WhenUPray is featuring words from fathers for the month of June.
We present to you Eric Owens and his family.
Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, will be with us in truth and love.
2 John 1:3 NIV
Fatherhood is very important to me. My father was killed when I was four years old…so that means I grew up without ever knowing my dad personally.
I don’t have any memories of affection from my dad, like him telling me that he love me or even just hugging me. I make it a point to be there in my children’s lives. I thank the Lord that I don’t have a problem expressing love to my children. I make it a point to hug and tell them I love them often.
