I want to honor my Dad this Father's Day by sharing with those that did not get a chance to know or meet him. His name was Darel Engleka. He lived a beautiful life through the Lord Jesus Christ. In his example and leadership on this earth he still has all faithful childern (Mi'chal, Cybil, & Sean-Robert) including his son-in-law Steven Harvey. He was a great man that loved and cherished my mother, Cheryl Engleka.
He retired from the military as a Major in the Airforce serving this Christian country for 26 years. He continued working as a civilian Orthopedic PA in Arlington, Tx for the Arlington Orthopedic Associates. When he was not working at his job he was always working on something whether it was to help the family or church family. During his spare time he like to be around nature by hunting or fishing but mostly hunting. He was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan! He loved John Wayne, Rocky, and Clint Eastwood movies. He only listened to oldies music. He played and umped baseball through out his life. He would only buy Toyota trucks, he said they always out lived the other vehicles.
He is my Father and missed by many!! His death at 52 was so young but only strengthed my family!
I am so blessed to have been loved so much by a man that put the Lord first in his life! And I am even more blessed that my Mom is still here for me and my family because she too has been a strong light in our family to putting our Lord first!
Thank you for letting me share and learning a part of me and my family!!
My family and I had a wonderful time at the Scarborourgh's house for our group's bible study! We talked about how God places importance on things and one of those is singing and making melody with your heart! We did that very thing and the singing truly brought the words to life in my heart! =o)
As a side note some people wanted my Pineapple Casserole recipe here it is.
2 big cans of pineapple chunks (not crushed)
1/2 cup of pineapple juice (use the juice from the pineapple can)
6 tbsp of flour
3/4 cups of sugar
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1 sleeve of ritz crackers
1 stick of unsalted butter
*Mix flour, juice, sugar, and pineapple chunks together. Top with cheese, ritz crackers crumbled, and pour all of the melted butter on top of the ritz. Put in oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
I was very proud of my little girl's first visit to the denist. She did everything she was told and was not afraid! The dentist and the dental hygentist said she was a great helper and patient!
And she left with a smile and no cavities! The little things that make us happy. =o)
Before this event my mom sent me a video of a child that had just come out of surgery on his teeth. Check it out it is Hilarious and kind of sad at the same time.
Haley's cousin, Emily, is four years old. Today she had heart surgery to put a balloon in the hole of her heart. Today's surgery went well but there is a chance that they may have to do many more if the balloon does not fix the complete problem! Please keep her in your prayers that she recovers fast and that the balloon does what it is supose to! Thank you!
