A Father’s Day Concept

Are you a Dad? 

*several of my viewers are men, which I always find a bit surprising since I really just ramble about family, love, and schooling, but hey, I have a house full of boys so I guess it’s not all that odd, eh?

So I recently was listening to a sermon.  It was all about Dad’s.  Responsibilities, their influence, the challenges, etc…

And as I recognize that Father’s Day is just around the corner, I pondered just what could possibly be the best Father’s Day present ever?

Well the ultimate gift truly comes from the FATHER himself, our Lord God Almighty.

Eternal Life with Him through his beloved Son…

So on this Father’s Day I challenge all you dads!
to not to expect to receive (stuff),
but instead give your own ultimate gift…
let your kids know on a personal level that they are the gift.
That like us (with our Father in Heaven),
they don’t have to be perfect,
they are loved just as they are,
that their presence in your life is a blessing.

On this Day you have the power to lift your child(ren) up
and recognize the gift that they already are.

Ephesians 3:17-20

17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,

18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people,
to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—
that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.


HAPPY FATHER’S DAY  to my husband!
Thank you for your boldness for righteous things,
for being an example to our children on how to be in the world, but not of it.
I appreciate your willingness to share your struggles and mistakes along the way,
that our kids can know how to press on when they face similar challenges in life.
I am grateful to have such a dedicated man to my children…
to guide, to correct, to encourage, to strengthen who they are as a person.
May you continue to shine God’s light in all that you do!
