What Dad Means To Me

Since Father’s Day is coming up, I thought I would talk about what Dad means to me!

Dad is a good provider. He has kept a roof over my head since my divorce.

Being a man of peace, he has also sought on countless occasions to calm those troubled waters. I’m very grateful to him for his efforts, even when they haven’t met with success.

Dad is a man of prayer. Every morning, he and Mom can be found having devotions and praying together. When things in my life have sailed beyond my control, he has been there to pray with me and hold my hand as I walked through the greatest trials and challenges that life has thrown at me.

Dad is very handy. Our home is a beautiful testimony to Dad’s handiness with everything from hammer and nails to the beautiful grass, trees, and raised garden beds he put in so that Mom and I wouldn’t have to bend down as much to weed.

Dad loves sports! But…everyone who knows me well knows that I am completely and happily clueless when it comes to sports. I can still listen to Dad talk about sports and his favorite teams for hours! He comes totally alive. I love watching him be that alive!

Dad is very quiet. It is hard to get him talking sometimes unless it’s about sports or about God (another instance where he becomes totally alive).

Dad also has a great sense of humor. It’s very dry and quiet, but every once in a while he’ll come out with something unexpected that puts us all into stitches!

Dad to me means all of these things: provision, peace, prayer, handiness, sports, humor.

I love these aspects of Dad’s character. What do you love about your Dad? What does Dad mean to you? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
