This past Saturday was my husband’s birthday and Father’s Day is right around the corner, so I thought it only fitting to share what I wrote about The First Father’s Day on the Tommy Nelson blog for June:
Even though I’ve always poked fun at elementary school graduations and the like, it was hard for my heart not to melt when I found out my son’s school was holding a “Promotion Party” for the outgoing Kindergarten class. I mean seriously, can you stand the cuteness?
It’s also a time for reminding dads everywhere how important they are in our lives. Whether you have a father, are a father or have lost a father, I know you’ll agree that they have shaped your lives in some way or another.
For some of you, Father’s Day will be an incredibly difficult time… Read the full post over on the Tommy Nelson blog
If you’re looking for ways to celebrate dad, why not take the time to mark this milestone with a few of these ideas:
- Have your kids make dad coffee and read him a book instead of bringing him the newspaper (ones I love for this month are Thank you God for Daddy by Amy Parker, I’d Choose You by John Trent, & Just in Case You Ever Wonder by the ever loved Max Lucado)
-Try to find pictures of past Father’s Days and start a compilation of pictures that you can add to year after year
- Create a Dad’s day off: give him permission to hide out in his man cave, sit and watch sports with him or actually ask him where he’d like to go to eat…then go there!
