A Father's Love

George Strait-"A Love Without End, Amen":

I got sent home from school one day with a shiner on my eye 
Fighting was against the rules and it didnt matter why 
When Dad got home I told that story just like Id rehearsed 
Then stood there on those trembling knees and waited for the worst 

And he said, Let me tell you a secret, about a fathers love 
A secret that my daddy said was just between us 
He said daddies dont just love their children every now and then 
It's a love without end, amen, its a love without end, amen 

When I became a father in the spring of 81 
There was no doubt that stubborn boy was just like my fathers son 
And when I thought my patience had been tested to the end 
I took my daddys secret and I passed it on to him 


And I said, Let me tell you a secret, about a fathers love 
A secret that my daddy said was just between us 
I said daddies dont just love their children every now and then 
It's a love without end, amen, its a love without end, amen 

Last night I dreamed Id died and stood outside those pearly gates 
When suddenly I realized there must be some mistake 
If they knew half the things I've done theyll never let me in 
Then somewhere from the other side I heard those words again 

And they said, Let me tell you a secret, about a fathers love 
A secret that my daddy said was just between us 
You see daddies dont just love their children every now and then 
It's a love without end, amen, its a love without end, amen

One of my all-time favorite songs. Many of my thoughts have been centered on "A Father's Love" today.  There really is nothing in the world like the love of a Daddy. Or the love of our Father in Heaven.  
It's a love without end, amen, its a love without end, amen

I have always loved that song...it is a classic! It's interesting because the way Heavenly Father parents us, his children, is our model for parenting. I think that's what George is sayin! I loved all those pictures of Tyler...he is such a sweet dad and husband! You are a lucky girl! P.S. I'll blog recipes soon! Love ya!
