Father's Day 2014
Because my hubbie and I were not able to bear our children to term due to some medical issues within my body we are counted among the many who were not able to bear children and are childless in the normal sense of the word.
In our world we are surrounded by four legged kiddos that fill our lives with joy.
A world which many cannot understand but that is okay;
because we do not understand the world of two legged kids.
But as a wise woman once said, "Can't we still be friends?"
Father's Day and Mother's day are not "normal" for us
because the focus usually is on those who were blessed with children.
We on the other hand are blessed in so many other ways.
Because both our Father's are in heaven,
I decided to approach Father's day in another sense.
All my friends are traditional mothers and fathers and now are
I have a new calling in our branch in which my Branch President
invited me to share uplifting thoughts and insights to hopefully
edify and lift those around me.
As I was trying to figure out another message to share with my Visiting teachess the thought came that I needed to share a "Father's Day" message with their husbands.
So I went to the Church's website and typed in the search bar,
"Father's Day" and here is the talk that jumped out at me.
Sometimes we that aren't able to bear children forget that we have a Heavenly Father,along with an earthly Father and other Father's who surround us or who in our history has allowed us the freedoms and rights we so enjoy.
I had never thought about my Heavenly Father celebrating "Father's Day." But thanks to this talk from this day forward each and every Father's Day for me will be dedicated to the memory of my earthly Poppers and I will honor and pay homage to both my Poppers and my Eternal Father each and every day of the year as I strive to become more like Him.
So Happy Father's Day to each and every wise Father past and present that has influenced and continue to influence my life.
May we always remember the sacrifices made by many a Father that some may not have even thought to pay tribute to on this wonderful day.
"Every Day a Father’s Day
Father’s Day is usually celebrated one day every June, but there can be other father’s days too.
