Remember our Dads

Last week I was reading an article about how the author, Kristan Dean, remembers her dad. She called him a Superman. I thought how appropriate when everyone has their own favorite Superhero. So what did she think were the super powers of a Dad who is Superman?

The first power is unconditional love. This love encompasses the love for his wife, his children and even his extended family. He is someone you can always count on. Your friends even love being around him because he makes them feel so special.

Another super power of Dad’s is his strength. He guides you through every challenge and helps you learn and grow even when you make mistakes. Where does he get this strength? She goes on to say his strength comes from faith in himself, his family and his God.

I thought to myself, how often are we afraid to mention our faith in our God. Whatever your beliefs, we can acknowledge that the Creator of the Universe is all-caring and will never forsake us. He will never let us down. You can add another super power, faith.

Is your dad a Superman? What are his super powers? This Father’s Day, how will you remember your dad, super powers and all? Living or deceased, what will you tell your Superman? Will it include “thank you” and “I love you, Superman”?
