My dad has taught me for years that, financially, we should plan as if we’re going to live to be 100 years old. Spiritually and emotionally, however, I would like to assert that we should live as if the world is ending at the stroke of midnight.
Because, for some, it just might.
Some fathers left before their children were born, some fathers have chosen to separate themselves from their kids, and still others were never known by their offspring. While we dads are FAR from perfect, we ALL have a Heavenly Father who wants to help fill that gaping hole in our spirit left by imperfect dads.
"It's gonna be a tough road, for sure, but you can handle it. Nobody will think to tell you this, but you're much tougher than what you give yourself credit for.
Yeah, there'll be setbacks, disappointments and pain, but overall, you're in for a wild ride, kid."
If you’re looking for the ugly, vile and putrid in life, it’s there. But if you CHOOSE to look for it, I think you’ll find the glory in this world far outweighs the gloom. Like when you’re taking a walk, and suddenly look up and see one of the most beautiful sunsets you’ve ever witnessed.
