Happy Belated Geek Father's Day

I just wanted to wish a happy belated Father's Day to all my fellow geek dads out there.

If you are reading this, the chances are pretty high that you are, or know someone who cares a tremendous amount for their kids.  As challenging and frustrating as it can be, there is no doubt that being a dad is my favorite role in life.  I am sure that it is probably the same for you, too.

I was regaled with multiple rounds of "Happy Father's Day" from my two awesome little geeks all throughout the day.  Little cards that they made from their Sunday School class and lots of love.  I enjoyed my time with them tremendously, and the honor and privilege that it was, to be their dad.

Being a kid's pastor, I was searching the Internet for ideas for a craft that my church kids could make, and came across a really neat poem that I wanted to share with you guys.  I have tried without success to find an official page for this author, and would be happy to link to it if anyone comes across it.

What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
 wants to catch you before you fall
 but instead picks you up,
 brushes you off,
 and lets you try again. 

 A dad is someone who
 wants to keep you from making mistakes
 but instead lets you find your own way,
 even though his heart breaks in silence
 when you get hurt. 

 A dad is someone who
 holds you when you cry,
 scolds you when you break the rules,
 shines with pride when you succeed,
 and has faith in you even when you fail.


Though none of us are perfect, let me say thank you for being a dad to your kids.  Thank you for making a lifelong impact on their lives.
