I liked a comment I found online.   A true father is an ordinary man whose life is transformed into being a SUPERMAN by genuine LOVE for his wife and his children.

              It is Father’s Day in Australia and I pay tribute to all the men out there, young, old , infirm. Indeed, all men anywhere in the world who are proud to be men, who have taken their FATHERHOOD opportunity to guide a younger generation into a ‘higher’ place. 

         This man does not have to PROVE HIMSELF or his children, by scaling Everest or crossing the oceans,  

          He does not have to be a MASSIVE hulk in stature or be a HERO in the eyes of society, He may be the genuinely gentle-man who loves the finer arts but   is a man of such internal character that he is capable of LOVING PASSIONATELY all the frailer in life that need his unique fatherhood quality of care and guidance.  

             Happy Father’s Day!    

A thank You Tribute to all who truly value this opportunity.     I don’t need to give anyone a POWER DRILL to tell them they are valued and appreciated.    

            God Bless you each one!             A-men.        

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Still a good post even four years later, Faye. I like your closing comment. You don’t have to give a power drill to tell someone they are a good father. Love it! So true😊

    A lovely tribute, Faye, highlighting what makes a true father. My dad was just such a man, with strong faith in God that manifested itself in internal character, love, wisdom, and more. My brother and I were incredibly blessed!
