Happy Father’s Day

One of the most wonderful, important things a man can do is be a Father to a child or children. Most any man can make a baby, not every man can make a baby a man or woman. That takes love, caring, nurturing, working and lots of time. My hat is off to all you Fathers, God Bless You for your devotion. Then, isn’t it wonderful comes Fathers Day when those children start calling, wishing you well, coming to see you and bringing or sending you presents. That is always so special to me. This year, for the first Father’s day in over fifty years one of my children is not in our presence. God called her home January 13, 2017. My heart aches for her every day, but this day it is hitting home because she was always making me feel extra special on Father’s Day. My oldest daughter Kim, mentioned Phyllis in her card to me about how Phyllis felt about me and the difference she thought that I had made in her life. The words she used almost made me feel like I was hearing from Phyllis and it brought tears to my eyes.  I am so thankful for all my children, each of them are so special and I love everyone of them……and I miss Phyllis…..

What a personal Fathers’ Day message? It is refreshing to see a specific message other than merely the exchange of greetings, the exchange of greeting cards, or even recognition in Church.

Thanks, Errol…
