grew up on a farm. After he married, he became a farmer too. He also had a heart that longed after God. When I was very young, he was ordained to the ministry in the Mennonite church. I loved hearing him preach! He sold the farm in the 60's and worked as an auto mechanic and a preacher.

 We never had much in the way of material things.  But one thing for sure, I never doubted that I was loved.....ever! 

Daddy has been enjoying heaven since Oct. 1, 2009. I miss him. But, what wonderful memories he has left with us!

Treasures are not always things. Today I hold in my heart many treasures.....my memories.

Never doubting we were loved, not ever - that's probably one of the richest treasures he gave us. That, and the example of passion for God. We are so blessed.
