Until God ordains otherwise, a man ought to bear patiently whatever he cannot correct in himself and in others. Imitation of Christ by John Kempis

A Fathers Love

June 7th 2018

Prophesy for Fathers

I am here to help.  I will secure all your plans.  Help me by repenting quickly and praying fervently.  Give me what is mine, tithe It is my desire to Bless you abundantly.  Seek me in the word and you will be wise.  Come to a quiet place alone with me.  If you don’t serve me, who will take your place?  Fear not for I am always with you.

Claude Council is my husband of 54 years and father of our 4 Children and 5 grandchildren.

THE CHILDRENS FATHER

IS A GENEROUS AND KIND MAN

THERE ARE NO BOUNDS TO HIS MERCY

OR THE LENGTHS HE SERVES US

HE PROTECTS WITH GRACE

WHEN HE LOST THE RACE

BY BEING TOO SLOW

AND BROKE HIS TOE

JESUS MADE IT GROW

IT WAS HARD FOR HIM TO RECEIVE

SOONER OR LATER HE DID BELIEVE

A HUMBLE GODLY MAN

SUFFERS SILENTLY

CONTINUES TO GIVE

ENJOYS HIS FAMILIES OUTINGS

CARRIES HIS CROSSES

NEVER DISCUSSES LOSSES

EVEN WHEN HE WAS SICK WITH PROSTRATE CANCER

HE KNEW JESUS WAS THE ANSWER

HE IS FAR ABOVE THE REST

ALL IN ALL HE IS BEST!!!!! By June Council

Lynn Bradley

Our Children love and respect their father Claude lee Council jr. His daughter Lynn Bradley loves and understands him. His sons Claude lee Council 111, James Council, Matthew Council and our son-in-law Allen Bradley, respect and honor his opinions. I am very blessed that he gave all of them, all of himself , guidance, correction, protection, financial support and all his love. We all love his sense of humor and humble manner. One time when the children were young a man came violently to our front door and tried to open and break in the door.  It was over a dispute between our children.  I never saw Claude so close to violence.  He controlled his temper and did not open the door.  That is when I knew that he would die for us all at any second.  Thank God He is a prudent man.  Claude is a Mans Man and enjoys football, baseball and loves going to games with the family.  In his younger years he watched sports on t.v. and it became the family bonding time.  When you have many children you sacrifice many things to provide for your family.  Claude never once complained about giving anything to his children.    He was also with those in need, and taking in others down on their luck.  Claude would go along with my Christian Callings without complaining.  We sold everything we owned and gave lots to the poor and went across the country in camper with 4 children for a year.  Claude had a life trauma when all the children were gone because he had to work so much.   Our grandchildren filled that hole in Claude’s life.  Our grandchildren , Angela, Allen, Bria, Christopher, Caroline have been a great joy to him.  He use to put candy in his back pocket for them to find when he came home from work, when they were little.  When they got older he took them on many trips and enjoyed playing cards and then going to a really late movie with them.  He would finish their stay over with a trip to waffle house or Denny’s which was so much fun for us all.   Everyday should be Father’s Day!!!

PAPA

My husbands father Claude lee Council Sr. was an amazing Christian father, husband and grandfather . Our children loved him. He gave amazing training in writing from his generation of good grammar and perfect penmanship. Their vacations with him was a highlight of their summer. I loved our talks on the Bible and spiritual topics. He was a great Joy in all of our lives. We miss him.

My Husband calls himself my Joseph and I do too. Gods power is in a silent man like Joseph.

JESUS FATHER “JOSEPH”

There are no words from Joseph, but he did plenty of actions.  Joseph was a man of Christian action.  Joseph protected the Holy Family and guarded them with the help of God’s guidance.  His righteousness guided him in justice and saved Mary and her reputation.  He also sustains us in our afflictions today.  Just like any father who goes unnoticed for his good model of hard work.  Joseph protected Jesus and trained him in a trade in Jesus younger years.  Joseph caring for Jesus with compassion as a foster father, shows his generosity.  Even though they were poor Joseph was a good provider.  The wisdom of Joseph listening to God allowed him to rescue Jesus from Herod’s murder. Everything Joseph did was to prepare and protect and provide for his family.   I m sure his prayers save us from many sins.

JOSEPH’S MANY TITLES;

Model of Righteousness

Solace of the afflicted

Protector of Children

Hope of the Sick

Consolation of the Poor

Rescuer of Sinners

Model of Christian Workmen

Patron of Priests and Seminarians

Model of Single Men and Married Men

Patron of a Happy Death

Guardian of Virgins

Safeguard of Families

MY FATHER

I never knew your pain

You were always there

To protect and serve

You suffered silently

With perseverance and grace

You cared and did your best

Your cross was huge

Yet you carried it to the end

And at the end you told me

God protected you the whole way

My father was a quiet man.  He loved his pipe and fast cars.  I loved smelling the Cherry tobacco that he smoked in his pipe.   When I was little he would take me on his lap and say silly stuff to me.  He really enjoyed me.   My mother said that I would stand next to him in the car and say careful daddy and he would slow down.  He had a hard life growing up.  His mother was single mom and he was illegitimate.  In that generation it was considered terrible and not tolerated by the town.  They would spit on him and mistreat him.  When he graduated from High School and began to work a man took him under his wing and encouraged him to take a government test.  He passed the test and he and my mother moved to Washington D.C.  He became very successful in the government.  That man really changed his life forever for the better.  My father was a very hard worker and very loyal.  He had a hard life.  When I was 13 our lives changed forever.   My grandmother died, who lived with us, and my mother had a mental breakdown from taking care of her day and night.  It was a terrible time for the mentally ill as they usually did not come out of the institutions.  They were misunderstood and persecuted even more then they are in this generation.  My dad cared for her until she died.  He took much abuse from her and was very patient and loving.  I am very proud of my father was a good son and father and husband.   It is good to be grateful for our parents.  Always remember different generations have different rules.  We should love them because they do the best for us as they can.  My father passed away and I now know that lifetimes are fleeting and the opportunities are numbered.  So let go of the hardened heart and unforgiveness and fear and love.  Say I love you today!

GOD OUR FATHER

Venerable Fulton Sheen,

Once you have surrendered yourself, you make yourself receptive.  In receiving from God, you are perfected and completed.

No one will love us more than God our Father.  Yet I need to appreciate you lord and I overlook the wonderful things you do for me.  The miracles that I take for granted.    You tell me how much you love me and I forget and fear.

Thank you Father for;

Loving us unconditionally

For your Merciful Love

For your forgiveness

Especially giving us Jesus

Your unselfish generosity

Your Healings

The Eucharist
