I realize it’s a little late to be posting about Father’s Day, but here goes:
After church we went out to lunch with my dad and then we drove to South Dakota for a few days away as a family in the Black Hills and the Badlands, that filled us with a strong desire to watch Dances with Wolves when we got back.
My family got me an ENO hammock for Father’s Day, which I look forward to getting a lot of use out of.
I’ve always hated the song “Cat’s in the Cradle” by Harry Chapin. It’s a haunting and depressing message about how quickly kids grow up and about the regret of a father who wasn’t around for his son. So I was glad when I came across this video put out by TD Ameritrade for Father’s Day of that song with re-worked lyrics, telling a different story of fatherhood.
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (1 John 3:1)
