God Made A Helper

This weekend, I hope you snag some precious time with your family. I hope you honor your Dads and the Dads in your life.

But past the cook-outs and the homemade cards with covered in tiny, finger paint hand-prints, there are big kids surviving life without ever having known the guidance and wisdom and strange humor of a Dad.

We know quite a few of them, and they "celebrate" the day with a roll of their eyes, a well-placed curse word, or complete indifference.

They push down the pain of being forgotten and wear a suspiciously "easy" smile. They swear they don't care, that he was never worth their time. What they really mean is, "I was never worth his time."

Please enjoy the time with your family. Love them extra-well.

But refuse to forget the pain throbbing just past your edges, well within your reach.

Take two minutes and watch this. It will change you, if you let it.
