All they need

Last weekend, we observed "Men's" Day, which is officially for "Defenders of the Fatherland," but in our church at least we honor the men, whether or not they've served in the military. They are heroes to us!

In a brilliant effort by certain church members, our appreciation of the brothers included a little video presentation featuring several of the Sunday school kids. They were asked to share about their fathers.

The children mostly described their fathers as big and strong (even fat), smart, kind, and as very loving of their families.

What did the children wish for their fathers? "Do well at work, Dad," was an oft-repeated reply.

But there was another answer that came up often. Many children wished their fathers success, but at the same time, pleaded, "Come home earlier, Dad." What a simple wish!

Kids say it best! We want our loved ones to do well. We want them to be productive and always be challenging themselves and striving towards their goals. We are proud of them.

But at the end of the day, we just want them to be...home.
