Happy Father's Day!

Paul Mayfield
Rev. Gerald Britt, Sr.

My Father when I was...

4 years old: My daddy can do everything!
5 years old: My daddy knows a whole lot
6 years old: My dad is smarter than your dad
8 years old: My dad doesn't know exactly everything
10 years old: In the olden days when my did grew up, things sure different
12 years old: Oh, well, naturally, Father doesn't know anything about that. He's too old
14 years old: Don't pay any attention to my father. He is so old fashioned
21 years old: Him? My Lord, he's hopelessly out of date!
25 years old: Dad knows a little bit about it, but then he should because he has been around 
30 years old: Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks
35 years old: I'm not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad
40 years old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it. He was so wise and had a world of experience. 
50 years old: I'd give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this over with him. Too bad I didn't appreciate how smart he was.I could have learned a lot from him.
