Spirituality from Daily Word: “Father’s Blessing” (Espirtualidad de la Palabra Diaria: “Bendición para los Padres”)

Fathers’ Blessing

I give thanks for all expressions of fatherly love.

My relationship with my father may have been positive and nurturing or difficult and challenging. He may have been a strong presence during my childhood, or he may have been absent. We may be part of each other’s lives today, we may be estranged, or he may have passed from earthly life. Whatever our circumstances, I bless my father and I see him enfolded in divine love.

As I honor my father, I also honor all the father figures who have helped guide me along my path. Family members, teachers, neighbors, clergy, employers, and friends—I bless them as I recall all the ways each one, in a unique way, has modeled strength, guidance, wisdom, and patience. Their presence remains with me thanks to their gifts of fatherly love.

I have taught you the way of wisdom; I have led you in the paths of uprightness.—Proverbs 4:11

Bendición para los Padres

Doy gracias por todas las expresiones de amor paternal.

Mi relación con mi padre puede haber sido positiva y sustentadora o difícil y retadora. Tal vez, él haya sido una presencia constante durante mi infancia o haya estado ausente. Puede que todavía compartamos esta experiencia de vida o no mantengamos contacto alguno.

Sin importar las circunstancias, bendigo a mi padre y lo veo rodeado de amor divino. Lo honro y también honro a quienes me han guiado a lo largo del camino. Familiares, maestros, vecinos y amigos, los bendigo a todos recordando las maneras cómo me enseñaron a demostrar fortaleza, sabiduría y paciencia.

La presencia de quienes me han brindado su ayuda permanecerá conmigo siempre. Siento gratitud por el regalo del amor paterno.

Yo te muestro el camino de la sabiduría, y te llevo por senderos de rectitud.—Proverbios 4:11
