Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Happy Father's Day to a Man who Fathers Well

The children pull out the crayons and card stock to honour the Daddy they adore with homemade cards. The boy scratches a poem down on paper to pay tribute to his father with witty words.

He is a Dad who deserves praise.

He is a husband who loves well.

He is a man worthy of his wage.

He rises with the sun and sets off to work with his hands.

He never leaves without a kiss and always returns home expecting the same.

He is steady, self-sacrificing and servant-hearted.

He is compassionate, committed, and courageous.

He makes music in life.

He composes passionate ballads with sweet harmony pulsing in real time.

He hammers hard when the black notes fill the performance.

He crescendos when life gets tricky with sharps and flats. Presses in. Presses on.

He humbly steps across the stage of life and never demands applause.

He tenderly holds his children in his arms and near to his heart.

He opens his hand to what the Lord has given and knows that the Lord could take away.

He believes in his heart.

He hopes against hope.

He loves the Lord.

He loves his bride.

He loves his children.

We celebrate and honour him.

We give thanks for him.

We stand up and give him special recognition today. 

Happy Father's Day to a man who fathers well.
