Happy Father's Day

Alfred "Mike" Michaelson
Kurt, Dad, and Karl - 1989

This is a really old photo from 1989, when my brother and I tested for our 1st degree black belts. Dad, was a third degree blact belt then. Though my brother and I don't practice anymore, Dad is still kickin' away.

Jesus Christ is a reflection of God the Father, who did and spoke only those things which He saw His Father do. Likewise, my brother and I, are a reflection of our father, and my brother's children are a reflection of him. In my brother and my father, I can see a reflection of God in both of these men because...
  • He is a father who is protective of his children and will at any cost, sacrifice even his own life, so they could live and not die.
  • He is a father who exemplifies a loving care, responsibility, respect, strength, discipline, dedication, diligence and pride in his work. Traits that he desires for his own children to exemplify to his own children and toward others.
  • He is a father who, when asked, willingly shares his wisdom with his children, who listen to his instruction and treasure his knowledge.
  • He is a father who is like a teacher, wanting his students to excel beyond what he has accomplished, mulitplying his knowledge and wisdom into others.
  • He is a father who will never leave his children, nor forsake them.
  • He is a father who, when his children are weak, his strength is made perfect in their weakness.
  • He is a father who replaces any fear with his courage, for their is nothing to fear when they are with their father and in his protective custody.
  • He is a father who lifts up his children when they fall, helping his children get up again.
  • He is a father whose grandchildren are his crowning glory, whose children are his pride.
  • He is a father who walks in integrity and his children are favored greatly after him.
  • He is a father who encourages his children with his spoken word, encouraging them toward achieving the goal to which they have set out to accomplish.
  • He is a father who demonstrates his love toward us, that even when his children have done wrong, he continues to love them and wants to give his very best to them.
  • He is a father who loves unconditionally and would not let anything separate him from his love for his children.
  • He is a father who is well pleased in his beloved children.
  • He is a father who loves his children, as God has loved His Son, Jesus Christ.
Happy Father's Day, to my Father and my Brother.

With love,


So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Genesis 1:27

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before God made anything at all and is supreme over all creation.
Colossians 1:15
