Father's Day Humor:

Humorous (but o-so-true)

  • This is what my son said to me when he returned from boot-camp. "Dad, you're not as dumb as I thought"

  • On the occasion of my brother's 21st birthday, my Dad said," Happy Birthday son. Now that you are a legal adult, remember you can go to jail with the big boys!"

  • My dad always said "You can't get lost if you don't know where you are." clw in co

  • My father's wise words have kept me out of some trouble, but not all...he used to say frequently, "Whenever in doubt: don't!" Unfortunately I didn't doubt enough. BB in IL

Father's Day Prayer (by Richard Fairchhild)

Thank God for how he loves us 
how he sets the example of parenthood

We also thank you God today for our parents 
- especially for our fathers -
We pray that whether they are here with us still - or with you -
that you might bless them
   that you would forgive - as we forgive - any failings that they
   may have had or still have
   that you might bring to yourself and hallow all the good they did
   or do,
   and lead them in righteousness with cords of human kindness and
   ties of love now and forevermore. Amen.
