Thank You Lord for our Earthly Fathers

Thank You Lord For Our Earthly Fathers

Given To us By You To Show Us The Way

They Have Not Always Been Perfect

But Help Us Honor Them As You Say


Let Us Not Focus On Their Imperfections

But  Only See The Good  They Have Done

Let Us Not Judge Their Parenting Skills

But Praise Them With The Love Of  Your Son


You Chose Our Earthly Father, Lord

We Did Not Get Them by Mistake

Let Each of Us Find The Reason  For Your Choice

And Thank You For The Person they Helped to Make


Only You Know The Reasons  For Your Choices Lord

Help Us Not To Question You

Help Us To Embrace That Choice

Help Us To See Them As You Do

Saw this on facebook! Nice poem! Our father may not have been perfect as we saw him.  But as he was chosen for us by our Heavenly Father, we can be sure he was perfect for us! I believe he did love us and did the best he was capable of doing given his own life circumstances - and that's all any of us can do! I often think of his smile and I really can't wait to see him again when we're reunited in heaven. I love him - and with all the focus on fathers these last couple of days - I'm really missing him today!

I also believe he was perfect for us and he may not have been perfect but he was perfect for us. I think of the times when he knew he got Mom going and he had that sheepish little boy grin. He was such a tease!!! Maybe that helped to make me more thicked skin. I miss him too but I know we will see him again. When I heard tell Father Terry that him and God were ok, I knew he really was ok.

Yes, that Sunday when he asked us to pray for him was truly a blessing.  I love how God allowed us to share that special time with him. I remember Father Terry telling Mom, "I've got a real good feeling about him!" I knew then all was well!!!
