A FATHER'S LOVE
Years ago when I first started with spiritual direction, my feminine
Today's psalm has a line:
I am not a "Father" and never will be. I can only imagine what our Almighty Father might be feeling when his son/daughter returns...or becomes aware of being loved.
Our family was blessed with a loving, kind and generous father though I know some haven't been as fortunate. I remember my father flying from Philadelphia to Colorado to help one of my sisters when she was having a rough time. On the way home, he stopped in Chicago to spend some time with me. He also took my brother to auto races when Frank was young because he liked them. To Pops, they were too noisy but his love cut through the noise.
We can all think of fathers we have known, though perhaps not our own, who were/are able to reach out to family members and others who are in one of life's messes. It is their personal presence and caring that matters.
The God of Micah who
God the Lover is a great and challenging and gorgeous mystery to
us. God does love us always and in all ways.
