When I was growing up one thing that drove me crazy was asking Daddy a question. If I asked a question about History, we had to go to the encyclopedia and look up the answer. If I asked a question about a map, we had to go and get the globe. If I asked how to spell a word or what it meant, we had to go and get the dictionary. But...I learned a lot during those years. The main thing I learned was to ASK MOMA...she'd give me the quick answer I wanted. HA!!!! =D Daddy, I love you TONS and I thank you for being so wise, so educated, and loving Jesus and your family sooo much. Thank you for always being there when I need you. Thank you for your prayers for our family! Thank you for loving my Phillip as your son! I hope that you have a wonderful Father's day! xoxoxo

~In 1995 God gave me another nice Daddy. This is the Daddy of my sweetheart Phillip. Back in 1991 I came to visit God's Bible School and one of my GBS friends and I were looking for a place to sit during lunch. All of the sudden she said, "Let's sit with our new maintenance man and his wife...they are so sweet." That new maintenance man and wife ended up being who I now call "Dad and Mom Dickinson." So, when I came to school in the Fall of 1992 I felt like I knew Dad and would always greet him when I saw him out on campus. He later teased me that I KNEW that he had a son my age who was interested in and was watching me. BUT I DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE! =D I knew he had a younger son, for Michael and I worked together in the kitchen. I'll be FOREVER GRATEFUL that I learned that he did have a son my age!!! =) Dad is one of the most intellegent men I know when he comes to fixing anything...and I mean ANYTHING! I don't know much he can't do. God has really given him a talent. When he was 8 or 9 years old he took the engine out of his family car, fixed it and put it back in. =D Dad, I love you. Thank you for accepting me as your daughter! Have a super Father's day!

~In 1998 God gave Phillip and I a baby. We were soooo happy with our first little baby girl, Kimberly. Since then, God has BLESSED our home with Sarah, Noah, Elijah and baby! =)
Phillip, you are a wonderful Daddy! You love your children more than life itself. Thank you for every diaper you have changed, haircut you have given, outfit you have put on, hug you have given, and prayer you have prayed!
Boys are made of snakes and snails and puppy dog tails.
Our Daddy is made of saws, hammers, and nails.
Reading and studying God's Holy Word each day.
And looking to Jesus for guidance along the way.
Fasting and praying that His children make it to Heaven.

Taking time to read the kids a bed time story.
Bending down to kiss a hurt knee that's gory.
Always loving his children and showing them that he cares.
Being faithful to read the Bible and have family prayers.
Spending family days together and having a great time.
Being the BEST Daddy in the world...as indicated in this ryhme. =)
