Blessings for all you fathers out there! I hope you have had a very relaxing day. Here is my own father enjoying part of his day today. Besides being a master chef (even on Father’s Day he’ll be grilling up some awesome food for us!), my dad is also a master blogger/tweeter and the one who encouraged me to start blogging (and now tweeting) in the first place. So if you see anything you like on here, you really have him to thank for it. As part of my parents’ business he owns and operates AgWired, among others, has a personal blog Path to Holiness (which I sometimes contribute to) and you can follow him on twitter @AgriBlogger.
Thank you, Dad, for all you have given me and to all fathers for the hard work you do to support, protect and be an example to your children and grandchildren. Thank you, above all, for accepting your role as father – a difficult task in our society which belittles the vocation and even deems it unnecessary or undesirable through IVF, abortion, contraception and radical feminism.
And, of course, none of us would be here without God our loving Father who created us to be his children and share in the inheritance of his Kingdom in Heaven. Therefore with confidence we cry, “Abba, Father!” and pray:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. They Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven! Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our tresspasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil – AMEN!

Thank you, friend Jesus,
for my father who loves me,
for my grandfather who cares for me,
and for God, your father and mine,
who made me and is always with me.
How lucky I am!
After an awesome dinner of steak, salad and roasted potatoes (thanks, dad!) my sisters and I got together for a pic with the man of the day:
