Jun 09 2014 Happy Dad’s Day!
Yep! June 15th is DAD’S DAY!
It’s a special day to be grateful for dads and I encourage you to CELEBRATE YOUR DAD. Maybe your dad is with the Lord. Maybe your dad is still with you. Maybe you are like me and you’ve never met your real dad. My dad and I share the same name, and I did see a picture of him once… he was a handsome man… that’s where I got my good… (oops)!
Make sure you keep the humor on Dad’s day! Here is what a few dads have said about Father’s Day:
“I don’t wish to brag, but in my family I get absolute obedience. For instance, every Father’s day I tell me family not to spend a lot of money on me – and they don’t!”
“Father’s day presents a new challenge:
What do you give to the man who has absolutely nothing?”
“Father’s Day is much like Mother’s Day, only you get much cheaper gifts.”
“You know what I got for Father’s Day this year? The bills from Mother’s Day!”
For the past 38 years I have met with men, mostly who are dads. Our desire with Tolson Ministries is to help men to:
• Be lovers of Jesus
• Be those who see themselves as God sees them
• Be great husbands
• Be great dads
• Be great influencers in the lives of others for Jesus
By His grace we will continue to assist men to do all the above. Thank you for your continued prayers and financial support to engage in this vital endeavor!
Ok Think about this:
A father is a man who reflects the image of his Father in heaven and who makes it less difficult for his children to know their father’s heavenly Father.
Here’s how a child sees his/her father:
• 4 years old: Daddy can do anything!
• 7 years old: Dad knows a lot – a whole lot.
• 8 years old: Father does not know everything.
• 12 years old: Oh well, naturally, my father does not know that either.
• 14 years old: My father? He is so not cool.
• 21 years old: Oh man, he is clueless!
• 25 years old: He knows a little bit about it, but not much.
• 30 years old: I must find out what Dad thinks about it.
• 35 years old: Before we decide we’ll get Dad’s idea first.
• 50 years old: What would Dad have thought of that?
• 60 years old: My Dad knew literally everything!
• 65 years old: I wish I could talk to my Dad more.
Joshua 24:15 . . . Now that’s a great dad!
“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
