There are millions of dads in this world. Some are great, and some are not. This one is very great.

There are dads who bring you along to every church and work function, just so he can say, “This is my daughter.”

There are dads who encourage you to shoot for the stars – even if “the stars” is just a middle school stage.

There are dads who attend every softball and volleyball game, just because you’re playing.

There are dads who give up their free time in the car to ask you Bible trivia questions, even when it’s late.

There are dads who drive you to school super-early and pick you up super-late, because he knows how important school is to you.

There are dads who play catch with you at the park across the street, even if you miss a few balls…or ten.

There are dads who hug you after you make a mistake, and say, “I’m just happy you’re safe.”

There are dads who let you make mistakes, because they know your life will be better that way.

There are dads who let you ask questions, even if they don’t know the answers.

There are dads who love their wives, and give you an almost impossible standard for your own love someday.

There are dads who are so kind, and wonderful, and better than you ever could ask for or imagine. I have one of those dads. I love you so much, Daddy. Mom has told me several times that I should try to find a man as wonderful as you. I don’t know if I can do it – you’ve set the bar pretty high – but I’ll certainly try my hardest.

I’m your Cinderella, and you’re my hero every day. I love you. So I will dance with Cinderella while she is here in my arms cause I know something the prince never knew. Oh, I will dance with Cinderella I don’t want to miss even one song ‘cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight and she’ll be gone – Steven Curtis Chapman

Happy Father’s Day dad, although you’re not here, I just wanted to say thanks to all the lessons in life you taught and opportunities you put in front of me. The great mystery in life is how they all seem to connect for the good, where the dotted lines are connected by God and faith. On Father’s Day we honor you.

Dad, my cheering section, and coach.

Here’s a poem “My father didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and me watch him do it” by Clarence B. Kelland;  it’s definitely a good example for fathers to follow.

Many times children are raised up by a father who is not their biological father, today we honor these fathers too.  And finally and most importantly,  there’s our heavenly Father, a Father who is perfect, a Father we can worship as compared to our earthly father who we honor.

With His Love, Happy Father’s Day!

It’s all about family helping nurture and loving the children, creating the bond,  the trust bridge that builds future lasting relationships. Thank you dads, brothers, uncles, and friends for the time together!

Happy Father’s Day

The best Father’s Day present is having wonderful kids! 

Here’s a shout and pat on the back to all the fathers out there.

Thanks the lessons in life you shared, your coaching, and for the many experiences you gave us as a child; many times just by watching you. Now, I understand why we had to obey you when we didn’t want to listens, instead wanted to go the other way.  Thank you for being stronger than our disobedience.  When we children we spoke like a child, now with children of our own I understand how your love would serve us well through life’s journey.

Dad, God knows we are not perfect and we had bumps along life roads, that’s not a problem and I forgave you for those like our heavenly father has forgiven us. Those bumps were speed bumps that help us learn through refreshing humility, they made us stronger and all the more wise.

Dad, thanks for all of  life’s good times and sufferings, all these come with a good purpose and a learning experience.

Happy Father’s Day
