(2 Timothy 3:16-17)
'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'
Happy Father’s Day to all of the brothers, uncles, stepfathers, adopted Big Daddies and super fathers. You are our beloved men both young and old-standing in the gap for us: your children, loved ones and many others that depend and count on you!
Thank you for providing the needed support and love on those countless occasions…Yes, we know without a doubt that you like our Heavenly Father are a present help! Take a look in the mirror and confidently realize that you are an awesome help especially when we are experiencing hardships, moments of being left out in the rain, waiting in the corridors confused, perplexed, and seemingly abandoned.
Like the countless nights you patiently sat between the door and the phone anticipating our return home; greeting us with a firm scolding.
When you gave your last few dollars, knowing full well a paycheck was weeks away;
When you told us so and reminded us that you weren’t surprised with the outcome;
When you planted that kissed on our foreheads, hugged our shoulders and encouraged us to be calm and not utter a word;
When we made that dreaded phone call and got a surprising conversation that changed our outlook and lifted our spirits;
When you sat on the floor with the other parents as we served you Peanut Stew and recited our poems;
When we felt embarrassed by your school visit, but later appreciated how you demonstrated your concern by your active involvement.
Oh the gratitude list grows moment by moment. You are doing an exemplary job! Thank you for being a steady stream, an anchor and our strength! We praise God for your wonderful presence. May you continue to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit! Remember God has a plan for you, the Holy Scripture says so!
