Notes for Dad

Let’s be honest, ladies.
Our guys do a pretty good job of spoiling us and making us feel appreciated on Mother’s Day. Social media was flooded with photos of gifts, cards, flowers, special treats, breakfasts in bed, brunches, lunches and lots of sweet words.
How can we honor our guys this Father’s Day and make them feel just as loved as we do? Yes, we can buy them a tie or a tool or a gadget or a grill, but perhaps what would make them feel the most loved is if we actually TOLD them.
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds...” Hebrews 10:24 NIV
To spur us all on, we’ve put together the following messages to Dad in a free printable {download here}. Simply download, print off, cut out, write a personal message on the back and tape onto his bathroom mirror (or hide in his car, by his nightstand, or even next to his workout equipment). You will have enough for every day of the week leading up to Father’s Day, with one left for him to find on the big day (Sunday, June 17th). Who knows? Maybe it will become a habit to find something to thank him for every day!
Day 1:
Thank you for giving your all at work and at home.
“Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” Colossians 3:23 NLT
Day 2:
Thank you for making sure we have everything we need.
“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” Matthew 7:9-11 NIV
Day 3:
Thank you for leading our family in the ways of the Lord.
“But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15 NIV
Day 4:
Thank you for teaching us about Jesus.
“Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4 NIV
Day 5:
Thank you for making our home a place we want to be.
“By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.” Proverbs 24:3-4 NIV
Day 6:
Dad, thank you for showing us how to fight hard and finish well.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7 NIV
Day 7:
Dad, thank you for helping us up when we fall.
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NIV
Day 8:
Thank you for believing in us and for being our #1 fan.
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.’” Mark 10:27 NIV
The job of an earthly father is to model the love and ways of our Heavenly Father. That’s a high calling! Let’s join together this Father’s Day and make a concentrated effort to recognize the hard work it takes to be a good and Godly dad.
