following letter is from a teenage son to his father on Fathersí Day. It
reminds us of the value of fathers and that there are great fathers in our
country. This letter talks about the kind of fathers who are making a
positive difference in the lives of their children, especially their teenage
sons. We do have great fathers. Fathers, your sons are watching. Read,
enjoy, and share
with a friend.
father is a man I respect very much and love dearly. He is one of a kind
and can never be replaced. His physical features and unique personality
distinguish him as a gentleman. There is nothing lacking in him, and most
people agree with this. Being multi-talented, he is able to cook, sing,
repair small car engine, paint, and be a good father. I could go on and on
with his talents, but these are the ones that I love the most. It would be
difficult to see my father without the God-given talents that make him the
person he is today!
men tend to change size as they grow other, especially married men; but my
father is one who maintains his weight and is proud of it. Like an elegant
swan, he has a long and lanky appearance that looks best in suits and formal
clothing. His broad shoulders make
him look taller
than he really is, and his full beard give him the distinguished gentleman
Sometimes, when my father is really surprised, he opens his big black eyes
as wide as he can, which can be dreadful if he is upset or tired. Itís a
good thing that he rarely gets angry, so I only see his surprised facial
Cooking is one of my fatherís greatest talents. Ever since I was born, he
cooked for the family and did a good job keeping us healthy. The food he
cooks is always a surprise because he loves to mix all types of ingredients
in his crazy experiments. The dishes always turn out well even when we are
afraid to try them. It is difficult to imagine a tall, slim man in the
kitchen; but my father pulls it off really well. Not only is he a good
cook, he is also fun to be around. He is funny, gracious and kind. He is
usually the life of the party and can make us all laugh and giggle until . .
father, there is nothing lacking. He is a great spiritual influence for all
of us. He is consistent, yet flexible. Love is always visible through his
actions. He is devoted to my mother, providing her with her needs just as
she is with his. Their commitment to each other and God is a perfect
example of a Christian family. I love him so much because he is a true
father. It is through his influence that I learned about Godís love, the
versatility that makes a father. It is important that men use their talent
in their homes to bring love into the family.
Creativity is a good ingredient to keep the fire burning. Not only will the
fire burn continually, but also it will grow larger and warm others around
it. This is what God intended, men loving with versatility.Ē
