Growing up as a child I have fond memories of making dad tread water when I was in preschool because I was scared to jump off the diving board BUT he wanted me to jump in so much that he bribed me with a McDonald's happy meal if I jumped in! I jumped into his safe arms and never looked back! My dad took us swimming just about every week he could. He would have to bribe us with Slurpies from 7-Eleven to get us to leave the pool! Some weeks we would go play putt-putt golf and he got to share in his enjoyment with his grandchildren because William called it "putt golf". Once in awhile we would get a special treat and get to go to Chuck E Cheeses or to G.L.Perry's and buy something! Does anyone remember G.L.Perry? My dad delighted in seeing us be happy and I know that God delights in his children when we are filled with joy!
Tomorrow I will share with you the story of separation and then the story of reconnection! Don't miss it!
