The Love of a Father
Posted by Vogeler on January 27, 2007
Luke is going through a strange phase.
Ever since he’s been sick (about 1.5 weeks), he’s wanted nothing to do with me. Not your normal, “I don’t feel good, I want only Mommy” type of stuff.
It’s breaking my heart. It’s only me. No one else. Just me. He’s fine with everyone else, except for a bit of crankiness because he doesn’t feel well.
If anyone else has ever gone through this, and you have advice, it would be appreciated. Prayers, too.
It struck me as I was driving into work this morning: how must my heavenly Father feel? Doesn’t it break His heart when I don’t say good morning to Him? Doesn’t it make Him sad when I don’t tell Him goodnight? How He must hurt when I spend all of my time with my friends, or my family, or books, or whatever, but don’t spend any with Him?
My prayer is that people read this, and that my pain helps them realize the pain they cause their Father in heaven. My prayer is that I always remember this, so I don’t hurt my Father like this again.
