Sunday Scripture: Father's Day

“Fatherhood is leadership, the most important kind of leadership. It has always been so; it always will be so. Father, with the assistance and counsel and encouragement of your eternal companion, you preside in the home. It is not a matter of whether you are most worthy or best qualified, but it is a matter of [divine] appointment.”

(Taken from a talk by Elder L. Tom Perry "Fatherhood, an Eternal Calling" in the Liahona May 2004)

Today is Sunday and Father's day and I have been dearly blessed in my life in having an amazing Father and an amazing Father to my children. I am not quite sure how I was seen as fit to have both in a single lifetime but I am eternally grateful!! I hope that today you celebrated, appreciated, called, hugged, any man in your life that has been a "father" to you or your children. It is a role that can be walked away from, turned down, neglected, or abused, and has been by many, so for today I pray that we all acknowledged those that have embraced, cherished, reveled, and exemplified this calling. Here is the two most important Fathers in my life, Love you and could never replace you!

All my Love

Happy Sunday
