As I was writing a poem God placed on my heart for Father’s Day, I couldn’t help but reflect on the similarities of my dad and my heavenly father.
My dad always has time for us; so does Jesus.
As a father he longs to spend time with us and looks forward to it. So does Jesus.
He walks around gentle, kind and full of compassion; so does Jesus.
He wants to carry my heartache and fix my broken heart; so does Jesus.
Dad loves me just as I am and where I am at in life; so does Jesus.
I realize not everyone was blessed with a dad like mine. What you need to realize is Jesus is waiting to love you with open arms and to be that father to you. He wants to bless you in ways you have never imagined; you just have to accept Him and accept the fact He loves you just as you are.
Dad’s Gentle Touch
When we were little we would walk hand in hand,
We were always your biggest fans,
You always made it all about us, never about you
You would walk in after work asking us what we wanted to do.
As we started playing sports you were always in the stands,
It was your turn to be our biggest fan.
We knew with you we always came first,
You always loved us, even at our worst.
As we grew up and had children of our own,
You still made time for us even though we were grown.
The values you taught us were learned by watching you.
Morals, integrity, putting God and family first, to name a few.
It’s not hard to see how we became who we are.
We were given a priceless gift; the best dad by far.
Happy Father’s Day dad! Thank you for showing us what it means to love like Jesus.
