I had wanted to post something about Father's Day this past weekend, but just didn't get around to it. I did, however, host my annual "Grandpa Campout" at my home this past Friday night. I camped out with 9 of my 13 grandchildren, roasted hot dogs, had an epic squirt gun battle (my weapon of choice was the garden hose - I was outnumbered, so I needed the superior firepower), ate homemade ice-cream, told Bible stories, let off some fireworks, and watched an old Disney movie. We had a great time!
Then, last night I watched a fascinating documentary on my local PBS station about men losing their fathers. My Dad died 10 years ago, so I could relate. Neil Chethik hosted the program and you can visit his website here. And then, this morning, I saw this bit of good news regarding fatherhood:
"The majority (71%) of American Adults continue to believe that being a father is one of the most important roles a man can fill in today’s world, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey." Count me in the 71%. Story here.
