Hi! Happy Father’s Day! I hope you’re enjoying it.
This is a picture of the three “men” in my life who make Father’s Day wonderful.
While it’s a day to celebrate my husband and my dad for their unconditional love, sacrifice, strength, and care, it’s a day for all to reflect on creation and the creator. We see His heart with His unrelenting love for us when as a parent He gave the ultimate sacrifice. He let His son go for a big purpose. If you are a parent, you know the anguish of letting go. Sometimes letting go is gradual. Sometimes its sudden.
Even if you still have young children, you’ve let go of them as they have learned to walk, started to dress themselves, gotten on the bus for the first time to go to school, etc. I am so grateful for a loving, all-knowing, all-powerful God and for his letting go.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us….
Then, also, we are chosen as His children; heirs to all the blessing.
He models and expresses how we love as parents and and how parents ought to love.
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God!”
(1 John 3:1)
Whether you have a father here on earth to celebrate with or not, you can celebrate the Creator’s unusual, unrelenting, all-in love for us and His creation.
For your perusal, I’ve included something sappy, something creative and something fun for your Father’s Day enjoyment.
Something sappy: A poem I wrote to my husband:
Your Love Comes Just In Time
Your love comes just in time
Silently tears drop like heavy morning dew from petals.
Your love unconditions my sense, all logic
Erasing all thoughts, burdens, tasks
Your love was always there
Unfaltering like the sureness of the earth under my feet.
Your love always will be
Rushing and wrapping and cocooning me.
Something Creative: A word cloud. (This is fun app where you put in a bunch of words and it will mix them together into a shape.)
Something fun: A video by Principal Gerry Brooks…I don’t think you have to be a teacher to appreciate it. There might be a dad out there who needs to know his gift of socks, underwear and ties isn’t the worst he could have gotten.
