A Father's Love

My eighty-six year old dad recently gave up his driver's license so I am now his full-time chauffeur. He had physical therapy yesterday and wanted to go to his bank and pharmacist as well. 

What he did on every stop is something I will hold in my heart forever.  He carried my recently released paperback "Moments with God" with him.  He told me he wanted to show it to everyone because he was so proud.

You might be wondering why I'm so emotional about this ... For decades I was his main source of embarrassment, not pride. (Detailed in "And God Still Loves Me", which is also an added feature in the paperback.)

And yes, it got me thinking again.  Our Father's love is the same.  He might not be pleased with some of our actions, but He loves us nonetheless.  When we                                               are repentant, our sins are forgiven ... We are given another chance to do it                                               right and make Him proud.  

     “The great thing to remember is that though our 
feelings come and go 
God's love for us does not."
- C.S. Lewis

  1. Beautiful, Patti. Having had a loving father in my own life, the comparison is especially sweet.
