Fathers have an awesome task
To show what love is made of
So when their children look at them
They’ll see the heart of God
And grow to want to know God more
To walk in all His ways
To learn from their Father’s wisdom
And be taught how to pray.
Fathers have a special role
In each young child’s life
To mould and shape them to become
A follower of Christ
To show them the
And help them understand
How God’s love can be their guide
As they take Him by the hand.
God bless, lots of love
Mark Samm Deqlan and Logan
BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD
