A Prayer of Blessing for Father’s Day

May you be celebrated for you,

for your life of love and dedication.

May you be celebrated for love

poured out in pitches thrown and boo-boos kissed.

May you be celebrated for strength

displayed by controlled power, harnessed force.

May you be celebrated for tenderness

demonstrated in cradling sleepless babies and wiping feverish foreheads.

May you be celebrated for longevity and generativity

surrounded by those you have walked life with.

May you be blessed with examples of masculinity

worth following.

May you be celebrated as a follower

of Abba.

For the men in my life who I celebrate this weekend…
