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.
