Reason to SMILE #169: SUPERMAN
“No, you’re not!” my siblings and I all protested.
“I am! I can lift this car with one hand,” Dad claimed.
We all responded with cheers to see our dad prove he was indeed Superman.
“Ok, here goes.” Without hesitation, Dad continued, “Wanna see me do it again?”
We protested again, “You didn’t do anything!”
With a grin on his face, Dad explained, “I did it so fast you couldn’t see me!”
He may not have lifted our car but there has never been any doubt in my mind that my dad is Superman. There’s no better dad and I’m grateful for him. He is my biggest fan and I can always depend on him for support, for help, for wise advice and for prayer.
I’m blessed to have such a good father in my life, someone I can look up to, follow in his footsteps and trust to always love and accept me. You may not be able to say the same – at least not about an earthly father. But you do have a Heavenly Father who is always good. He loves you and will always be there for you. He will never let you down or disappoint you. He’s even better than Superman! 😉
Cape or no cape – my dad always makes me SMILE and I know it’s because he’s following the example of the greatest Father of all!
Psalm 68:5 (ESV) Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation.
James 1:17 (ESV) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
1 John 3:1 (NIV) See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
