Father’s Day
This Sunday, June 19th, we celebrate Father’s Day! 

  • What a great time to recognize the important role of fathers in the family and society! 
  • A great time to remember and reminisce about our own dads, especially when they are no longer with us…
  • A time of reflection also, and encouragement for us all, dads young and not so young!
  • I pray and hope that this Sunday will be sweet and special, filled with laughter and barbecue smoke, and maybe a couple of tears here and there. 
  • May the Lord bless you and keep you, dads!
  • Below are some points from one of my devotionals for Father’s Day:
  • Great dads learn from the Father in Heaven! 
  • Feed your heart and soul every day with His word
  • Great dads learn from others! 
  • Surround yourself with good role models and good mentors. Don’t go at it alone!
  • Great dads are role models themselves! 
  • Remember that your kids are watching you, and learn from your example. Be a good one!
  • Great dads are also spiritual fathers! 
  • Make the Gospel and God’s grace your life’s message, whether it is with words or with actions.
  • Great dads know that it is never too late  to do the right thing! 
  • We all made mistakes. And a lot of… Do not let your past define your present and your future!
  • Rest in God’s grace – given to all of us who DON’T deserve it – then pick up your cross and do the right thing. Every day.
