Showing Love Father's Day
My father passed away last August. I am showing love by sending Father's Day cards to my brother and two brothers-in-law.

I got your tongue in cheek remark Jack. Ah, the absurdities of life, I relish them!

Jack: Sorry. E-mail loses body language and voice tone.
Glad you are in agreement about Father's Day.

Like Madison1101, I got the wrong impression. Unfortunately it is all too common to misconstrue sarcasm or humor in email because it is almost similar to being autistic.
There are no nonverbal clues from which we can draw any hints of meaning. Sometimes emoticons help.
Next time you post something sarcastic, let us know you are being facetious by sticking out your tongue at us :-P

Bruce--Glad you got the point.
Madison--Did you read the SECOND paragraph, which began, "If this sounds absurd..."? I was illustrating absurdity frequently found here by being absurd myself.

I called my dad and wished him happy father's day and told him I loved him. My dad had never told me that he loves me, but this time he did. I finally wore him down. I'm going to bake a cake to give him today and I bought him a really cool utility knife that folds up.

How do we manage to take honor for our fathers and turn it into such a fuss?
Strain at a gnat and swallow a camel maybe?

I think Jack was making that statment to make another point about the ridiculous nature of the "keeping of pagan holidays" arguments elsewhere. I don't think he is against Father's day at all.

Jack, that is the most ridiculous thing I have seen on these blogs in a long time.
My church had two family dedication services this morning. It was great to see these young dads committing publicly to raise their babies in the fear and admonition of the Lord. If only more men would step up and take the lead in their families.
To show love and buy a gift for Dad and make him a special meal is not paganism. It is honoring him for the role he plays in the lives of his children.

Some people don't know difference between honor and worship. From JT's other blogs, 10 Com's don't matter anyway so why the honor statement?

"Honor thy father and thy mother"
Yeah Jack, that has pagan roots.
---John_T on 6/18/06|
Why, don't you know if you observe the new pagan holiday of Father's Day, you're taking your eyes off God and worshipping a man? Where do we find it in the Bible?
If this sounds absurd, compare this with remarks made about Christmas, Valentine's day, and the like on these blogs.

My father died on October 6, 1997. I have been fatherless since then. My Heavenly
Father is my all in all now.

The only Father I have is my heavenly Father. My natural father passed away in February 2005. I will celebrate by remembering the good things of my natural father and enjoying the reality of my heavenly Father.
