Why Fathers’ Day celebrations mostly quiet still remain a mystery. Even with the knowledge that there are some amazing fathers, stereotypical depictions of them are unloving, strong, masculine, unsympathetic among others. This must be one of the reasons for the low hype of this celebration.
To make the #fathersday2017 more prominent for the wonderful fathers this year, The Christian Blog Ghana is introducing the Fathers’ Day Write-Up Promotion. This competition is seeking to celebrate the amazing role played by fathers in Ghana.
In 200 words or less, creatively tells us some of the GODLY values instilled in you by your dad. Include your name, age, phone number and email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org
The first prize is GHC 20.00 worth of airtime, a special feature done by us on your dad for our social media pages and your creative piece will be posted on the Christian Blog Ghana.
The second prize is GHC 15.00 worth of airtime and your creative piece will be published on the Christian Blog Ghana.
The third prize is GHC 5.00 worth of airtime.
The deadline for submission of entries is Thursday, June 15, 2017.
We look forward to reading some creative pieces on the GODLY impact that our dad’s have instilled in us over the years!
As you might know, Fathers’ Day is approaching here in Ghana. It’s this Sunday, 21st of June and as to how the celebrations got to the third Sunday of June instead of the second, I cannot really tell but I still have this letter for you.
I appreciate the fact that you brought me into this world. I really do because Science has made me understand that it was your semen that fertilised ovaries to begin the conception process in my mum. I do appreciate that a lot. I cannot tell how you treated my mom when she was pregnant because I was not present but since we are both alive and strong, I guess you did not give her too much trouble or else we wouldn’t exist.
I cannot say you didn’t raise me too because if I did, I would be a liar. If for nothing at all your family’s money did – it took me through nursery school all the way to college. I appreciate that because I know most people do not get this kind of opportunity especially when they lose their daddies at a young age.
I don’t know how life would have been if I had had you around especially when I was growing up. Would I have been a daddy’s baby? I don’t know if I would be rushing to you each day to tell you stories about what happened to me during the day or you were going to be that kind of daddy that I would be hiding from. Would you have made that kind of impact I see in most of friends who are always sharing interesting stories about how their dads never spared the rod on them or you wouldn’t have made any difference at all? I have had a number of males advising me but I do not know how an instruction from you would have sounded like. I am certain that would have made a lot of difference in my life.
Fathers’ Day is only two days away and people will be celebrating the impact their daddies have made in their lives. As usual, I am going to remain silent the entire day and imagine how my life would have been if we had met.
I know we would meet someday, in Heaven for sure (Revelations 21 :4) where I will run straight into your arms for the hug that I have always wanted and for those encouraging words that only daddies know how to give. I will ensure you fill me in on every story that I missed while growing up. Just prepare yourself for that ok…
