We are not able to publish the notes from Dr. Mariane Fisher’s reflection from yesterday (June 13th). If they become available, I will email them to you.
  REJOICE ALWAYS, PRAY WITHOUT CEASING, GIVE THANKS IN ALL
 CIRCUMSTANCES,
 FOR THAT IS THE WILL OF GOD FOR YOU!
 Thoughts for Father’s Day (June 20th):
  Hi! Marylee, here. Was thinking today about how, over many years, the resentments
 I felt against my own father have gradually (and not yet completely) faded in favor of a
 growing realization that while he may have been a flawed human being, he tried his very
 best to be a powerful influence in the Name of God. One of his greater successes, in my
 mind, was his love of anointing and praying for the sick and infirm—which often led to some
 wonderfully amazing answers to prayer. Today, in his memory and with thanksgiving, I
 would pray for all those who struggle with difficult relationships with fathers (and fathers with
 their children, as well). May God grant His healing to broken and resentful hearts, and help
 us to remember every good thing we have been granted. Amen.
