A VINTAGE BLESSING FOR JOSH ET AL...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

Tomorrow, my son Joshua turns 21...One of those ‘SPECIAL’ birthdays...AND SO...

 

Thinking of ways to commemorate this event...

 

My wife and I considered many possibilities from simply presenting him with a modest monetary gift to having a full blown ‘FAMILY REGALIA’...

 

JOSH, however, is not a SPLASHY kind of guy...a mechanic in training...who is not fond of public displays and shy by nature...AND SO...

 

My wife will graciously provide the customary ‘BIRTHDAY CAKE’ of HIS choice combined with a ‘FAMILY DINNER’ also of HIS liking...

 

Since Josh never reads my blog, at least I don’t think he does, I can share with all who read this our plan to surprisingly whisk him off around noon time, just the three of us, for a delicious lunch and a couple of draughts...!!!

 

This should keep us all sufficiently energized and sober enough to fulfill the rest of our BIRTHDAY OBLIGATIONS as we gather as a family later SATURDAY EVENING for the traditional singing of 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' etc...!!!

 

In the meantime, I would like to SHARE WITH ALL WHO READ THIS, AND FOR ESPECIALLY JOSH HIMSELF, THIS ANCIENT HEBREW BLESSING:

 

  MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU.

 

  MAY THE LORD SMILE ON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU.

 

  MAY THE LORD SHOW YOU HIS FAVOR AND GIVE YOU HIS PEACE.

 

AND TO ADD A TRADITIONAL CATHOLIC AND PERSONAL TOUCH:

 

AND I BLESS YOU IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT...AMEN...!!!

 

HAVE A GREAT AND BLESSED WEEKEND...!!!

Fran,  We pay as parents that the Lord take good care of our kids. We train them up in the way that they should go so that they would not depart from it.

Mike,

And sometimes our Faith is weak and we judge by sight...!!! Give thanks to The Lord for He is good; His mercy endures forever...!!!

Thanks,   Fran
