Happy Father’s Day everyone … my prayer is those of us fathers who tend to be missing from home for whatever reason or excuse will make some changes to "be present" more often.  Having said that, we must still give the due appreciation to fathers who often express their love in ways which tend to be more concrete than dramatic. The Micah Mandate turns to the more personal side of things after the more public concerns.
