Father's Day 6/17/06

Today is Father's Day in the United States, in the U. K. and in many other parts of the world. It's a great day to remember our Dad's and say thanks. Elizabeth hosted a gathering at their place in Nibley yesterday. It was great fun with family from all sides there together. There was good food, good fun and lots of visiting and playing games. Joseph gave his dad the new music CD "Love (The Beatles album)" He'll be in retro heaven. Joseph likes the Beatles too. They both can't wait to hear it.

'Elder Richard L. Evans (1906–71) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles gave the proper dimension for all fathers in… faith when he said: “First of all, fathers are giving a name and a heritage to their children—clean and honorable. Fathers are for long, hard work, mostly their own kind of work; … for trying to give their children things [their] fathers never had. Fathers are for talking with, for encouraging, for putting arms around; for understanding mistakes, but not condoning them; for disciplining when needed, then loving all the more; for being strong and forceful, and for being tender and gentle.” ' Vital Quotations, 120. (Quoted by James E. Faust, “The Father Who Cares,” Ensign, Sep 2006, 2–6)

Lord bless us to honor our Fathers and be Fathers worthy of honor.
