Happy Father’s Day, Dads!

“Make your father truly happy by living right and showing sound judgment.”        Proverbs 23:24 CEV

“What’s on the other side of heaven? Is there another heaven and another heaven?”

“I don’t know, Sam.” I ‘ve always loved those probing five-year-old questions, even though they really don’t have answers from our vantage point on earth. “We won’t know that until we get to heaven.”

“I’ll have to go in my spirit and check it out,” he replied. Then he happily changed the subject and started reciting the Bible verses he had learned recently, complete with hand motions.

One of the best things about being a grandparent is spending time with the little ones – watching them grow up and just sharing conversation or hugs with them. They ask deep questions one moment and then run off to play the next. Sometimes they just run to you and offer hugs or a sweet smile.

But what really brings satisfaction is knowing that their parents have  grown into loving, caring people who are committed to raising their children well – in spite of the parenting mistakes my generation made.

For all the fathers and grandfathers out there, it’s my prayer as we celebrate Father’s Day this weekend, that you may find joy in watching your children and grandchildren grow into responsible, Christian adults, passing the message of Christ to the next generation! Amen.
