In Daddy’s Shoes

Fatherhood is probably one of the hardest roles to
fulfill. That's why it's so important to thank those dads who have hung
in there and are committed to raising their children. A dad is a son’s
first hero and a daughter’s first love. With gentle strength and
quiet pride a dad helps navigate his offspring through life's passages.
His self-concern is set aside. He is the protector and provider. With
the strength of a mountain
and the comforting arm of night he calms and carries us through the
storms in our lives.
Dad is always the last for a new pair of
shoes, his family and others come first. He has your back when it comes
to getting children out of
jams, like the four year old bringing her collection of bugs inside the
house and letting them loose. He scrambles to help her catch them all
before mom gets home. It’s the little things that make dads heroes;
helping us tie our shoe, our first bike ride, driving lessons when mom
says “she would rather give birth on a crowded bus,”
than teach the teens to drive.
And money doesn’t make him happy, his
children not wanting money makes him happy. He is your biggest fan and
loudest cheerleader at
your games. Thank you, Dad, for the tender discipline. For understanding
the key is knowing when to give children a hand, and when to stand back.
Our children have been loaned to us temporarily, for the purpose of
loving them, and instilling a foundation of values on which their
future lives will be built. We will be accountable through eternity for
the way we discharge that responsibility .Today, when the slogan seems
to be “Siring many, raising few,” the greatest
gift to the world is fathers in the lives of their children.
righteous man walks in his integrity. His children are blessed after
him”. Proverbs 20 :7
Happy Father’s Day!
