Being a Father is a Wonderful Thing

Father’s Day is one of those interesting holidays that take place each year in our country. It is a day when Dad sometimes receives a really ugly tie, not knowing how important it will one day be. Or maybe a card that is thrown in a drawer but one day is found and brings tears to his eyes.

I came across this quote this week and wanted to share it with all of you.

“‘Walk a little slower, Daddy,’ said a little child so small. I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t want to fall. Sometimes your steps are very fast, sometimes they’re hard to see; so walk a little slower Daddy, for you are leading me. Someday when I’m all grown up, you’re what I want to be, and then I will have a little child who’ll want to follow me. And I would want to lead just right, and know that I was true; so walk a little slower, Daddy, for I must follow you!’”

The influence you have as a Dad will carry throughout your child’s life, so when life gets crazy, “Walk a little slower Daddy”.

Proverbs 22:6

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

I love you all,

Because the Lord is my

Shepherd, I have everything

I need! He lets me rest in

meadow grass and leads me

beside the quiet streams.
