Are you praying blessings over the ones that you love?
Growing up, my father prayed this prayer over blessing over me every night he was home. It showed me my father loved me, he believed that God had control of my live, and he asked God to bless my life consistently. Since before Anna was born, I have prayed these words over her when I put her down at night. Last Thursday night, I asked her what songs she wanted me to sing and she said: “Daddy, sing face shine.”
What did your father do that blessed you?
Dad and I are tearing up. What a blessing. We will definitely “sing face shine” in our hearts as we think of your blessing over her.
