[This was originally posted on my Facebook Wall in April 2010. Today I am reposting it as a tribute to both of my Fathers, earthly and Heavenly.]
Happiness is… having an earthly father who is sensitive to the leading of our Heavenly Father!!
This afternoon (April 2010) I was diagnosed as having “Full Blown Diabetes,” otherwise known as “Type 2 Diabetes.” When I arrived home I sat down, lifted my hands in praise and worship to my Heavenly Father, and cried with tears.
Within 5 seconds (that’s FIVE SECONDS!) my phone rang.
And who was calling me? It was my earthly father calling me [from Texas] in response to his feeling led by our Heavenly Father to… call me and check in on me!
In the midst of one of life’s storms my Heavenly Father sent His best representative on earth to comfort me, to encourage me, and to strengthen me in His place: My earthly father!
Thanks father, and Father! Thanks dad, and Dad! Thanks abba, and Abba!
Surely, happiness is… having an earthly father who is sensitive to the leading of, and the representation of, our Heavenly Father!!
