“God cares about the relationship between fathers and their kids. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.” Malachi 4:6
Happy Father’s Day! Even though my dad passed away years ago, I’m blessed in that I get to celebrate the day through Smitty and Kristen. Sadly my dad never met Smitty, as he passed my senior year of college. Maybe that’s why this is one of my favorite collage pics:
My dad was a handsome and proud man who worked hard til the day he died. He proudly served our country and supported our family. He and Smitty would have gotten along great. In fact, in many ways I married my dad.
Photos are all I have left of my dad. I love taking photos and I cherish so many of them, my personal ones and others I come across.
I love this photo of a bride stopping to kiss her dad as she walks down the aisle after her wedding:
I also love this photo of a solider with his baby:
Let’s not forget all those dads who can’t be with their children today.
In our house, Father’s Day couldn’t fall on a better day for, as Kristen calls him, Pops. He has the U.S. Open, NBA Finals, and World Cup soccer to choose from all day on TV. In some households this might drive the women nuts, but in ours, it’s “dad’s perfect day, and mom and daughter are so down for it all too!”
As many of you know, I love quotes and sayings. One of my favorites about dads is when, in the movie “The Descendants,” George Clooney’s character says, ““Give your children enough to do something but not enough to do nothing.” Hollywood, yes but also so true.
Here then, are some more funny and philosophical thoughts about dads:
And from one of TV’s wisest and funniest dads:
Happy Father’s Day Smitty! Enjoy your day and your daughter!
Don’t be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow. Live one day at a time. Matthew 6:34
