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

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

Waiting for Perfect (Guest Post on Inkspirations Online)

Rachael_M_Colby_Inkspirations_Online_Waiting_for_Perfect

I was waiting for perfect, but it never showed up. So I decided I’d better start the journey without it. I thought I needed to be the perfect Christian, wife, mom, have the perfect family, and coin the perfect phrases. Then I’d have something to say. Then God could use my writing. I mean, who am I?
