Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!
And a special hug
To those who don’t have a Dad here with them
Or who may have a strained relationship with their father.
Father’s Day has been at times very difficult for me
I had a strained relationship with my own father
After my parents divorce
For years, Father’s Day only brought me sadness
When I got divorced, more sadness came
Because then I had to watch my kids go through a similar event
Not always having their Dad with them because of distance
During the years where I was not in contact with my own father
I learned something critically important to my life
Regardless of our earthly situation
We do ALL have a Father
Our Father in Heaven.
He IS our Dad!
And He loves us
So regardless of what your life may have been like..
Remember that you DO have a Father who loves you.
That is why I love this song!
The Chorus is my absolute favorite part of this song
Where the song declares “I have a Father! We have a Father!”
There were many years I needed to know this
To just know that I did have a father in heaven who I could count on
I feel blessed to have my father in my life now
It is another reminder that God can make all things new
My Dad is coming to visit me next week actually
So Happy Father’s Day to my Dad
And all the Dads out there
Happy Father’s Day to the single parents who have to be both Mom and Dad
Happy Father’s Day to the father of my children
Because he gave me the 4 best gifts in my life!!
And Happy Father’s Day to my Father in Heaven who has stood by me
Through the last 240 pounds
And continues to see me through each and every day!
