A Prayer for Fathers
Father's Day began with a prayer, on the way to Mass, for protection, health and encouragement of Father's - biological and spiritual....
The boys were on the altar with this dear Priest for a wonderful, Sunday Mass. Father, in his homily, made a connection I had not yet heard before. Adam's bride, Eve, came from his side. Christ, the 2nd Adam, from His Sacred Heart peirced had His bride come forth from his side. Blood and water, the Precious Blood of our Church's Eucharist and the water of Baptism...
God bless this friend and Father.
Then, we went to my parent's house to be with my Father. The children went swimming while my Mother, Father, husband and I enjoyed a breezy conversation, bird watching, flower graden appreciation and snacking patio side.
While the sumptious feast was being prepared, the kids jumped on the trampoline.
My second son recieved a grilling lesson from his Dad. God has been so good to me and my children to give them a Father who truly puts his faith first...and....he's a alot of fun!
