Our gracious Heavenly Father,
In honor of this Father’s Day…
We would like to pay you homage
In a special sort of way.
We’ve been favored with a Father
Who blesses us from up above.
Who looks past our faults and failures
To offer unconditional love.
Lord, to say that we adore You
Simply doesn’t seem enough…
Yet we know that You can see our hearts
So You already know this stuff.
We believe that Your conception
Of love goes beyond a word.
We believe You place obedience
Above all You’ve ever heard.
Your desire is for commitment
To Your cause and Your command.
Your call is for the Golden Rule
To be applied and made to stand.
Lord, we pray that we, your children,
Can meet Your expectations…
Show love for You and one another
And walk away from all temptations.
Father, help us all to honor You…
To respect and to obey.
Now, in the Name of Christ our Lord,
Have a Happy Father’s Day!
~~Author’s Note~~ Like all holidays, Father’s Day will be
a time of remembering my earthly
father, the father of my children, and
my precious Ish who treated my children
as though they were his own…and was
a man my children called Dad. There
will always be a sense of sadness attached
to Father’s Day…as we miss those who
have moved to their Heavenly Home. I
know Kathy, Sandy, Janie, and many others
feel this empty void. The poem I’ve written
is to honor God, our Father…it’s written
as a presentation from all His children…so
if you are a child of God…you are included.
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise
