A week or so ago, a friend mentioned that her husband gives their entire family a Priesthood blessing every month on Fast Sunday. It made me stop and think. Am I taking advantage of the blessing of having the Priesthood in our home?
I received my Patriarchal Blessing when I was sixteen years old, and try to review it regularly. I actually have most of it memorized. It was a comfort to me at that time, and still is today. But am I taking advantage of the blessings that are available to me from my own loving DH?
Several days ago I mentioned this to my DH, and asked if he would be willing to give me a priesthood blessing yesterday on our fast day. Of course he agreed. There are no particularly evident needs in my life right now, but the priesthood blessing was truly a blessing and a comfort to me. It made me cry. The blessing reminded me that my Heavenly Father loves me, is mindful of me, and is happy with my efforts. I need to embrace the good in my life and let go of the bad. I'm grateful to have the blessing of the priesthood in my home, and a worthy DH who is willing to bless me and my family.
Are you taking advantage of and enjoying the blessings of the Priesthood in your life?
