Appreciating My Father

I like to listen to podcasts on my cell phone during my daily commute and today I happened to listen to a speech by David Meece which was actually posted on 19th and 20th August (my birthday).

David Meece is an award-winning singer & composer (Just look for David Meece on Youtube to hear some of his songs.) But for years he struggled with his alcoholic father's last words to him, "You're worthless!"

My sister and I are so blessed that my father was a good father who loved and cared for his children. This podcast reminded me to be thankful for God's blessing through my father.

Listen to David Meece's incredible story [Part 1, 19th August] [Part 2, 20th August]. (Be prepared for tears! It's a very touching story.)
