My Father, My Friend
© Peggy Stewart
For my father, my friend,
This to me you have always been.
Through the good times and the bad,
Your understanding I have had.
A gentle man at heart,
This sets you apart
From the others I’ve seen.
You mean so much to me.
The laughter we have shared
Cannot be compared.
The tears I have shed,
As you lovingly nodded your head.
You have always been there,
With a smile and a hug,
A precious gift from our God up above.
The times that I have been down and sad,
Your silly ways could always make me glad.
You gave me strength to carry on,
Even when all hope seemed to be gone.
The lessons in life that I have learned
Are from your genuine love and concern.
With deep appreciation for all you have done.
Are my number one.
With all my love, Your Daughter, Your Friend
Prayer for Trinity Sunday
who made the heavens and earth
We are Your children,
and we are in awe of all you have made.
Christ the Son, our Redeemer and Savior,
You lived and died for us all
You live again,
and have prepared the way for us.
Holy Spirit, the Sustainer,
You move in us and among us
We follow Your wisdom
and feel Your presence.
God, Triune, Three-in-one,
help us to know You more fully.
Guide us in this time of worship. Amen.
