For Fathers

To the new Fathers who feel like deer in front of headlights – take a deep breath and cherish the amazing moments.

To the Dads who put their life on hold for their families, you are a like a priceless jewel to be treasured forever.

To the Fathers who find it difficult to show their love and affection, don’t ever stop trying. Despite whatever efforts you make and the comfort zones you break from, your efforts do not go unnoticed.

To the Dads who offer advice that are viewed as unwise, biased, irrational and illogical. Your advice may be viewed as such in the spur of the moment. However, your words will not be forgotten – some of which may become life long lessons.

To the Fathers who are labeled as stubborn and old fashioned – that same moralistic stubbornness is invaluable when defending your families from injustices.

To the Fathers who have or are experiencing strained or lost relationships, we sympathize with you – hang in there because hope never fails.

To the Dads who strive to become better and better each and every day – your endeavors will be contagious and everything around you will be better.

To the single Dads who go through a balancing act day-in-and-day-out, you are truly the unsung heroes of the world.

To the Fathers who love unconditionally – thank you.

To Our Father who art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done,

on earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us,

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,

forever and ever.

Amen.
