Where Was God

 
If you have about three minutes...
you might like to listen to this.

42 years ago today, when I was fifteen, my father died.  He died when he was 41 years old.
He's been dead longer than he was alive. 
I would have liked to have known him better....but I'm glad to have known him at all.

Oh Marie...this was such a wonderful statement by Mr. Huckabee and so, so very true!!!! I know there are kids with ADD and other ailments now but this foundation is essential for us all!!!! I love all that he says...xxoo, Dawn

I heard this when it aired the other day. I agree with every word he said. As Christians we know that God is always near and always at work. It's a shame how we've allowed Him to be "excused" from so much. We have a lot of work to do in showing this to others.
It's nice that you remember your father today. Fifteen was awfully young to lose your dad. Do you ever wonder what he would have thought of the woman you've become? I'm sure he'd be proud of one with such a sweet spirit!

I agree with everything this man said also!!!! We are in the mess we are in because of a lack of morals, parents that care at all about what their kids are playing, or reading, they are just too busy working! I say to those parents....FIND A WAY to be with your kids...and if your child has mental illness don't deny it like this woman did....find them help!!!!! I was so sad to hear that she had this great social life, but speaking of her child was off limits....she knew he had problems...and she had guns int he house????? The family unit is what is gone and MUST come back!!!!! OK, off my soapbox now....
