There is such a beautiful Loveletter from our great Heavenly Father, just for you:

This theme comes in a very special moment for me. Last weekend, some painful things from my past came surfacing up in my mind and heart. My biological father hurt me quite bad. And, if I am really honest, I did miss a father when I was a little kid and a teenager. Like when I was about 9 years old, my biological father decided to have no contact at all with me or my brother. I was the one shouting at the top of my voice: “I don’t need a father!”
But how wrong was I.

So , last Sunday I made a layout to write about the pain he did to me, and to get some closure about that piece of past.
And then now, that wonderful letter of God, written to me (and to you). When I was a teenager, I read that letter before. I really loved it. And now the wonderful words are walking in my life again. Just when I need it. God always knows exactly what and when we need things. I really see this as a beginning of a new piece of future. To get closure of the past and look forward to the future.
I made a painting. With parts of the Fathers Loveletter in it. The words and title are Dutch. 

Your next stop is Zeni's Blog. Remember to leave a comment on this post if you want to be considered for one of the Grand Prizes. :)

Love in Christ,

Wendy - what a sweet layout - i love it! i too had a biological father who was not a good father. He left when i was 6 weeks old and i have had no contact with him. My mother raised us mostly alone until i was 15 and then she married a wonderful man who has been my father ever since and I think of him as my father. in fact, my kids only recently realized that he was not my "real father". in my mind, he is. Thanks for sharing your story with us.
