Father's Day Messages

These Father's Day messages are about what fatherhood really means. Some of the messages are famous quotes about fathers, but most were written by the author of this collection.

Do you remember these famous lines in Thornton Wilder's play, Our Town?

"Does anyone ever realize life while they live it...every, every minute?"

"No. Saints and poets maybe...they do some.”

Fatherhood is like that. Fathers of young children sometimes do not realize the profound influence they have on their children's lives and on their souls. What is just a moment in time can be a child's lasting memory.

Father's Day is the one day a year to reflect on the messages a father sends to his children and on the messages that should be sent to every father.

Father's Day Message about Fathers and Sons

The message below is a revamp of a famous saying about parenthood from an unknown author. This one is guaranteed to put a lump in your throat.

Part of a father's role is to prepare a child to become an adult. That is the message in the Father's Day card below.

Message from Kids to Fathers
Message from Kids to Fathers

“Let's really look at one another!...It goes so fast. We don't have time to look at one another. I didn't realize. So all that was going on and we never noticed..."

– from Our Town by Thornton Wilder

Do you really look at your children? Do you truly make eye-contact? What does a child see when he looks into your eyes? Does he see love?

Young children have not developed the skill to mask their feelings. They are not yet actors. If a stranger looks into the eyes of a young child, do you know what he sees? He sees what kind of father the child has.

Message about the Measure of a Man and Fatherhood
Message about the Measure of a Man and Fatherhood

A child without a father in his life is a special-needs child. In Biblical Hebrew, the word orphan doesn't mean a child without parents; it means a fatherless child. There are 17 commandments in the Bible for the individual and society to provide for the orphan because of his disadvantage. It follows, then, that to have a father is indeed a blessing.

This is a famous Father's Day quote from an American actor.

This message conveys the definition of a father:

God's Blessing for Fathers from the Bible
God's Blessing for Fathers from the Bible

The Biblical King David considered children to be a blessing, as he wrote in the message above. Not all of his children grew into respected adults, but, even so, he considered it a blessing to be the father of many.

The American writer and activist Lydia M. Child (1802 – 1880) said it this way:

"“Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!”

Much has been written about the term Dad as opposed to the term father. Some of the popular sentiments are conveyed in the two Father's Day messages below:

The message above is a special tribute to the role grandfathers play in their grandchildren's live. The grandfather is a child's first perception of ancestry and of the family tree which stretches back in time over thousands of years.

Grandfathers are also remembered on Father's Day. The coffee mug at the right has great reviews from people who gave this as a gift to granddad and from granddads who received it. The coffee mug is crafted from porcelain and was designed by American folk artist Lorrie Veasey Cuppa. If you've got two grandfathers, better order two! The mug can be sent directly to granddads from Amazon.com.

      Of course, my dad is gone, and it's passed Father's Day. I was curious to see how long this hub was. Like many of your other hubs, you have spent a lot of time putting this together. I didn't realize that "orphan" in Hebrew meant "fatherless," as opposed to "without parents." The American and Hebrew culture are different in their ideas about the role of father. Today, the trend is for both the man and woman to support the family financially; perhaps, not equally, but somewhere within the same income bracket. The tendency is also to have fewer time for the children on the part of both parents. I think of my dad often, even though he's no longer on earth. It is during those times of reflection on him that I feel my greatest strength. ***
