Memories, Moments, And Dad

Thoughts of childhood lovingly lay in a place where they can easily be found. We pull them from our hearts, when we miss opportunities to be with those we love. Memories of moments surface quickly, as we remember our dads. They are keepsakes of treasured time that has been well spent.

My father is an incredible man of faith, who often reminds me and my sisters how very much we are loved. Last year I had the privilege of spending Father’s Day with him. Distance won’t allow us to see one another this year, but I’m grateful I will hear his happy voice when I call. I’ll miss opportunities to be with him, but will remember him with love, and thank God for the wonderful memories of moments we’ve shared.

I think about the many who can no longer hear the loving voice of a father who has passed.  God knows they are truly missed. He looks into the hearts of those who must rely on memories to sustain, and tenderly allows them to remember what they will never want to forget.

God prepares us to honor our dads, and embrace the moments which have brought us great joy. He fills us with a loving heart of thanks, as we consider the impact our fathers have had in our lives. And, when we cannot be together, God guides our thoughts, as we reflect on special moments which will forever stay in our hearts.

The Bible says, “May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. “ Thessalonians 2:16 

God knows how it feels to love. He is our Heavenly Father who longs for us to know Him as Lord of our lives. He takes good care of His children. As we learn to faithfully trust in Him, He reminds us we are not alone.

God blesses us with wonderful memories and precious moments to share. May we embrace them with a grateful heart of thanks, as we honor our fathers and take time to remember how very much they are loved.

Happy Fathers Day! God is near and He loves YOU,



  1. God bless you and your Dad.
    My Dad passed away in 2005 and every year, either for Father's Day or on the anniversary of his passing in the month of September, I write something about/for him.
    I missed him on Sunday.

  2. Hello Tex, God bless you as you remember your dear dad. Writing is a wonderful way to allow God to help you deal with the loss of your father. We would love for you to share some of your writings here. Take care. May God bring comfort to your heart as you think about your dad.
