Belated Father’s Day thoughts

June 24, 2015

We live in a complicated world.

One of my co-workers has a child fathered by a man who has not exactly been supportive of his son.  It is a long, and unfortunately, fairly typical of a male who cuts and runs when things get tough.

Since then, there is another man that has come into her life, and is a true father and daddy to her son.

The boy’s biological father expresses a bit of an interest around Father’s Day, but it appears to be out of jealousy for the real father figure.

One of the best ways I have heard the immature grown up male described is a “boy that can shave”.  I’ve heard Matt Chandler of the Village Church in Texas use that term.  I’m not sure if it is originally his, but it sure is accurate.

We exchanged a few texts, and commented about the difference between a father and a dad; alternatively the difference between a man and a boy that can shave.

It can take a few seconds to become a father.  Being a dad is a 24/7, 18 plus year commitment.


Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a mix of emotions for many people, ranging from grief, pain, misery, to joy, happiness, and fun.

All fathers have let their families down in some way, it is part of living in a fallen world.


Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day!!

Father’s Day brings a mix of emotions out in people, for a wide variety of reasons.  These can range from things ranging from broken relationships, unmet expectations, poor communication, or abuse, be it physical, emotional, or sexual.
