(my dad, my son, shay, and myself in colorado)
Here's to my father who knew me, loved me and accepted me. Henry Cloud and John Townsend in their book, 'How People Grow' stated that, "Acceptance is the bridge connecting the gap between being known and loved." 1Corinthinians 15 says, "Accept one another just as Christ accepted you."
There maybe nothing more important for a father to give to his children than the gift of acceptance.
