I’d like to wish all the dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day!
To be honest, Father’s Day has been a little awkward for me in that I didn’t grow up with my dad. My parents divorced when I was six years old and my brother was just two months old.
We spent time on weekends with our dad going bowling or out to eat. However, my mom never remarried. So, we didn’t have a male role model in our home.
My husband’s parents divorced when he was nine years old, his middle brother was 4 years old and his youngest brother was 1 1/2 years old. Their mom remarried, but unfortunately it didn’t last.
Later in life, we learned neither one of our dads had strong father role models growing up either.
Randy and I hope to break this cycle and are committed to raising our children together. Sure, there have been bumps along the way and we aren’t perfect. Yet, we look to the Lord for our strength and guidance for our family.
A father to the fatherless
A defender of widows
Is God in his holy dwelling.
– Psalm 68:5
How was your relationship with your dad? I would love to hear about it.
