Father's Love Letter

This weekend is Father's Day.  For many this is a wonderful time of recognizing the impact of their Fathers love and consistency in their life.  But sadly many become angry because of all the wounds that Father's Day represents.  They have wounds from their father because of what he did or did not do.  These wounds prevent them from knowing their real Father - the one that knit them together in their mother's womb because of His passionate love and desire for them.  You are wanted and enjoyed by your Heavenly Father.  Below is a list of scripture in the form a letter to you.  Read and meditate on them.
