Happy Father’s Day to my dear husband. Best Daddy ever to our four children.
Here are some quotes about fathers.
Why God made Fathers
God knew that each one of us would need shelter and guidance
Throughout our growing up years, Warmth and compassion
For all our problems And strength for our worries and fears…
He saw that we needed wisdom for living.
A knowledge of heaven above.
True understanding of life’s deeper meanings.
‘Examples of kindness and love.
And so He made fathers to stand side by our side, To inspire us in every endeavor,Whose faith and devotion will last through our lives find whose love we will cherish forever.-Unknown
I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.-Stephen Grellet

6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Nothing you do for the children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes; and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.-Garrison Keillor
What makes a Dad
God took the strength of a mountain, The majesty of a tree, The warmth of a summer sun, The calm of a quiet sea, the generous soul of nature, The comforting arm of night, The wisdom of the ages, The power of the eagle’s flight, The joy of a morning spring, Te faith in a mustard seed, The patience of eternity, The depth of a family need. Ten God combined theses qualities. When there was nothing more to add, He knew His masterpiece was complete, And so He called…Dad.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.-Charles Spurgeon

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and the rules are flexible-the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nuturing family.-Virginia Satir
