What makes a father?

The saying goes “Anybody can be a Father, but it takes a real man to be a Dad”. What does that mean? To be a Real Father, It first takes God to be the center of your life. It takes a total surrender of yourself and your time. It takes your total attention to every detail. It takes just about everything you fathers-day-history.s600x600got.

A is for Admiration

T is for Thankful

H is for Humble

E is for Endurance

R is for being the “Rock” that holds the family together!
