There are no perfect fathers, but there are fathers who make it easy to believe our Heavenly Father is strong, loving, and good. I’m thankful today for men who are powerful enough to be weak, who lean hard into grace, who know their steps are ordered by the Lord. He delights in their way. Though they fall, they shall not be cast down, for the Lord upholds them with His hand.
And they have the sense to never let go.
Of course, that leaves their other hand free.
