This Week...A Celebrations of Fathers and Father-Figures in Our Lives
Let’s not forget that tomorrow is Father’s Day. I often feel sorry for fathers on this day because it seems like mothers get a lot more perks for Mother’s Day.
To be the father of a nation is a great honor, but to be the father of a family is a greater joy. Nelson Mandela
Don’t misunderstand...Mothers deserve all of the honors, accolades, and special treatments we can give them.
It is not flesh and blood, but the heart which makes us fathers and sons. Johann Friedrich von Schiller
But does anyone give a father a rose when they walk into a restaurant on Father’s Day? No...because they’re all out in the heat cooking ribs and steaks on the grill!!
A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society. Billy Graham
Thank you to those fathers and father figures who volunteer their time to coach our future pro-athletes, and to those who spend their weekends pitching tents, building campfires, and teaching survival tactics to rowdy children.
Thank you to those dads who stand strong for us when our own world seems to be crumbling and who stand up to those who would do us harm.
Thank You to fathers and father figures who make sacrifices daily so that their loved ones will have what they need.
He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. Clarence Budington Kelland
Happy Father’s Day to all fathers and father figures!
