Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous Sufficiency God bless your 2013! This is the year of ACTION!
I just wanted to take this time to bless all fathers, particularly my own dad, Henry, and the fathers here on 43T – Todd, Wayne, Russell, Harold, Liam, Chris, JR Fiction (B), and the other fathers.
Fathers make a huge difference in the lives of their children. Strong leadership, discipline, love, gentleness, role model, hugs, kisses, esteem, acceptance, peace, encouragement, appropriate affection, protector, provider, and the list goes on. No matter how hard mothers try, we cannot replace that of the father in the life of a child, and vice versa.
My own dad has greatly impacted my life, both good and bad. Your actions DO matter. Love on your children, meet them where they are at. Understand them, help them set good boundaries for their lives. Role model courage to make right choices.
I bless each of you fathers in making continual good choices. Our children also learn forgiveness through you. Learn to let go and forgive. I bless your lives with peace, strength, and love, fathers. May the richness and fullness of God always cover your lives and the impact you will make on your children will be one of immense blessing.
