Father’s Day has come and gone. How did you spend yours? We had a quiet afternoon after church. It was good. I am thankful that we were able to celebrate my husband on Sunday. We talked about what it meant to be a good father – and how he has pointed our kids to Jesus Christ.
It really was a good day.
However, I know it wasn’t an easy day for many. Maybe your father was absent growing up. Or maybe he was around, but not really present or available. Maybe your father was abusive. Maybe you never knew him. I get this. Really, I do. My father was an alcoholic and was killed in an accident when I was 3. He was the driver. He killed his friend, too.
I know healing and restoration is possible, friend. I know because I have experienced it. And that is why I chose Julie’s post, 6 Of The Best Reasons Why We Need Our Dads, as my feature this week. She addresses just how important dads are – and because they are so important, it breaks our hearts when our dad isn’t the dad God intended him to be. I appreciate how she briefly discusses how to seek help and healing for those wounds. The stats she shares are not surprising, but still hard to read. It is a great post – and I hope that it blesse you as you read…and brings healing to your heart.
Julie, please be sure to grab this “I’ve Been Featured” image below and add it, with a link to this page, to your post so that your readers can celebrate with you!
