      What Makes A Dad?

      God took the strength of a mountain,
      The majesty of a tree,
      The warmth of a summer sun,
      The calm of a quiet sea.

      The generous soul of nature,
      The comforting arm of night,
      The wisdom of the ages,
      The power of the eagle's flight.

      The joy of a morning in spring,
      The faith of a mustard seed,
      The patience of eternity,
      The depth of a family need.

      Then God combined these qualities,
      When there was nothing more to add,
      He knew His masterpiece was complete,
      And so, He called it ... Dad.



      Daddy's Hands

      I remember daddy's hands folded silently in prayer
      And reachin' out to hold me, when I had a nightmare
      You could read quite a story in the callous' and lines
      Years of work and worry had left their mark behind.

      I remember daddy's hands how they held my mama tight
      And patted my back for something done right
      There are things that I'd forgotten that I loved about the man
      But I'll always remember the love in daddy's hands.

      Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin'
      Daddy's hands were hard as steel when I'd done wrong
      Daddy's hands weren't always gentle but I've come to understand
      There was always love in daddy's hands.

      I remember daddy's hands workin' 'til they bled
      Sacrificed unselfishly just to keep us all fed
      If I could do things over, I'd live my life again
      And never take for granted the love in daddy's hands.

      Happy Father's Day!
