Word of the Day... June 16, 2013

See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.  Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 1 John 3:1-3
On this Father’s Day I hope that all of you who are lucky enough to have your father in your life, that you tell him that you love and appreciate him.

A Father is a very special gift from the Lord.  Anyone can have a baby, but it takes a very special man to be a father.  He is the one who takes you to the park and helps you to go down that slide the first time, and you reluctantly close your eyes and slide counting on the fact that he will be at there to catch you.

A Father is the one who holds you tightly at night when you have the worst nightmares and looks under the bed and in the closet to make sure all the monsters are gone.
A Father is someone who wipes the tears from your eyes when your heart has been broken and gives you the best advice on how to get through it.

If you are one of the lucky ones you have your Father there on your wedding day to walk you down the aisle at church and give you away to the man of your dreams.

I lost my Father when I was only nineteen and I still miss him.  But I do have the hope that I will see him again someday in heaven. But I am not alone here.  I have my heavenly Father who has seen me through everything in my life.  He has never left me or forsaken me and for that I am eternally grateful.

I hope all of you have a very Happy Father’s Day!!!
