I was talking with God about tomorrow since it is Father’s day. I know I am getting a little ahead of myself, as one of my goals is to work on living in the present moment. God understands and we had a good conversation.
I am so abundantly blessed to have two daughters! They are smart, loving, beautiful, funny…I could fill a whole blog about them.
When my girls ask me about gifts…like for tomorrow, birthday or Christmas, my answer is always the same: more time with you (ok, and maybe a gift card or two from the big box bookstore!).
They are living their own lives and both doing great! Luckily, they are in the same town so I get to see them often.
What about our Spiritual Father’s Day?
I believe it ties in to my last post and Barbara’s comment. She used the word “priority” in her comment in regards to setting aside time to pray and be with God. We both agreed we can also talk with God anytime during the day or night. However, setting aside a designated time is important. It is also, in my opinion, respectful.
My prayer is for us to think about our spiritual Father’s day and the time we spend with our heavenly Father. Let us ask for guidance each day. Where does He want us to go? Whom does He want us to meet? What does He want us to do? How does He want us to be a better parent?
As you know, I usually end my blog post with a quote from the Bible or a Saint. To all the Dad’s out there who are reading this: Happy Dad’s day! Take it from me, the time with your children goes by amazingly fast. So fast, I wonder how did I get to be this old and how did they get to be their age, in what seems like a very short period of time. With that thought in mind:
“You can get old pretty young if you don’t take care of yourself.”
