Happy Belated Father’s Day
Happy belated Father’s Day to all of the fathers who are providing for their families, encouraging their families, protecting and praying for their families, leading by example, supporting their families, loving their families, guiding their families, taking their families to church, spending quality time with their families, listening to their families, making memories with their families, disciplining their children and more.
Father’s we need you. We need you to teach our young boys how to respect themselves and how to respect others. We need you to teach them how to pull up their pants and walk tall. We need you to teach them how to treat young ladies and how to talk to them. We need you to teach them to put God first in all that they do. We need you to teach them to stay in school and off of the streets. We need you to teach them to go to church and become involved at a young age. We need you to challenge them to be the best that they can be and never settle for less. We need you to teach them how to be a man, but show them it’s okay to cry. We need you to teach them that real men fall to their knees and pray daily. We need you to take your place as men of God and raise these boys to be god-fearing men. FATHERS WE NEED YOU!!!!
Fathers we need you to show your daughters the love of Christ. We need you to show them what a god-fearing man looks like. We need you to demonstrate what a real man looks like, so when she gets older she won’t settle for less. We need you to treat your daughter like a princess, so when she is older she will expect to be treated as a queen. We need you to encourage her and to pray for her. We need you to be present in her life spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically because one day she will need to know that you are there. We need you to teach her how to defend herself. We need you to teach her how to demand respect by respecting herself. Fathers we need you! We love you and we thank you!!!!
I just wanted to say thank you to all of the men who are operating as FATHERS!!! It takes more to being a father than making a baby. Happy belated Father’s Day to all of the wonderful men who are operating as such!
