I will never forget his visit and stay with us. For the first time, I have spoken to him in all honesty how I and my brothers really feel about him. There was no drama, just plain after dinner conversation.
What surprises me most was not his reactions and defenses but how i allowed him to see my vulnerability and sensitivity on our family issues without being furious.
I was amazed how patient gracious I was in hearing him finish his side of the story.
That would have never happen before.
Unbelievably, by God's grace, I was calm and understanding. I was sensitive to my Father's feelings and not just mine.
WE may not undo what happened in our family and what we are experiencing may be repercussions on the choices made before.
But one thing's for sure, my family is truly blessed to have known God.
And last night, He answered my most personal prayer.
