Happy Father's Day

It's Father's Day in Spain today, March 19, el Día del Padre. Technically, its Saint Joseph's Feast Day, husband of the Virgin Mary, and foster-father and guardian of Jesus. So, by extension, this is the day to honor all fathers.

However, Joseph isn't mentioned in the Bible very much besides in the birth story. The last time is when Jesus is 12 years old and, without telling his parents, stays behind in Jerusalem at the temple to listen to the rabbis and ask them questions (Luke 2:41-52). Some theologians suggest that Joseph died before Jesus grew up and began preaching.

If you're a father, don't do that -- don't die before you're old. Your kids will miss you. I miss my Dad.

Hi every one, This is sam,I created hub to help Danielle Wang in making 10,000 signatures by fathers day.I request you all to go through the story and help Danielle by signing the petition at http://freemydad.org.
I hope all kindhearted people of the world will help us to free
Danielle father from the Chinese prison controlled by the Communist regime, so that he can freely believe what he wants to believe and Dan can see her dear father again.Your signatures and voices are rays of light piercing the darkness in
China that runs so rampantly beneath the surface. Every petition entry is a step closer to Danielle dad's release and the end of the persecution of Falun Gong.

In the US, today’s Father’s Day. I feel bad for my boyfriend, Sean, as he can’t see both of his dad’s today. I ❤ how my dad was given the very best present this year—that I’m with someone who he approves of without trying to imply that I should be with someone with the same disability that I have—or closer to my age.
The last time my dad dropped in for a visit, he and my mom had the puppy with them. My dad and Sean (before the puppy) were talking about cars on one of the last times Mom had an opportunity to take us to do our grocery shopping. I enjoyed watching the guys looking at the cars in the Wal-Mart parking lot and talking about the make and model.
