Father’s Day

Father’s day is tomorrow, and it made me think of this song I started writing awhile back. Here’s a little snippet of it. ❤

I may not have an earthly father anymore
He may not be here, he may have closed the door
But I trust that my one true father is God
And with Him his love cannot be flawed

You tell me you are my one true father
You tell me I am your princess, your daughter
You tell me how much you love me.
You tell me you died and rose to set me free.

I love you guys. Happy Father’s day to all of the dads who are man enough to actually be good dads and be there for their children. ❤

Help or Not?

So earlier this evening I was sitting in my car waiting for the rain to die down a little before getting out to use the atm at the bank. It was pouring rain and flooding the streets. I noticed an old lady asking the people in the car beside me for spare change. I’m not sure if they gave her anything or not but I got a little nervous, it being Jacksonville and not a very good part of town, hoping she wasn’t going to come to my car. After a few minutes I noticed her walking up. She had an old brown blanket with holes in it draped on her shoulders. She had a walker with some bags of stuff on it, she had like some sort of brace on her foot and she was wearing really old flip-flops. She approached my car window. I didn’t roll my window down or anything because you never know what to expect, and I was alone. She said, “I’m no harm to you…I’m no harm to anyone….I just wanted to ask if you had any spare change for me?” I shook my head and said, “No, I’m sorry.” (I’m actually not doing so well right now myself and I didn’t have any change on me) She hobbled away to the next car in the parking lot and they gave her a few bills. I felt sorry for her, but I have no idea what her story is. I prayed for her. But I thought, you can never be too careful with things like this. A stranger approaching your car, not the greatest area of town, etc. Also, who knows what she really wants the money for, drugs, alcohol, or something? Then on the other hand I thought, what if she really is homeless and extremely needy? And she can’t catch a break at all? What if her life has totally crumbled around her and this poor old lady is forced to live on the streets?

I just never know what to do when people like this ask me for money. I think the best thing I can do for them is pray for them, whatever their situation may be. In a better scenario, somewhere else maybe I would give. But like I said, you just never know.

I don’t know, people may think it’s weird… but I just wanted to express how I felt about this. I felt really bad for her. I know she is just one of the MANY homeless/needy people but she is a person too. And I wish I knew her story.

My Dad

I found a picture of my dad today. It was a picture I took a couple years ago of him and my youngest baby sister, out in our backyard in Minnesota. Floods of memories came back and I just remember feeling like he really loved us. I felt such joy taking that picture. But now when I look at the photograph, I just see right through the smiles on their faces, I see the pain and fear piercing through my  little sister. And I see what a troubled and mentally unstable person my dad is. As I looked at the picture tears filled my eyes. I never thought it would turn out like this. I never thought I’d wake up one day and finally realize that my own dad didn’t love me, and that I had been living in his lie for my entire life. Sometimes I just wish so much that I had a real dad who really loved me and cared for me. But then it comes quickly to my mind that I do. I have a father who will never ever give up on me, who gave everything to have me, who loves me unconditionally forever, and who cares about me more than I could imagine. What more do I need? I am very thankful I have God as my true father. Some people have no hope at all! Some people have lost their father, and even their mother, and they feel desperately alone. I have so much to be thankful for, even though I’ve gone through such tough times in my life. I will always have hope. My story about my dad is far too long to write here. I would have to write a book, which I am working on. So until then,

Love you guys!
