What is a Dad?

Happy Fathers day in Australia, Sept 1, 2013

A dad is someone

who wants to catch you before you fall

but instead picks you up, brushes you off,

and lets you try again.

A dad is  someone

who wants to keep you from making mistakes

but instead lets you find your own way,

even  though his heart breaks in silence

when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who holds you when you cry,

scolds you when you break the rules,

shines with pride when you succeed,

and has faith in you even when you fail….

We pray that all our  Dads, Grandpas and Great Grandpas who will enjoy a happy day with their families , or if separated from them by distance, in touch with them in a meaningful way.
