I want to share with you a story about my childhood and my father.
During the war in Lebanon my father was kidnapped and killed on the age of 37 years old. I was 3 years old at that time and after two years my mother sent me to school and i was happy to be in the school but, the most who makes me at that time angry was that all my friends talk about their fathers and how they care about them and bring them gifts and stuffs. When i return back to home i approach my mother and asked her “Where is my father and why he don’t bring for me gifts???!!!”
My mother always answered me that he is in heaven with Jesus. Two years later the nuns start to teach us the Lord Prayer and here i was shocked by the prayer “Our Father who art in Heaven…” I kept praying till 12 years old thinking that i was praying for my earthly father who is with Jesus in Heaven!!!! Now i recognize that God our Father gives us the earthly fathers to start knowing him little by little and how much He cares about us and Loves us so much to gives us a models like our earthly fathers….
In conclusion i wish first Our Father Who Art in Heaven a best wish that i will be always faithful to Him and to take care of my earthly father who is with Him right now. Happy Father’s Day to all fathers, Protect them with His care and may Almighty Father give eternal rest for the fathers who left us. Amen
