A great blessing in our life. Papa, we love you!
Today is all of us celebrating Father’s day. The day when we specially remember of our Fathers and make them special. But not only today that we have to remember and treat our fathers SPECIAL, but EVERYDAY!
This is my prayer for my father and Dave, as a father. They are so special in my life and Abigail’s. This prayer also for all the fathers in the world.

I am so grateful to be a mom. It’s my call and I wanna live it out. Abigail is my 2-year old girl and she is an active and curios girl. Never stop exploring and learning something. Sometimes I cannot keep up with her. Sometimes I forget to be thankful to have precious times and moments with her. How I am so thankful to God for giving me this privilege calling. I just wanna say, ENJOY EVERY MOMENT you have with your children, because you never know they already move out.
These are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father said as he told his sons good-bye. He blessed each one with an appropriate message.
All of chapter 49 of Genesis records the individual blessings Jacob gave his sons. Each one is an example of a father’s careful observations of his son’s character and potential. Blessings were serious business in Old Testament families. We could make a huge impact on our children if we made it a point to institute parental blessings as part of our family life. Author Gary Smalley has written extensively on this particular subject, and his books have many practical suggestions.
One of the basic changes we can make in our family thinking is to expand the way we treat occasions like birthdays, graduations, holidays, weddings, and other special events. How can we add to each of these occasions intentional moments of blessing? Can we find a way to include an “appropriate message” in each one? Where can we start?
