Words of wisdom as a blessing for fathers
May I enter these words of wisdom from the author unknown as a blessing and encouragement to all our God-given dads on their special honored day. Proverbs 22:1-6
Dad’s Greatest Job
I may never be as clever as my neighbor down the street
I may never be as wealthy as some other men I meet
I may never have the glory that some other men have had
But I’ve got to be successful as a little fellow’s dad.
There are certain dreams I cherish that I’d like to see come true
There are things I would accomplish, ere my working time is
But the task my heart is set on is to guide a little lad through
And make myself successful as that little fellow’s dad.
I may never come to glory, I may never gather gold
Men may count me as a failure when my business life is told
But if he who follows after shall be manly, I’ll be glad
Then I’ll know I’ve been successful as a little fellow’s dad.
It’s the one job that I dream of, it’s the task I think of most
If I fail that growing youngster, I’d have nothing else to boast
For though wealth and fame I’d gather, all my future would be sad
If I failed to be successful as a little fellow’s dad.
