the love of a father....

"May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word." 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

By now, most of you have seen the special photo of father and son after the nail-biting Clemson win.  As a family member, i can verify this photo could have just as easily been taken after last year's gut-wrenching loss. The dedication and support of father is unswerving and unshakable whatever the outcome.  

Through the victories, defeats, heartaches, trials, accomplishments, dreams and mistakes, Bill's fatherly love for Cannon is solid and unshakable, an iron-clad safety net at all times. But as awesome as being united as 1981 and 2017 National Champions on the field, being united as believers in Christ with the promise of eternal life is even better.
How blessed to have the unconditional love of a father through all our wins and losses in life.  And we do!  As believers, our heavenly Father coos, woos, defends, cheers, corrects and loves us in all circumstances.  Nothing that touches us escapes His ever-present Hand and Heart.

What great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

Oh how sweet the love experienced when we win, but oh how much sweeter our Daddy's love in all seasons. 

we are loved and chosen by God,
