Next Sunday, we will celebrate Father's Day this year. Many of us have lost our father (mine was DADDY) over the years. But, there are still the memories of all the years we had with him. I often think back to the time he had with my two oldest grandchildren. It is sad to know the other grandchildren will never know their great granddaddy. But, we were lucky; our Dad stayed with our Mom and us through all the bad and good years, unlike many Dads today. Many Dads hunt a way out, and leave quickly, either for another woman, or just to get away from the kids.

If your earthly father is alive this year, don't fail to call or go by and see him. This is one of the things you can do, in honoring your father, as the Bible tells us to do. Even if your father has done you wrong over the years, you should still call and wish him a happy Father's Day. You never know what a kind word can do - you might find it could be the path to the return of a relationship, or the path to his salvation.

There is a FATHER who will never leave us. He is there for us, whether we are having problems, or we are happy. He is there whether we are . . .

There is a FATHER who will never leave us. He is there for us, whether we are having problems, or we are happy. He is there whether we are rich or poor. And, He is ready to help us through our many trials, hurts, and pain.  And, He has promised He will never let us down!  Our earthly fathers can do much, but they can't always console us through our pain, keep us from our daily trials, or constantly bring happiness or joy into our lives. But, our Heavenly Father can do all these things and more!

Romans 15:5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
Romans 15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
