At Age – Dad – Here is a graphic I saw floating on social media. It talks about different stages of life and dad.
At Age – Dad …
At 6: DAD I love you.
At 10: DAD Whatever.
At 16: My DAD is so annoying.
At 18: I wanna leave this house.
At 25: DAD, you were right.
At 30: I want to go to DAD’S house.
At 50: I don’t want to lose my DAD.
At 70: I would give up everything for my DAD to be here with me.
SHARE this post on your wall if you appreciate & love your DAD whether he is here or not.
I grew up without my father in my life. I forgive my dad for not being in my life. I pray that my dad gets right with God one day. He will have to answer to God on judgement day not me or my sister.
It is also interesting how our kids seem to behave like this to us. The rebel as they grow older. They step on your toes as a child and your heart as they get older. Then, they grow even older and realize all we thought them.
Just remember no matter what men we are the spiritual leaders and we must raise up our children in the ways of the Lord so when they grow older they won’t depart. They may fall and go astray, but they will come back. Look at the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11-32.
No matter the stage we go through, we still must honor of father and our mother. One day we wake up and our parents are no longer living or even us for that fact. We are never promised tomorrow.
Tell your Dad or Mom that you love them today! Feel free to share this post on your favorite social network too.
I didn’t make the graphic, I just saw it online and wanted to share it with my readers.
