Brad and I do get compliments about our children. Their behavior, sweet spirit and how obedient and helpful they are. I must attribute a great deal of this to the fact they have a wonderful, godly father. The kids see his many strengths and his weaknesses, making them love him all the more. One thing that is vital in their lives and was in mine was the fact that no matter how bad we were, how hard we didn't work - daddy still loved us!

Daddy not only gave her away but
performed the wedding.
This Hebrew word is complex; quite difficult for us to re evaluate in our minute minds. The Hebrew dictionary says it means “to be heavy, be weighty, be grievous, be hard, be rich, be honorable, be glorious, be burdensome, be honoured.” I like how this author compared the term; "Like a huge boulder in the road, it is something we must make allowance for; Like a heavy weight, it is pressing upon our thoughts; Like something glorious, we have a sense of awe or reverence for the person or thing."

|Felecia Mary's Dedication|
Grandpa dedicating and father
I want to honor my darling husband who was raised by some pretty amazing parents (Ned & Mary Snowden) and my father Rev. Paul F. Gray. It is like a heavy weight that is pressing on my thoughts that does fill my heart with a "sense of awe" and of course reverence. All I have experienced in my own life is sacrifice from these men. Both could have been famous, rich and well known in the fields of their expertise. But, they 'fell in love' with their Saviour (Jesus) and forsook all to follow Him. In so doing, they (Brad and my dad) took us all along a path that has been quite adventurous, fun (sometimes), sad and very educational. I honor YOU! I love you and I thank you. May God fill you and all Father's who have taken this path of serving Christ and as you do serving your family; I bid you all; God's Blessings!
