A father’s love is different from a mother.
No matter the stigma surrounding fathers, we can never compare them to our mother.
They deserve love and appreciation too.
Fathers are the part of the foundation that contributed to our development in life too.
Fathers can be superheroes to some.
Some may have been strict disciplinarians that taught you how to overcome.
Be thankful for what they may have taught you.
To protect you and not let others take advantage of you.
You will learn to appreciate it when you have children of your own.
It will teach you how to discipline them that they may grow up to be strong.
You may have grown up in the household of a single mother.
Still we must acknowledge the contribution of a father.
We cannot hold resentment or regret.
Of fathers who have been absent in our lives or who have not been present.
We must forgive and reconcile our hearts to God.
And love them as God loves us. God is love.
Fathers are God’s gift to the earth. Value a father’s worth.
Choose not to hold on to bitterness or strife.
Cherish your being here because of your parent’s sacrifice.
One made by your father and mother, with God’s help, who gave you life.
If you have been raised by a single mother, today give recognition where it is deserved in honor to all fathers. No matter where they are or haven’t been as of today. Acknowledge your father or children’s father even if they have been absent in the role they play. Be it near or far, celebrate their life today. Honor the presence and memory of ones who are no longer here. Celebrate them in spirit and keep them close to your heart, near and dear.
To Fathers all across the world today, I say
Happy Father’s Day!
Be blessed! -JD
