Dad the superhero, where are you?

Times have changed and no longer is dad the head of the family!  When we were little kids we looked at our dad as the strongest family member.  We looked at him as the protector and when we got into trouble mom would go and tell him.   When dad would say he wanted to see you; you knew it wasn't good.  He would try teach us the important things in life, that's if you had a real father.
 Little girls looked at their dads and saw him as their protector and the man in their life.  Little boys looked at their dad and saw him as their superhero and wanted to be like him when they grew up.  Of course that was the old days, in today's world there are to few fathers in their kids lives.  Maybe it's because some of the dads of this generation are young men even teenagers . Therefore, the parents of these teens are forced to become grandparents and parents.  In some households the mother is forced to take on two rolls and she does the best that she can but boys need a father to learn how to be a man and girls need a father to protect them from the wrong man. 

Unfortunately their are some kids who don't see their father's at all, ever!  When we become adults ourselves we remember the wisdom that our dads taught us.  We should all honor our dads he may not be perfect but he taught you something and he loves you. Honor him even if he's gone home to be with the lord he's still looking out for you.  If you don't have a dad I know one you have for sure and his name is GOD!  He's the one who wakes you up in the morning, he's the one that holds you when you're down and he is Jesus Christs dad as well.  He's the one that teaches you wisdom through his
word; the Bible. So honor your dad this father's day and remember GOD is the father of all fathers.

 A Father's Father

"Father to the fatherless,
defender of widows -
this is God,
whose dwelling is holy.
God places the lonely in families;
He sets the prisoners free
and gives them joy.
But He makes the rebellious
live in a sun-scorched land


Psalm 68:5-6
