To all my readers who are dads I pray your day is filled with love, laughter and the blessing of being honored today.
They say any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad. There’s also a saying that “Dad” stands for dedicated and devoted. If you fall into this category I pray you are honored today. There are far too many men in this world who have abandoned their responsibilities toward their children, far too many children living without a father figure in their life.
No matter if you have children, desire children or are around children-step up and invest in a child today. Children need both a mother and father figure in their life. There are men who set the bar and then there are men who raise it. Be a man who raises the bar, for your own children and in the lives of other children. God bless and enjoy this day that has been set aside just to honor you!
