A Fathers approval

I have seen my children go way out of their norm just to do things that would please their Daddy.
I have seen my daughter glow when her Daddy calls her his "little girl."
I have seen my son choose to leave some free or play time he was having so that he could help his Dad do a job that was a lot harder and a lot less pleasent.
Just to be in his Daddy's presence and spend time with him was more important to him than the easy way out.
My children rejoice when they know that Daddy is home from work, it is like they are saying "Daddy is home and he will take care of us."
My children just love to have their dad give them a hug and and let them know he loves them.
A child needs their Fathers affirmation in their lives.
A mother is great for giving comfort, fixing boo boos and staying up all night with a sick child.
However, a child yearns for their Fathers approval.
They long to hear "great job" and see that smile of approval that only a Father can give.
Children want and need their Father to show them and tell them that He loves them.
As Christians we all long to please our Heavenly Father as well.
We strive to Glorify Him with our lives.
At the end of our earthly life our goal is to hear "Well done my good and faithful servant."

When we were young we would race my mother to the door when daddy came home -- hoping to get the first kiss. We didn't win very often!

Sweet post.

There is probably nothing more important to a child than his/her father's approval. Thank you for sharing this lovely post.
