“I BLESS my father and the men who have shown me fatherly kindness.” Daily Word Magazine

It’s Father’s Day and I miss my dad immensely.  Today, I am in my feelings and instead of posting my words for this week’s blog, I am going to defer to Unity’s Daily Word’s meditation to speak for me.  When I read it, it BLESSED my spirit and hopefully it will BLESS yours too. 


I BLESS my father and the men who have shown me fatherly kindness.

Today I BLESS and give heartfelt thanks to my father and the men who were fatherly figures to me.  Their protecting presence, wise guidance, and caring instruction have helped, make me the person I am today.

I BLESS my father and those who shared a father’s love and care with prayers of appreciation for my memories throughout all the seasons of my life.  Through good times and bad, I see GOD expressing through my father and the men who have shown me fatherly love.  I BLESS them with prayers and gratitude, affirming they know the love and care of GOD as they have shown it so generously and faithfully to me.

And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.-Ephesians 6:4

Fathers are indeed a BLESSING.  Regardless of if your father is still here, or has gone on to glory, today we honor them for the invaluable contributions that they’ve made in our lives.  Today and every day, I will honor my dad’s memory by adhering to the wisdom he shared with me-“take the LORD with you everywhere you go, cause you will need HIM”.  Happy Father’s Day!!
