A father is someone who not only tells his kids he loves them, he shows it.
A father is someone who is always true to his word.
A father is someone who greets his kids with open arms, no matter what they've done.
A father is someone to whom his children can always come for advice, for encouragement, or to simply listen.
A father is someone in whose presence his children always feel safe.
A father is someone who teaches his kids to be kind, to accept others, to be responsible, to forgive when they've been wronged, and to live each day to the fullest.
A father is someone who wants what is best for his kids, even if that means he sometimes has to say, "no."
A father is someone who beams with delight at the mere thought of his children.
Whether we know it or not, we all have a Father like that. Every one of us. The sooner we discover Him, the sooner we will find the peace, hope, love, and healing we're looking for.
"See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are!" ~1 John 3:1a, NLT
