Father's Pride

Father's Pride

A star has come on a ride
Bringing joys of unsettling tide
Knocking at my door smiled a cute child
Daughter is nature's choice and father's pride

Hugs of dirt from muddy puddle plays
Fun filled ways under the pricking sun rays
Dancing steps with drops of water sprays
Her mind blowing milestones witnessed by passing days

Innocent wrongs of her always felt right
Priceless pleasure present when she hugs me tight
A universe of happiness is close to my sight
Her wonder sounds of tender words made stressful moments light

Pearly tears of innocent fears
Giggles and cries that my home hears
Negotiations following the temper tantrum years
Locked in my memory closet before it disappears

In the family tree she is the love bud
Nature's blessings on me are abundantly good
Being with her I understood
The true art of fatherhood.

    God The Father's Father's day message to children in a message to Maureen dated June 20, 2021 Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says: “Children, your salvation lies in every present moment and the choices you make therein. I desire that you love Me as a Loving Father. Do not fear Me. Fear My Justice which I unwilling impart when you disregard My Commandments. I am the Loving Father some of you never had in the world. I give to you the path of salvation which is the way to Eternal Joy. Love Me enough to follow the path I lay before you. Give to Me your sins with a repentant heart. I stand ready to forgive.” “Understand that war is the consequence of sin. Man’s indifference to My Commandments can result in universal punishment. Do not fear Me. Do fear My inevitable Justice which follows sin always.” “Appeal to My Love by respecting one another through obedience to My Commandments. I watch and witness your choices as any father watches his children.” Read Philippians 2:12-13+ Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for God is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
