When dad goes and never returns

"Honor your Father & your mother that your days may be long upon the land, which the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12

Doris Haase writes:

"When my Parents would go away, Mother would tell me that Aunt Ethel was going to take care of me. They always returned.

But when I was 5, Daddy got sick. He went away in an ambulance and Mumma told me he wouldn't be coming home.

When Daddy's strong arms had wrapped around me in a bear hug, I always felt warm & protected. But now everything changed. I crawled far under my blankets at night, trying to feel safe.

My mother came & sat beside me. " You miss daddy don't you honey?", she asked softly. "Well so do I. But you still have a Father-God Who lives in Heaven, let's talk to Him."
"Our Father" she said so earnestly, that I knew someone was really listening. "We need to feel Your Presence so we'll know we are not alone!"
Then she began to cry holding me. I pressed my face against her shoulder and let my tears soak her dress.

"Father-God" I whispered. Slowly a new comforting feeling filled me. I felt safe again, the way I used to when daddy was home,"

Can we tell the dads in our midst how much we love them and appreciate them?
Let us pray for them and speak a blessing over them today & not when they are gone!
God bless all days not just today but always....
Leslie Rajkumar you sure a great dad to your children!!
