I wanted to share some great quotes with you for Father’s Day…
One night a father overheard his son pray: “Dear God, make me the kind of man my Daddy is!”
Later that night, the Father prayed, “Dear God, Make me the kind of man my son wants me to be.” ~ Unknown
By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong ~ Charles Wadsworth
An effective father devotes himself to become an instrument and model of human experience to his children…accepts and affirms his children for who they are, appreciates them for what they are accomplishing, and covers them with affection because they are his. ~ Gordon MacDonald
To be in your children’s memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today ~ Barbara Johnson
The test of man’s faith is not in what he believes but what manner of man, what manner of husband, and what manner of father he becomes as a result. ~ R. Robert Flatt
My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard.
Mother would come out and say, ‘You’re tearing up the grass.’
‘We’re not raising grass,’ Dad would reply. ‘We’re raising boys.’
~ Harmon Killebrew
My Dad is a mender of toys, a leader of boys; changer of fuses,
a healer of bruises; a mover of couches, a healer of ouches;
a hanger of screens, a counselor of teens; a pounder of nails,
a teller of tales; a dryer of dishes, a fulfiller of wishes.
~ JoAnn Heid
“Honor your father…”
Whether you had a great father, a mediocre one, an abusive one, or none at all, I wish you to know the gentle, caring love of your Heavenly Father. He’s the best ever! Sit in His lap and let Him tell you how much He loves you.
“Consider the kind of extravagant love the Father has lavished on us—He calls us children of God! It’s true; we are His beloved children.” 1 John 3:1a The Voice
