Begin Today

Wonderful post from Fr Rob:

In short, God wants me to be a good dad. And good dad’s don’t play mind games with their wives and their children. They are generous in expressing love and affection, and they “use their words”. They don’t leave their daughters with any question at all of where they stand in their father’s heart.

And so for the last weeks while my daughter were home, I did my best to let go of the curmudgeon persona, to let the grumpy old mine die. By God’s grace and with his help I made a point every chance I got of letting this new and better dad be born—even at 55, even with my kids grown. It is never too late.

I figure if I had any hope of bringing God’s love to the world, it had to start with me doing a better job of bringing it to my family.

What is it that want to emerge in your life? Whatever it is, may God grant you the grace to live by faith and make it so.
