Today being a day to honor our father’s, we began the post
with the Fifth Commandment. This Commandment is the first one
with a promise attached to it!
So as we enjoy this day with our earthly father if he is still with us [mine has past away 23 years ago], let us not forget
our Heavenly Father as well, for after all; Have we not all one
Father? Did He not create us? ( Malachi 2:10 )
Therefore on this day I would like to share the following poem
with you. A poem dedicated to our Heavenly Father!
He can calm the troubled waters
When you walk in dark despair.
There is hope when you feel helpless
Knowing that the Lord is there…
Sharing in your sunshine moments
Or in valleys deep and wide,
He is always by your side.
There’s no other friend so faithful
Through the sunshine and rain,
Through the teardrops and the laughter,
In your joy and in your pain.
We could never, ever thank Him
For His love He gives so free,
Never changing…never ending
Throughout all eternity.
Oh, the wonder of all wonders
As we live from day to day,
Knowing that we have a Father
Who is with us all the way.
Poet, Gertrude B. McClain
