Happy Father’s Day to all of you today!! For those who have never known an earthly father, you can celebrate having a Heavenly Father who loves you more than you can imagine!! For those who still have your fathers with you, give them extra hugs today and let them know that you love and appreciate them. For those whose fathers (or husbands) passed away this year, I know the pain you feel, and I pray that the God of all comfort will minister to you today, bringing you peace and strength to guide you through the rough waters.
…time will make these holidays easier and you will be able to remember him through smiles more than tears…
As an encouragement for you, time will make these holidays easier and you will be able to remember him through smiles more than tears even though you miss him just as much!!
For those who have father figures in your life, you are super blessed because they chose to have that kind of relationship with you!! I have several of those in my life, and I am so thankful for each one of them. I used to joke that I had six “daddies”!! Many of my original six have gone on to be with the Lord, but God’s been faithful to send me more because He knows how special “Daddies” are to me!!
My uncle Gilbert Andrews has always been one of my special “Daddies” and told me the story of when he and Susan were dating and he had come to a family reunion. I was always hanging onto Gilbert’s legs and MY family thought I was his child 😂 I still “hang on his legs” not literally now but metaphorically 😂 Another special “Daddy” God has brought into my life is my mother’s husband Phil Bennett. He is always there when I call on him and I’m blessed because he takes such good care of my Mama! Let’s not leave out the men of Evangel Temple in the little area where I sit, who have all embraced me and love on me like their daughter!!! Happy Fathers Day to all of you!!
