Never Too Late

Today, I watched a popular TV show where children of divorced parents openly expressed their feelings about one or the other parent. It stun me when one young lady said-- It’s too late, I don’t want to see my father again. Even as an adult I do not want him in my life.

First, I wanted to side with this young lady, because who would want a dead beat anything in their lives. Her feelings may have been justified, for whatever reasons.

Then, I thought, this is a never ending cycle of bitter love hate relationships.

What’s the goal? Where will it end? Is it pride or protection?

Why would one be so closed to the idea of their father/parent, their own flesh and blood, reentering their life, under no circumstances, not even for the better?

The idea is to overcome adversity and it starts at home. We can forgive the French, German, Jews and Slavery, but not our parents.

For many years I felt the same about my dad but, somewhere down the line my heart changed. Against all my bitterness, anger and disappointment, I reopened my heart to my father and was again hurt, but I felt better.

The same has happened to me and my children. I now believe they do not want me in their lives or they want me there the way they want me. They did not get a chance to know me so they only know what they have been taught. I respect that, but I have not closed my door to them.

After you are dead and buried you can not say, I am sorry. Words is mightier than the sword. Regardless to what happened yesterday, you'll be amazed at how much better you will feel and how much family change you can affect in a short period of time. As long as you are willing to change for the better, God can work in you to produce incredible results in yourself and in those you love!

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. We all make mistakes. Rich or poor, old or young, it is never too late, I mean never too late!
