Pinoy Father Celebrating Father's Day In Thailand 2022

Every December 5 is Father's Day in Thailand, as well as the birthday of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. It is a national holiday. Thais celebrate Father's Day by spending time with their fathers, such as by having a meal or going on a picnic. 

Fathers are extremely important in a family. When there is strife in our family and broken relationships, our role as fathers is vital. Our presence and protection are important; our children need our strength and love as the source of their value and inspiration.

I Ate Kuyaw Tiyaw Gai | Father's Day 2022

Kuyaw Tiyaw Noodle Gai

My wife Nittie made Kuway Tiyaw Gai (Picture Above), one of my favorite spicy noodles in Thailand. This is already my Father's Day treat before the day of Father's day tomorrow. Thank you very much.

I've been a father for eight years now. When I think back on the years when our children couldn't help themselves yet (like bathing, eating, pooping, and more) I can't help but thank our Father Almighty. We couldn't afford to get a nanny, so we did almost everything by ourselves. I thank our Abba in Heaven for His strength so I did not get off when we started hitting a bumpy road. I'm sure there will be more to expect on the way and every day I pray for His grace.
If you are a father, Happy Father's Day to you. You are the true superhero to your children and family.
"The righteous man leads a blameless life;
Blessed are his children after him." (Proverbs 20:7

We Are Thankful For Our Children

By Ianpassion
Time flies!

Abba says that our children are heritage and reward from Him (Psalm 127:3). Yes indeed, they are! That truth is totally different from the existing ideas around us. For them, their children are their property but for us, our children are our heaven's gift. So we cherish our children more than we own them.

Dad, A History Maker

By Ianpassion
The credit belongs to the original author picture

The picture above speaks lots of truth about us "fathers". We are the history makers. One day our children when they become adults they will remember what we have done for them. They will remember how much we have given our lives for them so they can grow in a family where they are loved, valued, and protected.

Taking The Children To The Riverfront Nearby

Connecting with ourselves in nature and spending our time outdoors has been helpful to rejuvenate our mind and body. 

It is good that we could find time to take a break from our regular busy routines. We took the children to the nearby riverside where we did our dinner night camping.  The way heading there was not easy but lots of fun.

The Journey of Fatherhood Reflection

By Ianpassion
My son Nemi was hiking with me at Kaew Mae Pan, Chiangmai, Thailand

I am always contemplating how I can dedicate my best time to my children while they are still young. One day, they will embark on their own paths, pursuing their dreams and starting their own families.
I am reflecting on the profound impact of spiritual values in our culture and homes. Ephesians 6:4 advises fathers, saying, "Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."

Here are some questions that I find worth pondering:

1. What causes our children to become angry and disrespectful towards their fathers?

2. How can fathers discipline their children in a way that is understood as an expression of love and earns their respect?

3. How can fathers incorporate the teachings of the Lord into their children's upbringing?

I have witnessed elderly individuals who carry deep regrets about their past mistakes. They yearn to rectify the wrongs they committed, but sadly, it remains an unfulfilled dream. Instead, they must face the consequences until their last breath in this world.

In the Kingdom of our Almighty Father, I strongly believe that fatherhood holds great significance. A father who is committed to nurturing his children is unwavering in his dedication, offering them his time, resources, and love. On the other hand, whoever lacks fathering qualities tends to exert control over his children. He manipulates rather than guides them, and his followers become mere performers, akin to slaves.

The Almighty Father finds immense joy in dining and spending time with His children. He cherishes those moments when they can freely converse without formalities or hidden agendas. His happiness knows no bounds when He witnesses His children feeling at ease and comfortable in His presence. His glory shines brightest when His children find satisfaction in Him.

Fathers Our Children Need Us Personally

It is always rewarding to see how fast our children grow and learn. They are no longer what they once were. I have found that every day is a treasure to be cherished.

Regardless of how busy or tired we are, we must always make time for our children. Digital or virtual entertainment programs should not take the place of our quality time with them. We must assist our children in connecting with reality, nature, people, and, most importantly, with our Abba Almighty.

Hearing You Are Loved

By Ianpassion

No matter how strong or tough we may be, everyone needs to hear that we are loved. We especially need to hear it from our parents. Our hearts long to hear the words "this is my dearly loved son" or "this is my dearly loved daughter." 

If the Son was going to walk confidently and carry the love of the Abba Almighty to humanity, he needed that love from the Father to be established in His heart. Notice in the Scripture that love was expressed through spoken words. The Son needed to hear His Father speaks love to Him.

Outdoor Adventure of A Busy Father

By Ianpassion

The true story of each person on this planet is not the one you see. However, it is the story of each person's heart journey. - Eldredge, John

As the father of two children (Nana and Nemi), I have always felt a calling to instill the value of family; to model Abba Allmighty's love and His overflowing joy at being with Him.

Parenting: What Young Fathers Must Know?

By Ianpassion

The majority of today's problems are the result of fatherless children who have never experienced affection or praise from their fathers. Fathers are extremely important in our children's emotional development.

Many studies have found that children who are estranged from their fathers misbehave the most socially and academically, and are more likely to be depressed.
