I have a father in heaven, but God gave me an earthly father as well. My father was loving and there for me and my brother, Alan, always; though he was not perfect, only God is.
No father is always right. They do the best they can on this earth.
Not all dads love their children; that is sad. A father is a role model for his children. Take time out to be with them and have some fun. Fathers should be hard workers to provide a roof over the head of their families, keep them secure and safe and above all love their families unconditionally.
Some children suffer when their fathers leave their home, that’s a “shame on you.”
My father was a role model for us children, and he loved us. He was a Catholic, he had one woman in his life, my mother. He loved my mother until the day of her death. He did not believe in divorce but got one anyway. He continued to be friends with my mother.
On Sundays we still had our family meals together, mom, dad and us kids, even after the divorce. He told us, children to make sure your children are in church, keep them safe and raise them up under God’s commandments. God commands us to honor our fathers and mothers, to respect them at all times.
If your father is still with you on this earth, be sure to tell him just how much you love him this Father’s Day. Tomorrow is not a promised day, so tell your loved ones each and every day how much you love them.
