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.
Father’s Day – today we set aside time to celebrate and honor fatherhood and to recognize the influence our Dads have had in our lives.
This photo was taken around the time of my father’s death. Dad – we still have your old easy chair. It is tattered and worn – but we can’t bear to get rid of it. It sits in your great-grandson’s room now. He watches cartoons and eats his snacks in that chair – just like your grandson did.
One of my favorite photographs. My son was only a few days old and this was his first visit to Big PaPa’s house.
Where did the time go? The boy is 25 years old!
And so the cycle of life continues – our newest Dad – and he’s doing a GREAT job.
~ HAPPY FATHER’S DAY ~
