Dear Father in heaven, Thank you for creating fatherhood and for men who are courageous and sacrificial while they do it. Praise God for men that take on the challenge of fatherhood, who grow into it, adapt to it, love it. Thank you for my dad, even though I have no significant memories of him. Even though he died at 33, he left a legacy. He had already started building something that would last. He left big shoes to fill and a wife determined to fill them. Thank you for my mother. For their marriage. For their commitment to you. Thank you for all parents who love their children and raise them to be responsible, caring, giving, and God-honoring. You leave your legacy on all of us. What a tribute a good father is to you, the greatest of all fathers, the one and only. I praise and thank you for who you are. Amen.
