To All The Fathers

To All The Fathers

To all those who are reading this article today, I just wanted to take the time out and start by giving all the glory and praise to the Father of fathers our Lord, who without His unending love where would I truly be. I’m dedicating my article to all the fathers around the world – we love and truly appreciate you.

Usually I would begin my articles by telling you a story, or something I saw in the news, or a particular scripture that had got me thinking but I wanted this month to be different. I love writing poetry which began when I was in university. I enjoyed how easy it was to express on a piece of paper what was in my heart and mind, therefore with this type of expression I wanted to appreciate all fathers.

Thank you truly for your lives and Godly examples and teachings of responsibility. While reading these various poems I hope that you are blessed.

My Earthly Dad
With these three words,
“Dear Heavenly Father,”
I begin my every prayer,
But the man I see
While on bended knee
Is always my earthly dad.
He is the image
Of the Father divine
Reflecting the nature of God,
For his love and care
And the faith he shared
Pointed me to my Father above.

Thank You, Dad
Thank you for the laughter,
For the good times that we share,
Thanks for always listening,
For trying to be fair.
Thank you for your comfort,
When things are going bad,
Thank you for the shoulder,
To cry on when I’m sad.
This poem’s a reminder that
All my life through,
I’ll be thanking heaven
For a special dad like you.

Our 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 in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it…
Dad
