Dad's Sayings - Happy Father's Day!

In the same way I listed my mom's common sayings for Mother's Day, I made a list of my dad's common sayings:

1. Exercise!!
2. Have role models
3. Are you trying hard enough?
4. Keep trying, even if you fail
5. Don't let your age limit you
6. Give me a back massage
7. His random, spur of the moment lectures that are either boring or motivating..but more of the latter :)

Funny story about the Father's day card - I was creating character caricatures for a work assignment, and one of the characters ended up looking like my dad! So I ended up using it for a Father's Day card ;)

Happy Father's Day!

Inspiration from: The Nameless Collective

Several friends of mine are part of The Nameless Collective - a network that encourages individuals to gather as a community to combine their unique gifts and talents to spread the values of faith, hope, and love to a generation that has been questioned, discouraged, and rejected.

Check out their Friday verses (in wallpaper format for iPhones):

See more on their website, and also check out their store for apparel and stickers!

Seeing stuff like this while surfing on the internet is so encouraging. A small design, illustration, or post can shed so much light.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
- Mathew 5:16

Psalm 42:11

Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again--my Savior and my God! - Psalm 42:11

In Memory of Umgie

After almost fifteen years, Umgie was put to sleep last weekend because of her cancer. It is sad and strange not having her around anymore, and the garden feels empty without her. My family and I keep stepping outside, thinking we'll see her greeting us, only to remember that she is no longer there :'(

Umgie was my first dog, constant companion, and inspiration. An early comic of Umgie I made in 2002:

I am grateful for all the joy she brought me and everyone around her. She is loved, and she will be missed - wrinkles, snorts, smiles and all :)
