Written by scoopsnews on June 17, 2017 – 3:16 am -

For those of us who never had anyone to call “Dad”, I for one know how hard this time of the year can be. For many years I felt so left out, until one day I met my Heavenly Father!!!! Now the void that was so real in my life is filled to over flowing!!!!! Don’t ever think that you are Fatherless!!!!! He loves you more than any mortal man ever could!!! For those who have dads,,,,, cherish them!!!!!
