Ek wil begin deur elke Vader geluk te wens met
Sondag se herdekking van Vadersdag!
Elkeen van julle is baie kosbaar.
Ek is gelukkig om nog 'n pa te he en ek sal altyd dankbaar en lief vir die pa wees wat my Hemelse Vader my gegee het.
Al stem ek nie altyd saam met wat my pa se nie.
En ook wil ek dankie se vir die man en pappa wat my dogterjie
van die Vader ontvang het.Sy kon nie vir beter gevra het nie.
Hier is net ietsie wat ek van die net afgetrek het vir al die mans
Father's Day is a day of commemoration and celebration of Dad. It is a day to not only honor your father, but all men who have acted as a father figure in your life - whether as Stepfathers, Uncles, Grandfathers, or "Big Brothers."
Inspirational Father's Day Quotes
Whether you're a daddy-to-be or a seasoned granddad, Father's Day is a wonderful opportunity to bask in the glow of your family's affection and appreciation. This year, you can also make Father's Day an opportunity for self-reflection and personal growth. Ask yourself: Are you the father you always wanted to be? Are you the father your children deserve? Here are some thoughts on the subject from history's greatest writers, thinkers, politicians and even comedians.
On Leading By Example
"Children have more need of models than critics."
- French moralist Joseph Joubert (1754-1824)
Modern parenting experts agree. Role modeling desired behavior is a far better disciplinary tactic than harsh punishments - not to mention more effective one.
On Disciplining Our Children
"There must always be a struggle between a father and son, while one aims at power and the other at independence."
-18th century English lexicographer Samuel Johnson
At the root of countless disciplinary issues is a child's developmentally appropriate - but nonetheless maddening - quest for independence. While children need the freedom to explore and make mistakes in the process, a good father provides clear boundaries and gentle guidance throughout their journey.
On Being Humbled
"A man never stands as tall as when he kneels to help a child."
- Knights of Pythagoras
Fatherhood is the ultimate lesson in humility - which most of us realize the first time they hear our newborn baby cry. (And if we missed that moment, then we definitely eat some humble pie the first time our little one spits up all over our new suit - just as we are rushing to an important meeting.) Children change not only the particulars of our lives - but our priorities. And once we embrace that change, our lives can become more meaningful than ever before.
On Keeping Perspective
"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
When it comes to raising teenagers, we may not ever be able to win. If we don't offend them, we embarrass them. The key to making it out of this stage alive is to keep loving your kids - while you remind yourself daily that they will grow out of this phase.
