Father’s Day

Today is Father’s Day. It is a day to give thanks to our heavenly Father, and for our earthly fathers and father figures. If our earthly fathers are still alive, we should spend some quality time with them today and give thanks to God for them. If our fathers are deceased, we should remember them in our prayers and recall some of the happier times we have spent with them. We should also be grateful for the father figures in our lives, those people who have supported us, and have strived to bring happiness into our lives, and perhaps have raised our spirits when we were down. If we are currently fathers of families, we should strive to best fulfill this important role. Those who are in the positions of father figures should avail themselves of the opportunities to bring joy and values into the lives of those entrusted to them. May we all use this Father’s Day well.
