Happy Father's Day

~Capturing the Moments~

No one has ever done it better than Norman Rockwell!

Fathers play a unique and important role in the lives of their children. As mentor, protector, and provider, a father fundamentally influences the shape and direction of his child's character by giving love, care, discipline, and guidance. As we observe Father's Day, our nation honors fatherhood and urges fathers to commit themselves selflessly to the success and well-being of their children. And we reaffirm the importance of fathers in the lives of their children. Raising a child requires significant time, effort, and sacrifice; and it is one of the most hopeful and fulfilling experiences a man can ever know. A father can derive great joy from seeing his child grow from infancy to adulthood... 
Responsible fatherhood is important to a healthy and civil society. Numerous studies confirm that children whose fathers are present and involved in their lives are more likely to develop into prosperous and healthy adults. Children learn by example; and they need their father's presence as examples of virtue in their daily lives. A child's sense of security can be greatly enhanced by seeing his parents in a loving and faithful marriage. 
Father's Day Proclamation by 
George W. Bush 

Heavenly Father, 

Bless all fathers today, guide them that they may better lead their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to You. Help them to be strong and of good courage knowing that You have every little thing under control. Let them place full trust in You. 


Many blessings this Father's Day!
