For many years (while away studying), my mother would say this to me at the end of our conversations…
The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.
Numbers 6:24-26 NKJV
I was always comforted by these words of blessings. I hope my siblings and I will be able to continue this tradition. From God, Himself, and Biblical characters (such as Abraham, Issac, and Jacob) we can see there is power in the blessing from a parent.
