Tomorrow is Fathers day. A day to celebrate, remember and honor those men in our lives that have done so much for us. The man that gave us life, the man that protected us and provided for us, the man that loved us and guided us. For most of us, it is a day to celebrate our Dad.
Fathers day isn’t a day of celebration for some though. For some, it is just another day to remember a man that was abusive, neglectful or just plan absent. For some it is a day of bittersweet memories of a man that has left our world and joined our Heavenly Father. For some, it is just another day in a painful world.
So today, I pray for those that this holiday causes pain. I pray that those who weren’t born into a happy family feel Gods loving embrace. I pray those who are mourning find peace. I pray we remember that God is a Father to us all, that one day the pain of this world will be left behind and we all be welcomed into the kingdom of Heaven. Amen
