Daddy Love

These sweet children are so lucky to have the daddy that they have. He loves them with everything he has. He sacrifices many personal wants to be sure they have what they need physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. This morning he gave them all father's blessings. The spirit was present. The blessings were beautiful.

Thomas has been anxious about going to first grade. He doesn't want to be there all day. School starts tomorrow. For the past three days or so he has been acting out uncharacteristically. It wasn't until this morning that I realized it was because of his fears about going to school. He was very happy when I explained that he could have a blessing and told him how blessings have helped me. After he was finished he looked visibly more relaxed and calm. He told me that the blessing made him feel peaceful inside. I am so thankful that Jackson is worthy and willing to give this service to our family.

These children's lives will be easier because of their dad...maybe not easier...just more peaceful and joyful.
