~*`WHEN GOD CREATED FATHERS`*~

~*~`IN HONOR OF FATHER'S DAY`~*~ ~ June 15, 2007~ `*`HISTORY OF FATHER'S DAY `*`    The idea of Father's Day was conceived by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Wash., while she listened to a Mother's Day sermon in 1909. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart, a widowed Civil War Veteran who was left to raise his six children by him on a rural farm. June was chosen for the first Father's Day celebration - proclaimed for June 19, 1910, by Spokane's mayor - because it was the month of William Smart's birth. The first presidential proclamation honoring fathers was issued in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson designated the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Father's Day has been celebrated annually since 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed the public law that made it permanent. Source: Net 153's Weekly Inspirational Newsletter ~*~`WHEN GOD CREATED FATHERS`~*~        When the good Lord was creating fathers, He started with at all frame. And a female angel nearby said, "What kind of father is that? If you're going to make children so close to the ground, why have you put fathers up so high? He won't be able to shoot marbles without kneeling, tuck a child in bed without bending, or even kiss A child without a lot of stooping."     And God smiled and said, "Yes, but if I make him child size, who would children have to look up to?"     And when God made a father's hands, they were large and sinewy.     And the angel shook her head sadly and said, "Do You know what You're doing? Large hands are clumsy. They can't manage diaper pins, small buttons, rubber bands on pony tails or even remove splinters caused by baseball bats."       God smiled and said, "I know, but they're large enough to hold everything a small boy empties from his pockets at the end of a day… yet small enough to cup a child's face."     Then God molded long, slim legs and broad shoulders.     The angel nearly had a heart attack. "Boy, this is the end of the week, all right," she clucked. "Do You realize You just made a father without a lap? How is he going to pull a child close to him without the kid falling between his legs?"     God smiled and said, "A mother needs a lap. A father needs strong shoulders to pull a sled, balance a boy on a bicycle or hold a sleepy head on the way home from the circus."     God was in the middle of creating two of the largest feet anyone had ever seen when the angel could contain her no longer. "That's not fair. Do You honestly think those large boats are going to dig out of bed early in the morning when the baby cries? Or walk through a small birthday party without crushing at least three of the guests?"     And God smiled and said, "They'll work. You'll see. They'll support a small child who wants to "ride a horse to Banbury Cross" or scare off mice at the summer cabin, or display shoes that will be a challenge to fill."     God worked throughout the night, giving the father few words,but a firm authoritative voice; eyes that see everything, but remain calm and tolerant.     Finally, almost as an afterthought, He added tears. Then He turned to the angel and said, "Now are you satisfied that he can love as much as a mother?"       And the angel shutteth up! by Erma Bombeck (1927 - 1996) ********************************************** `Dedicated to all those who due to `uncontrollable circumstances` have not known their Fathers, which for God's Reasons, are His to behold! `We Honor Them Also`~God Bless Each and Everyone`! :~*`PRESENTED BY`*~: `Janie's Never Ending Circle Of Love` a.k.a.~MJB'~ ©2008 `GOD'S BLESSINGS TO ALL`! `audio` 'Moon River' *`Re`Produced for Father's Day*©*2013*June*16* `aloha hugs web/designer` `Janie/mjfb1954 *******************************************************************************
