(For fathers, children, and not just for Father’s Day) 

The Perfect Father

Relentless and reckless in His love for us

He is an ever present help in all He calls us to

He is a father to the fatherless

He offers hope and healing to the hurting heart, strength to the weak

forgiveness from failure and a new beginning at the end of our road

“Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.” ‭‭Psalms ‭103:13-14‬ ‭NASB‬‬

          In Step With My Father

(For fathers, children, and not just for Father’s Day) 

I remember Daddy holding my hand as we entered the gates to the botanical gardens, Wrigley’s gum, Elephant Ear pastries, Matchbox cars, him carrying me when I was hurt, and scraping every speck of black pepper off my food. And bumper cars. I hated them, but I never told him because I liked to hear him laugh—and we were together.

Daddy was pale and shaky after riding the corkscrew roller coaster. We made kites with bamboo and tissue paper. They always crashed, but that was okay. He drove way too fast on the windy island mountain roads in his little ultramarine Triumph Spitfire… Cont. Here: http://sohiochristianvoice.com/in-step-with-my-father
