Sheri I read this book on my flight a couple of weeks ago. It had been sitting on the shelf in my work room. I was a little hesitant about reading it, one reason being I did not have a relationship with my father, didn’t have any idea how a father daughter relationship should feel like, and wasn’t sure i wanted to read about yours.
I am so glad I followed the nudging of what I now KNOW was the Holy Spirit to put your book in my carry on. I began reading as we took off and finished it before I reached my destination. I laughed, cried (happy my seat was a window seat), totally enjoyed the journey with you and your dad, I loved his view of life. Sheri, I was forced to see my life without my father from a different pair of eyes…Gods…He was with me all along.
We shared lots of time together some that i was aware of others when I thought I was alone He was right there. For most of my life I envied and at times resented my friends who had fathers in their lives. It was not until my mid forties that I finally forgave my father for not being around (that’s another story for another day). As I read your book, I felt the love you and your dad had for each other. I totally get why you love coffee.
Sheri, my heart melted as I read about your trips to feed the pigeons, it hit me in a different way. It spoke volumes to me of the love of my heavenly Father for me, how He sent different people in my life to feed and nurture me when I needed it.
How he continued feeding me even when I was angry at him about my “fatherless” situation. Crazy as it may seem that one story healed the rest of my wounded heart.
Thank you for sharing your dads journal with us. I love watching God as He enlarges your territory.
Got a copy of God’s Got It, pause and share your story, we’d love to hear from you.
