Once again I give you the renderings of my friend Paul. He’s a teacher by trade and a part-time minister. He is always thinking and shares those thoughts with us. He writes:


I am prejudiced towards Father’s Day since I am a one.  I am extremely proud of my daughters.  They are beautiful women.  What else could a father ask for?

I also applaud those who are father/mother – the single parents.  How incredibly difficult it must be to try to fulfill both roles.  May God richly bless you.

Like many, my Father is no longer here.  While my Dad lived, I took him for granted.  He was always there.  I couldn’t imagine life without him.  Some have recently lost their dad and this is their first Father’s Day without them.  How hard it is when everywhere you turn there is advertising for Father’s Day.  We don’t realize how great it is to have a dad until we don’t have one.

We must learn that just because something is consistent, that does not mean that we will have it forever.  Because God is with us we can start expecting things to happen “as they always have” and take God for granted.  The sun will rise and set.  The seasons will come and go.  There is plenty of air to breathe and food to eat.  You don’t want to realize how great your Heavenly Father is because you do not have Him.

Jesus said, “As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” 

John 9:4-5

23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. 

Hebrews 10:23-25
