  Who Loves You Best?


It has been said, “It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons.”  I believe on this Father’s Day we could add mothers, daughters, sisters, and brothers to that quotes as well.  It is truly a blessing from God that family and love for one another is not limited to “blood kin.” Throughout our lives we make room in our hearts and add to our families:  fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, brothers and sisters. God places people in our paths and we, just as God adopted each of us into His family, are adopted by those we need, and we adopt those who need us. No, we all don’t have flesh and blood dads, but most of us do have, or have had someone we look up to as a father figure.  It is much easier to become a father than to be one. Sometimes we hurt those who love us best and fell to appreciate them.  This poem should remind us to be thankful to the men who have loved us as true fathers should. There's one sad truth in life I've found while journeying east and west -The only folks we really wound are those we love the best.  We flatter those we scarcely know; we please the fleeting guest, and deal full many a thoughtless blow to those who love us best. ~Ella Wheeler Wilcox   Also, remember, our Heavenly Father loves us more than any man ever could.  Tell Him you are thankful and love Him on this Father’s Day as well.  He loves you best.
