Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today I would like to wish my precious Dad a Happy Birthday! His nickname is "Gentle Ben". And he truly has been a gentleman! (Although his Amish upbringing would deny such "airs".) What I remember most about my Dad when I was growing up was his quiet, gentle strength. I always felt safe in his care. And he was very hardworking and steadfast in his provision for our family. Thank you once again, Dad! You set the example in your faith, gentleness, and example of serving God!
God's blessings on you today!!
