Trying to think of just the right quotation or Bible verse for Father’s Day, to make your card special, more of a blessing. Here are some collected verses and quotations that may help you. Remember to choose yours carefully, in order to be a blessing. This is not a time to be preachy. It is a time to honor. I usually gave my father a homemade card telling him how much I loved him.
