A Father is more than a Father

It is a wise father that knows his own child. William Shakespeare

A father is more than a father. He is a revolution. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, grandfather’s, stepfather’s and those who have fathered without being a sperm giver. Father’s play an important role in any child’s life. Father’s are the nucleus of the family. They nurture and love a mother and give guidance and structure to the children.

Growing up with a father in the home is almost rare these days. Some will question if this is part of the destruction of the family. Father’s never get the recognition they are due. Having a father in the home has many advantages.

  1. Father’s bear authority. According to the word of God, man (father) is the leader and the family should follow. Without a man in the home, there is lack of direction.
  2. Father’s have a love that mother (woman) can’t give. God made it necessary for man to nurture, love and protect.

My father didn’t grow up in the home with me, but he was there every step I took & every move I made. I’m fortunate to say he still does. Meet my handsome dad. I consider my life blessed because not only did I have my dad, my granddad’s were present too. Having a man in the home who represented a father was normal to me.

As a wife and mom, my son’s have experienced the same. My husband’s presence has had a dramatic impact in how I rear my son’s. They see him as an example and they follow his lead.

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father. Frank Abagnale

The world can never have enough great men filling the role of father. Men who are father’s.. you are needed and certainly appreciated. Society will say one thing, but from a woman who appreciates your presence, your dominance, your guidance and your stature, thank you for all you do.

Until next time.. blessings & peace,

Nichelle
