My Dad's a Hero Again

Dad is facing several dilemmas involving a friend, and when it was suggested that he make a promise to this friend but then break it or change his plans at the last minute, Dad said, "No, my word means something."

It's amazing, wonderful, cool...wow...to discover what a man of integrity my father is. Oh, that I had gotten to know him better when I was young. But my heart was hurting and so distrustful then. Now I realize that he was trying to teach me so much but I wanted so badly what I thought he wasn't giving, that I refused to submit to him and be teachable.

May you or the man or men you know be ever becoming more and more men of honor!

Don't let the analogy with your Heavenly Father be lost on you and suffer even more regret.

My Dad died when I was 12 and my sister was 16. We've both had to come a long, hard way to get back to zero with our spiritual Daddy.
