When I hear the name "father"
I feel safe, protected, loved...
In other words,
my heart, mind and spirit are unafraid...
This sense of security and fortitude elevates me to a place where hope is always an option.
Whatever my concerns for the moment may be,
God, the Father, is always taking care of me.
In my journey on this earth, I've also been blessed to have a human father who lived out these virtues and inculcated the good, in me. A father who cherished his wife and children, and sacrificed himself in every way in order to guide his family to do good and follow our vocation.
My father was strong and kind and very disciplined.
He left my family and I a tremendous legacy in our walk toward our destiny in the one family in Christ. Together with my mother, my parents never stopped laboring for the good of the family.
Today, I want to remember my father in a special way - all-day-long - because on this day 4 years ago, he died. I miss him terribly, still...Yet I am also consoled and strengthened in my faith walk when I pray, pray, pray everyday...especially during the celebration of Mass...because this is when we are blessed to be able to unite in spirit with the rest of the Body of Christ...as we pray with each other.
I love you,dad!!! Please remember me...when you come into God's kingdom...
