What Makes a Dad?

I saw this poem recently and thought it captured what qualities make up dads beautifully. It's neat how I can see these traits rolled up into the men in my life. And I see many qualities to build into my son for the day he becomes a father. 

What Makes a Dad?

God took the strength of a mountain, 
The majesty of a tree, 
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,

The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,

The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,

Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it...Dad.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! We love you and cherish you more than you will ever know! I want to wish my Dad, my hubby and my father-in-law all the best today!  Your position in our family is of infinite worth and we are so grateful for your presence in our lives. Thank you for all the times you've believed in us, you've been there for us, and all the times you've prayed for us and showed us a bit of the Heavenly Father's love.
Happy Father's Day!
