Old School Friday Happy Father's Day Weekend!

FRIDAY, FRIDAY, FRIDAY!! There is a beautiful breeze out and it is Father's Day weekend! My dad, Samuel Thomas Spencer went on to be with the Lord in 1999. My maternal grandfather, Caldwell Marion Middleton went on to be with the Lord in 1980. My paternal grandfather, Rufus E. Spencer also went on to be with the Lord in 1980 (I was not close with my paternal grandfather, but to the best of my knowledge he passed on in 1980). I pray that all of these men are Resting In Peace and are communing with the Heavenly Father.

As I have posted numerous times on my blogs, when I think of my father, the sound track is always Gil Scott-Heron most notably "Your Daddy Loves You"! When grandaddy comes to mind I always think of the song "Jesus is Love" by the Commodores! Unfortunately I have no memories that are accompanied by music when it comes to my paternal grandfather because he was hospitalized for many years and I only remember him in a hospital bed.

Today I am going to highlight songs that I am attributing to my Father and Grandfather, songs that I like to think they would sit in a swing and listen to as they relax in a cool summer breeze.

Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay - Otis Redding



Summer Breeze - The Isley Brothers


Still Waters Run Deep - The Four Tops


Summertime - Billie Holiday


To ALL the Fathers that are still with us Have an AWESOMELY BLESSED FATHER'S DAY! Remember YOU are the EXAMPLE of manliness in some boys life, act accordingly! For those who have already gone on I pray that you are resting with the Angels (Or doing the Cupid Shuffle with Jesus!)!!

Be Blessed All!!

Hug a Father Today!
