Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Fathers are Needed by their Family 2
This post is from my Book,
“Rescue the Stories Book Three”
Dad Reading to his Children
Every work place has their own set of abbreviations that
mean something to those working there.
At our job at the Family Support Department, there were
words and abbreviations known only to us.
AP meant Absent Parent (could be either one).NCP was Non Custodial Parent, again either
one.Our main function at our job was
to collect the monthly child support payments and forward them to the CP, (Custodial
I remember one day, when my co-worker was extremely upset
with her husband.I knew she was angry
by the way she tore into her work.A bee
was certainly under her bonnet!!
Later that morning, up the stairs happily skipped one of the
girls from the front desk carrying a large bouquet of roses.She sang a sort of sing song remark as she
yodeled, “These just came for YOU,” then she handed the lovely flowers to my
friend.The girl continued, “He must have done something real-ly bad!”
The other workers who could not help overhearing laughed,
but my friends face softened.
When all was quiet and my friend was ready to listen; I

I began, “You know, darlin’, I have noticed that most of
these NCP cases we deal with all have an interesting story.Many times, the woman becomes so angry with
her stupid, no good, useless husband, that she dumps him for what ever good
reason she believes.
The amazing part of
these cases is that there is usually another women out there waiting to grab
that worthless, son of a gun, as soon as he is free.I wonder if the wife might just be better off
to forgive that no good guy, keep him and simply go on with their life?”
That day, she was listening but she said nothing.I knew in my heart that she had got the
message “Big time.”We never talked
about her situation, and there was no need to do so.
The story went on; their home was not broken, he applied for
and got a better job.He continues to be
a good father to their children, and they have a somewhat happy home!
Wives (and hubby too) always be forgiving, and Husbands (and
wife too), make no opportunity for offense.
Happy Father’s day to you out there, no matter who you are!
