Parent’s Day is annually celebrated in the United States on the fourth Sunday in July similar to a combination of Father’s Day and Mother’s Day. This is a special day for all parents to receive recognition for the amazing role that they play in the lives of their children. Parent’s Day is recognized on a federal, state and local level. In 1994, President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional Resolution into law for recognizing the role of parenting for rearing of children. It celebrates the special bonds of love between parental figures and their children.
Parent’s Day is also a time for people to send cards and gifts including flowers, cakes and food hampers to those who play an important role as a positive parental figure in their lives. Parents have a great responsibility as a whole and must lead and guide their children in the way of the Lord. Parents teach, motivate, build, lead, inspire, listen, enhance, love and so much more. Parents must live a godly life before their children and instill positive values in their lives as much as possible. We live in an evil world which makes the challenge of raising children even more difficult. However, with God, all things are possible if we put Him first in our lives and seek Him to help us with everything.
As we get ready to observe this wonderful holiday, let us all remember how blessed we all are to have parents and how our parents were there for us through thick and thin. Some of us may have had an unpleasant life with their parents and could still be hurt right now. You do not have to worry or to hold on to what happened in the past. God will always be there for us and will bring peace to any given situation
whether good or bad.
To all of the great parents around the world, this is your special day to relax, have fun and just enjoy yourself in a mighty way. Happy Parent’s Day to all of our wonderful parents. You will always have a special place in our hearts.
