A Godly Man

I Love a Godly Man
A man who has postponed his plans to fly planes and sail to exotic places
So that his children will have memories of a dad who taught them to fish, swim and change a bicycle tire

I Love a Godly Man
A man whose strong hands handle the greasy, dark, and dirty jobs that no one else wants to do
And gently pat a fussy baby to sleep

I Love a Godly Man
Who carries the weight of the world on his shoulders during the day
And carries small children on them during a game of “Horse” at night

I Love a Godly Man
A man who understands that real Success is not found in the boardroom
But in watching his children grow and learn and love

I Love a Godly Man
A man whose character is sterling and velvet, whose handshake is better than gold, and whose word stands for honor, integrity and trust.

I Love a Godly Man
A man who is creating a spiritual legacy that will affect generations to come
And who knows that his real treasure is stored up in a better place

I Love a Godly Man
A man who knows that real strength is not found in the gym
But on his knees

I Love a Godly Man
and I am proud that he is my husband and the father of my children.

To him and all the Godly Men like him:
A Very Happy Father’s Day
