Happy Father’s Day

June 21st, 2015 by

Father’s Day Blessings from the Western North Carolina Conference Lay Organization to YOU!

Lord, please bless our fathers, these men who mean so much to us, who are greatly responsible
for who we are and who we are becoming. Bless them for having the courage to do what’s necessary to keep us out of trouble, for making us do the right thing, for helping us build our character,
even when it makes us angry; and bless them for pushing us to do our best, even when they just want to love us.  Bless our fathers for being our protectors, for leading us through stormy times to safety,
for making us believe that everything will be all right and for making it so.
Bless our fathers for quietly making a living to provide for those they love most, for giving us food, clothing, shelter and other necessary and not so necessary material things, for unselfishly investing time and money in us that they could have spent on themselves.
Bless our fathers, Lord, for saving some energy for fun, for leading us on adventures
to explore the outer reaches of ourselves, for making us laugh, for being our playmates and our friends.
Bless them for being our secure foundation, our rock, for holding on tight to us…until it’s time to let us go.
Lord, bless these men we look up to, our role models, our heroes, our fathers.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen. By Joanna Fuchs

We look forward to your attendance at our next Lay Conference meeting on August 8th at 10 am at Turners Chapel, 7615 Florence School Drive, High Point, NC.

Happy Father’s Day and thank you for your willingness to serve!

From the Desk of...
