The Best Father’s Day Gift I’ve Ever Given

Sunday June 19, 2011

Technically, this should be the post about the wonderful Dad in my life  — either my own, or my beloved husband.   Both are quite stellar and I am so thankful for them.   Unfortunately, it’s late at night and my creative juices are running low, so  instead, I’m sharing about the gift I gave  the wonderful father of my children.

I confess, I was so excited when I thought of this idea for Father’s Day.   I’d been on the hunt for a while for a good ceramic mug for him, something that’s harder to find than you’d think.

I finally found someone on Etsy who had what I was looking for, with the ability to print a custom message.    And I knew just what I wanted it to say.

#2 Dad

I wanted to spoof the stereotypical “#1 Dad” type mugs that out there as well as point out that we have a heavenly Dad who loves us better than any earthly dad ever could.   The verse on the mug is 1 John 3:1, and it reads:

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

Mike is an excellent father.  And the main reason is because he parents from the wisdom, strength and grace supplied by his Heavenly Father.   Knowing God intimately is what makes Mike the man and dad that he is.

In addition to the pithy front, the backside of the mug features the mugs of our adorable progeny.


I was quite proud of my creation and pleased that my hubby loved it too.

So, happy Father’s Day, dear!   You are by far the best #2 Dad our kids could ever hope to have!

    Ok, I understand why you didn’t do this post before Father’s day and ruin the surprise, but it would have helped the rest of out. 🙂 Please remind of us of this next year (when there is still plenty of time to order it).
