Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.


Happy Father’s Day

By on June 15, 2007

Like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is celebrated at different times in the different countries in the world. Several countries will be honoring fathers this weekend as they usually do on the third Sunday of June. A full list of dates when Father’s Day is celebrated and where is available here

The lyrics to the song Measure of a Man by the group 4Him are perfect in telling the fathers in our lives how much we appreciate them. I particularly like the chorus –

The measure of a man
Is not how tall you stand
How wealthy or intelligent you are
[…]the measure of a man
God knows and understands
For He looks inside to the bottom of your heart
And what’s in the heart defines
The measure of a man
