“A Father’s Blessing”

Several weeks ago we celebrated with our son Daniel his marriage to Brittany and I was able to share the following blessing:

Daniel, you have our blessing to leave our home and to make a new home with Brittany and to take with you the best that we could give you. Brittany, as you join with Daniel, you are welcome in our home as a daughter. May you both love, cherish, and respect each other always. May you find joy, warmth, and acceptance in each other. As you journey together in discovering love, may you each be gentle, patient, and kind with each other. May you be fruitful in the blessings the Lord gives you. And always may you keep Jesus Christ as the very center of your lives so that your home is a home of God’s love. Amen.

Being a father has its moments, and this is one of them.
