Celebrating Godly Fatherhood

I saw the movie ‘courageous’ for a second time this last Tuesday and it struck me afresh the huge impact that fathers have on their children-especially their daughters.

A lot of people think the men shape the boys and the women shape the girls, but I beg to disagree. The value a woman is going to place on herself throughout life is going to first be determined by the value she thinks her father places on her.

At this point I would be doing the entire world a great disservice If I do not pause to celebrate the first man in my life, the man who truly loves me, sets the standard that subsequent men who want a place in my life have to meet ( he set it VERY high)LOL!

He taught me to study the bible for myself. Showed me what it means to serve God, shows me that real men have emotions and show them and that a man without God is nothing.

 He is ever ready to gist with me about anything, no matter how mundane. My partner in crime in my teenage years when the boys came flocking- I can never forget the nights of dissecting lyrics and gifts from various guys. We had good laughs and he steered me in the right direction.

He allows me to make my own choices and has never stifled my creativity. He believes in me a lot more than I believe in myself. His faith has helped mine in more ways than one and has kept me from giving up more times than I can count.

He’s stood by me every time I’ve failed and fallen flat on my face. He’s wiped my tears and listened to my fears through every heartache.

Daddy’s hugs seem to fix everything from a broken heart to an annoying boss.

He taught me it is okay to challenge status quo and that you don’t have to conform to societal expectations.

He gives wings to my dreams and enables me to fly

Wow! I have to stop before I write an epistle. I’ll save the epistle for when you turn 70!

Yes where was I? The influence of fathers on their daughters’ abi?

Need I say more?

Just look how I turned out!- The power of an Awesome God and an amazing earthly father who allowed himself to be used to model Christ even in his imperfections.

Thank you Daddy for being amazing. I Love you!

Celebrate my truly amazing dad with me!

 P.S : If its not obvious already, I’m a self confessed daddy’s girl
