dad

Each year on Father’s Day I am reminded of the fact that my father is no longer living.  I tend not to focus on that but on what he was  when he was here.  He was a very warm and very loving person.  He was mean though.  He would fly off the handle at a moments notice.  There were some extremely rough early years followed by just as loving times in the later years.  I love my father very much.  I talk to him daily and I know that he is listening.  Every Father’s Day I am reminded that my father is no longer living,

in the flesh only.

God bless the man who sacrifices for his family

God bless the man who helps without wanting

God bless the man who goes without

God bless the man who smiles with a touch

God bless the man who instills fear

God bless the man who is resolute

God bless the man with damp shoulders

God bless the man with gentle hands

God bless the man who holds the Bible

God bless the man who lives in the word

God bless the man who teaches

God bless the man who is humble

For this man is a Father

And God blessed his family with him
