Yesterday I wrote about Deacons. The story is not complete, though. Behind every Deacon are a mother and a father, training and teaching their sons in preparation for accepting the job of passing the Sacrament.
Mothers wash their sons' clothes and make sure they are presentable for Sunday. Fathers lead by example in honoring their own Priesthood.
Deacons don't just happen. They are made, by loving and righteous parents who are intent on imparting to their sons (and daughters) a love for the Lord.
So, for today, I am grateful for righteous parents everywhere.
