Duty and Dads

What Father’s Day means to ME…

Father’s Day is a day to honor and give Dad’s a break from every day duties. Duty is a very HEFTY word; the definition is a “HEAVY” load to bear!

Webster’s Definition:
1.) Assigned service
2.) A moral or legal obligation

A Father’s duty is not something that ends when his children grow up. As a matter of fact, it seems to get harder and more difficult I think. A father is responsible for so many things. Providing in many ways financially and emotionally, teaching and guiding, listening and hearing with an open, understanding, loving and accepting heart. It demands patience, endurance and humility. As he watches his children walk through life, he is thankful that by the grace of God he did something “right” when his children do exactly as they have seen him do. He feels proud at times and disappointed at times. Not only as a Father, but also with everything else in life that is expected of him, he finds himself STRECHED in many DIRECTIONS and LEADING the best way he knows how. There are fun times, hard times and every kind of times in between, but one thing is for sure, the duty of a father is never ending and most rewarding.

Happy Father’s Day to ALL…
