Today JA Elementary School had a pancake breakfast to honor veterans. Zion (my nephew) choose to honor my father (Sgt. Harper L) because he is a Vietnam War Veteran. It was such an humbling experience. I was proud that MY father was a veteran. I was proud of his E5 Rank. I was very proud of his purple heart received. I love my father and I wanted to write a blog to honor him. He is a REAL man of GOD. He has worked extremely hard throughout the years to be the most outstanding husband, father, and grandfather. He has surpassed our expectations by far. I am proud to call him MY DADDY. I know I have not always shown the appreciate I should growing up, but I pray that my actions as an adult have conveyed my sincere admiration for him. We should always take time to honor our parents while they are alive.

Deuteronomy 5:16 Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God commanded you, [ Deuteronomy 4:40] that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.

Well Dad, we honor you everyday.. Thank you for all that you have done..

Here is Zion’s Short speech at school this morning..

P.S.There is a buzz noise because someone sent me a text while I was recording.
