We might call this Bad Tie Day on behalf of the unfortunate gifts dads will receive today. Here are some quotes that may entertain your dad… (or not!)
“By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong.” (Unknown)
“You can tell what was the best year of your father’s life, because they seem to freeze that clothing style and ride it out.” (Jerry Seinfeld)
“We wondered why when a child laughed, he belonged to Daddy, and when he had a sagging diaper that smelled like a landfill, ‘He wanted his mother.’ (Erma Bombeck)
“When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant; I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.” (Mark Twain)
“The first half of our lives is ruined by our parents, the second half by our children.” (Clarence Darrow)
Friends, whatever you think about your father, you will miss them when they are gone. And fathers, here is God’s directive for you and your children.
Fathers, don’t exasperate your children by coming down hard on them. Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master.(Ephesians 4:4, MSG)
Prayer- Oh, God thank you for fathers and for you, the best father of all. Amen.
