VOD 06/21/09: Have A Joyful Father’s Day!
Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. (KJV)
Once a year, we celebrate fathers. Maybe you are one. If I had it to do all over again, I’d love my wife more in front of my children. I’d laugh with my children more. I’d listen more, even to the youngest child. I’d be more honest about my own weaknesses and stop pretending perfection. I would pray differently for my children. I would be more encouraging and bestow more praise. And finally, I would use every ordinary thing that happened in every ordinary day to point them to God. If there’s going to be music in marriage, the dad has to be the leader of the band.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings. Abba, on this day that we honor our earthly fathers, let us not forget to give honor to You, also. Every day is Father’s Day when it comes to You. Allow the Holy Spirit to show the father’s here how to raise their children in righteousness and to set a good example of how Your children should behave.
We lift our prayers up to You, our Lord and our Savior…Amen.
Good morning one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and pleasant Father’s Day.
May God Bless,
