Abba Day Blessings.- Belec

How blessed I am to have my 84 year old father still here, living independently.

How blessed I am to have my husband, the father of my own two beautiful children, still by my side after 32 years.

How blessed I am to see my son step into the role of fatherhood and is doing it masterfully!

How blessed I am that my son-in-law regards his responsibility as a father with passion.


Father's Day is coming up. It's a day most of us set aside to remember and honour fathers and other special men who have been a father figure in our lives - stepfathers, uncles, grandfathers, "Big Brothers," and others. I'm not particularly fond of the commercialism that goes along with these special days, although I am putting out for a round of golf for the man who has stuck by me through thick and thin. I think the most important thing I can do to make a difference is to love without abandon or condition. My prayer is that I can do that with all the special men in my life.
It might be a little premature talking about Father's Day but I always like to think ahead these days. One never knows what dastardly surprise lurks behind the bushes. So I am rejoicing today. I am thankful today. And I want to publicly declare my love today for the men who have made a difference in my life.
Mostly, I want to publicly declare my love for Abba, my heavenly Father, who has taught me not to fear those dastardly surprises that lurk and appear suddenly, intent on consuming souls.

"For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father."

Your spirit of gratitude permeates this tribute, Glynis, and gently reflects the huge challenges you've faced in recent years.
Thank you for calling us to love without reserve and condition, in view of the our inability to see beyond today. Thanks for focusing on Abba Father.
