Fathers, We Honor You...

Sunday, June 17, 2007

Today is a special day to honor our father's. This day is for husbands, brother's, uncles, grandfather's and son's. It is a day that is dedicated to every man who has become a father to a child. It is also a day that we honor our One True Father, Our Lord. Without Him, we would be nothing.

The Most Important Thing A Father Can Do
“The most important thing a father can do for his children...is to love their mother.”
~Theodore Hesburgh

What Makes A Dad
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... "DAD!"

For My Daddy
Walk a little slower Daddy, said a child so small,
I'm following in your footsteps and I don't want to fall.
Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they're hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I'm all grown up,
You're what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who'll want to follow me.
And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true,
So walk a little slower,
Daddy, For I must follow you."

A Wise Father
"It is a wise father that knows his own child."
~ William Shakespeare

"The greatest gift a father can give his children is himself."
~ Author Unknown
