Fathers' Day

a Biblical thought...
But you, dear friends, carefully build yourselves up in this most holy faith by praying in the Holy Spirit, staying right at the center of God's love, keeping your arms open and outstretched, ready for the mercy of our Master, Jesus Christ. This is the unending life, the real life! (Jude 21-21)

a Book thought...
What is accepted today as tradition was, at one point in time, a break from tradition. (p56 Bell)
a Dave thought...
Fathers' day is a great day when you are a proud dad of two young boys. Unfortunately it started at 4.57am when Josiah decided he was not going to sleep any longer. Kylie then cooked me pancakes for breakfast as I unwrapped my presents including a new pair of moccasins from Noah. I do really love being a dad, sure my life is busier and I have more responsibility as others depend on me, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Just a thought.

Even though you are a father, you're still a mother.

Hi David,

I read your blog most days and as soon as I opened up the Father's Day one I nearly had a heart attack! I forgot!!!!!!!! Thanks for the reminder.

Now, to be fair, I am living in another country where Father's Day is celebrated in another month... but if not for you, my dad would not have received my greeting (a late 2am text!!!).

Thanks for your challenges and reminders... I can relate to so much of what you say, your words of wisdom certainly get me thinking.
