Hey Fathers, I salute you on today and everyday. Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers that are taking care of their children whether they are biologically yours or not.
I dislike the fact that this day is not PRAISED like Mother’s Day. I mean don’t get me wrong ain’t no one like momma but we would not even exist without daddy. Father’s get a bad rep because of the ones that just choose to SOW THEIR WILD OATS but not take full responsibility for their child/children. Any BOY can be a baby daddy it takes a MAN to be a FATHER.
One of my favorite fathers in the Bible was Joseph. Here we have a man that took on the role of father to JESUS CHRIST. Joseph did not have any relations with Mary and we know the story, Mary was chosen by GOD to carry Jesus and be his earthly mother. But at least Jesus was inside of Mary, she had that connection – no blood connected Jesus to Joseph. Joseph could have easily walked away and left Mary and Jesus to fend for themselves on earth. But he stood on Gods word; Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins. (Matt. 1:20-21)
To all the men out there whether your father was in your life or not; I challenge you to be better than your father, that is what he would want anyway. All fathers are not deadbeats – I just know that this day is going to change. FATHERS will be recognized for more than just the seed. I love you fathers.
To the wonderful fathers in my life – you have shown me what a man should be and do for their children. To my father – you are the ultimate provider, we never lacked still to this day. To my brother – your children honor you for the sacrifices you have made to give them the best. To my father in love – thank you for showing your son how to be a man and thanks for accepting me as your daughter and the wisdom you share with us daily. And lastly but certainly not least to my HUSBAND – thank you for caring for our sons, providing for them and teaching them how to be Godly boys into MEN.
