Pastor Dad

Today I am attempting to publish a post when I'm not even home. Isn't that so exciting? I'm writing this on Saturday and hoping it will post automatically on Sunday morning. So if you're reading this on Sunday, my plot worked! If you're not reading this, well, never mind.

I've decided today to write about my son's sister's uncle's nephew's grandma's husband's son. (Did you get that?)

If you DIDN'T get that, I'll just tell you that I'm writing this post about Steve and about Father's Day.

And on Father's Day, what could be better than a few Father's Day quotes? (Well, that and "Soap on a Rope!")


It is admirable for a man to take his son fishing, but there is a special place in heaven for the father who takes his daughter shopping.
-- John Sinor

When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.
-- Jewish Proverb

When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.
-- Mark Twain

And my favorite quote?

The most important thing that a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
-- Attributed to both Theodore M. Hesburgh and David O. McKay


I am very thankful that my children have a dad who opens the door for me, thanks me for dinner, isn't afraid to help with housework, compliments me, affirms me, and prays with me.

Will that make a difference in the way Nathan treats HIS wife? Yes!

Will that make a difference in the kind of man Sarah chooses to marry? Yes!

So today, I would like to honor a certain Steve Smith (whom the kids have lovingly dubbed, "Pastor Dad,") for being the kind of dad who affirms his children, laughs with them, prays with them, and teaches them--both by word and by example.

And I'm especially thankful that "Pastor Dad" is the kind of dad who loves his children's mother so well.

Happy Father's Day, honey!

Wonderful tribute, beautifully written, amazingly lived. Steve, you are one in a million.

And you have the love and admiration of people far away who have never even met you...like me!

Happy Father's Day!
