Ephesians 6:4 – “Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.”
Hi Dad. I just wanted to drop a few paragraphs and take a moment of your time to share a few thoughts with you about your special day. I felt obligated to reach out to you before you bask in the festivities of being a patriarch and constant provider. You don’t have to tell me that being a dad is an arduous job. Whether in masculine or feminine form, a dad’s work is never done and most likely taken for granted more than ever these days. There are those that still manage to pay their child support on time and make the time to attend graduations,birthdays, and family gatherings to wind up still catching hell in return.
Also there are many dads that are left struggling to make ends meet in this terrible economy and managing to feed their seeds the best way they can albeit legal or bordering a lengthy prison sentence. Our divine grind has been imbedded in us from the very essence. And our Heavenly Father has taken great precision in creating us and reflecting His divinely attributes.
I know that one day isn’t enough to celebrate our accomplishments and triumphs, however it does feel great to feel appreciated even if its only for a weekend filled with barbecues,six packs, and funny neckties. I’m proud of you fellas, because I know you’re doing the best you can to make a difference in the lives of your offspring and other fathers children. And it doesn’t have to take a paternity test on Maury to prove that your were a “real man” all along.
I would like to urge you to keep your head up and allow God to lead and strengthen you during the most difficult times. Our egos tend to make us believe that we can do everything by ourselves and that is the furthest thing from the truth. We must humble ourselves and pray for God to direct our path to give us the wisdom to govern our heart, homes, and children.
There are many wonderful dads that are no longer here with us and soldiers that are on the front lines with photos of their kids in the pockets of their uniforms anxious to return home in one piece to find peace. So to all of you shining examples of dads out there, have a Happy Father’s Day and please make sure someone save you the big piece of chicken because you deserve it!
