Fathers' Day - USA

It's been great to be with family on Fathers' Day. At home in Australia, we celebrate it at a different time of the year. I was greeted by the grandson, who said, "Happy Mothers' Day Poppa!" Having just gone through Mothers' Day, it was the best this two year old could muster.

I'm grateful that my father was the kind of man that made God's Fatherhood good and believable. He celebrated a close relationship with Christ and capably showed me the way. My sons too and our new family all make me proud to be a father. They let me think they need me and value our relationship. I choose to believe them.

All of this comes from the Father of all creation through the Lord Jesus. I will always be grateful. Whether you're in the USA or elsewhere, I commend the absolute Fatherhood of God to you. He loves you more than you know.

Psalms 2:7 (NIV)
7 I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father.

I was fortunate enough to have a wonderful father;who is still to this day the greatest example of Christian servanthood,love and strength I have ever come across. I give thanks for him daily and miss him deeply; but I have found the love of my heavenly Father to be amazing and even though I dont always deserve it His love is always there.
Thankyou for reminding me of the great influence "both" of my fathers have had (and continue to have) on my life. God Bless.
