If Father's Day Is Hard

Two of my closest friends have lost their fathers in recent years, and three other women immediately come to mind whose fathers have died in the last year. Many more, some I know and most I don't, have damaged or broken relationships with their earthly dads.

If for whatever reason this Father's Day is marked by more pain than celebration for you, our heavenly Father, the One who counts stars, hairs, fallen sparrows, and tears, knows your grief. May the Father of mercies comfort your sorrow with reminders of His love today.

"Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word" (2 Thess. 2:16-17. ESV).


  1. Amen, precious one! You are so right.

  2. Father's day become so painful for those who has lost their father. without father how they feel that is unexplained.
