Happy Father's Day
I just wanted to wish a Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. I am blessed to be a father and I am also blessed to have (or have had) a wonderful father, grandfathers, and father-in-law. I am also friends with many who are great fathers. I also wanted to wish a special first Father's Day to my brother-in-law Scott.
This Father's Day it is also on my mind to honor the wives (moms) and kids who give us the opportunity to be fathers. I love every moment of being a dad and all the challenges and rewards it brings. Without my wife and our precious Gracie, I wouldn't be a dad! One of my devotionals had some poignant thoughts about fatherhood, specifically "The role of a father changes as children grow, but it doesn't end. Praise and encouragement are welcomed whether a child is 4 or 40." (Our Daily Bread)
Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.
