All the Grand-Father’s, gran gran’s, uncles, brothers, cousins, pops, poppi’s pop pop’s, mentors etc who took us fishing, taught us how to ride a bike, picked us up when we were down, prayed with and for us, held our hands when we needed it most, disciplined us accordingly, stood tall against the rain, loved us through the pain and smiled with a high 5 and said next time champ, when we thought we disappointed him so much..Happy Father’s Day!! We hope you enjoy the video above. Bless you and Thank you!

The love and care of a father is as essential as sunlight is in our lives. It is his protection that shelters us, his care that nurtures us, his guidance that leads us and his love that fills us with joy. Father’s Day is the day to pay tribute to that wondrous creature called the Father. Great people all over the world have, from time to time, praised their own fathers; pondered over the greatness of fatherhood and commented on what goes on to make ideal fathers. Happy Father’s Day!

One of the greatest gifts I ever had Came from God; I call him Dad!

Have an outstanding Father’s Day!

Rev. Poe
