Thoughts on Father’s Day

My Dad has been in heaven for nearly 20 years. Today I wish I could have 5 minutes with him. We wouldn’t need to talk. We could just look at each other and know what the other was thinking.

This aspect of our relationship has made communication with God quite natural.

Yet, my prayers are most often addressed to Jesus. He is the one I run to, lean on, and from Whom I expect a response.

Today I was intentional in addressing each person of the Trinity for the purpose of dialoguing about this communication pattern. I specifically asked why I talk more often and more easily to Jesus than I do to Father or Holy Spirit.

“They” individually answered me.

Father God said, “I love to see you and Jesus together and I love to hear you talk. It brings me great joy to watch you grow into His likeness”.

Holy Spirit said, “I actually set up the encounters you have with Jesus”.

The Trinity laughed. We laughed together and then “They” said to me, “We are cool”.

My DAD has been in heaven for eternity Today I had all the time I wanted with Him. We didn’t need to talk. We just looked at each other and knew what the other was thinking.
