This weekend we heard the parable of the Prodigal Son (I think it should be called the Loving Father). It is about a father who loved his son and let him go on his dream and yet watches for his return. When he returned wanting to be a servant, the father welcomes him back into the family. The father is generous and forgiving. How can I be more like the loving father this week? It will not be easy, but God will help us. God is So Good!! :-)
