June is a month of many activities! Graduations, weddings, summer fun, Father's Day, Flag Day and the First Day of Summer! Vacations start, children are out of school and riding their bikes, playing sports, catching lightening bug and seeing many beautiful creatures of God; butterflys, birds of all kinds, dogs, cats, baby pups and kittens, baby lambs and calves, ponys and bugs of all kinds. How many of these things do we see as adults? Do we take the time to look around us and see the beauty God has placed on this earth for us?
Thanks goes out to all who voted for Foxysden this last month - we are #1 League for May!!!
The Best of the Best!!!
We have some special Father's Day poems and writings from our Den I would like to share with you.
Thank you Lord For My Father
written by Clara
My dad was the most humble man I ever knew.
He was one of eleven children
Who knew when and what to do and not to do.
A man of few words, when he spoke, you knew he meant it too.
Loved the country and land he tilled and waited for the crops to grow to the multitude.
In turn thanked God for its reward that brought us our life and attitude.
Lived a life of love and God, wife, children and never knew him to ever be rude.
Thank you Lord for my father!!!

I MISS YOU FATHER
MORE THEN WORDS CAN SAY
YOU TAUGHT ME MANY THINGS
HONOR, LOVE TRUTHFULLNESS
RESPECT FOR OTHERS,NATURE
AND ABOVE ALL GOD
FOR ALL THE TIMES I MISSED
FOR THE TIME I DISAPPOINTED
YOU STOOD BY MY DECISION
FOR THROUGH I WANDERED FROM SEA TO SEA
YOUR WORDS AND MEMORIES NEVER LEFT ME
I HONOR THE HERITAGE LEFT TO ME
AND THE BURDENS I MUST BEAR
YOU PREPARED ME FOR THE LIFE
I LEAD AND WHAT I MUST UNDERTAKE
SO FATHER I'M SORRY
FOR ALL YOU WENT THROUGH
FOR NOW I'M A MAN AND A LUCKY MAN YOU SEE
TO HAVE HAD A FATHER LIKE YOU

TO MY DAD
written by Connie
YOU WERE MY DAD
WHO WAS LOVING AND KIND
YOU OFTEN KNEW WHAT I HAD
ON MY MIND YOU LISTENED, SUGGESTED,
AND SOMETIMES DEFENDED.
MY DAD YOU ARE ONE OF MY
VERY BEST FRIENDS!
YOU WERE PROUD
OF MY TRIUMPHS
AND WHEN I NEEDED YOU MOST YOU
WERE HELPFUL AND STRONG BUT
MY DAD YOU DID NOT BOAST.
IN ALL THAT YOU DID DAD LOVE
PLAYED A PART THERE'S
ALWAYS A PLACE FOR YOU
IN MY HEART.
AND AS EACH YEAR PASSES I'M EVEN
MORE GLAD, MORE GRATEFUL AND
PROUD JUST TO CALL YOU MY DAD!
HAPPY FATHERS DAY
Letter To Dad
written by Gillian
When I was asked to write something about you for Father’s Day I wasn’t going to do it at first because you weren’t around when I was growing up. But, the more I thought about what could possibly be said, I realized that even though we were apart you did give me something. So that’s what this is all about.
You see, dad, the first thing you gave me was life. Without you and mom I wouldn’t be here. Mom always said how talented you were, which brings me to the second thing you gave, your talent. You see dad that brilliant artist and musician mom always said you were, well, guess what, I inherited them from you. While I can’t draw as well as you did, I’m great with colors. As for the musical part, hubby says I have a great ear for music. Those steel drums that you played, he taught me a song I’ve always wanted to learn, and is surprised at how quickly I picked it up, and remembered it lol.
So, on the day that we honor our fathers, thank you for the legacy you left behind. I now have something to pass on to future generations. I love you dad.
