Throughout our lives, we have many family members, but one of the most important is a father. A good father is the head of his household; someone who provides, protects, and loves his family, all at the same time. He isn’t always perfect, but he tries his utmost to help his children thrive as they travel down the path God has laid out for them. Some dads are fans of that famous tough love, while others can be complete goofballs most of the time. But when it comes to their families, all great dads are seriously loyal until the very end.
Some of my fondest memories are of my father, Shannon Anderson. When my little brother Ben and I were younger, Dad would tell us a story every night before we went to bed. I remember the times we would go fishing or just hang around the house laughing. But what I remember most about my father is that he never gave up on us. No matter how many times we have fallen or messed up, he has always been there to scold us if needed, and then remind us that he loves us just the same.
Whether the father in your life is your biological one, an uncle, a grandfather, a friend, or even God, your Father in heaven, take the time on Father’s Day to honor him.
Here’s to the dads…
Happy Father’s Day.
