Merry Christmas......The Prodigal

......and then a bit of angst.......I've been thinking, and as Dragn says, a dangerous thing.....

Got some troubling news from the X last evening, jusst in time to lower the Joyful Spirit a little, but the fun of Stockings and Music and Hope overcame.....we're having a wonderful Season....

Oh, where was I.......oh yes, the "News"......seems that my youngest She Cub was in a bit of trouble, 20 years old, and making some Bad decisions, ....as in getting the Law involved......

I've spoken to her in the past, but she's at that age where visiting with her Sire is.....well, not as cool as spending time with her "buddies"......

Anyway, the deed is done, the Consequences WILL BE PAID, and She hopefully will learn The Lesson, before it is too late for Redemption......

My Number Two Born....Hi Annie, I know you're reading, did some of the same "sort" of acting out at this bothersome age, but she came back "Home"....put it behind her, married a Fine Fellow.....don't get a big head Cub in Law, you're still on probation with Wollf, and has given me two Grand-Cubs.....Wonderful young Lady is my Number Two.....

Anyways.....today I was wondering what to do, and No Kidding, it was if G-d's still whispering things, even to me.....

I was reminded of JC's three Parables that went together....The Lost Coin, The Lost Sheep, and The Prodigal Son.......

In the first two parables, the lost were found by searching. But the younger son was found by waiting. The spiritually lost were already coming to Jesus; he didn't need to seek them out. They had been spiritually dead and were now showing interest — they wanted to be taught by Jesus. Jesus received them and ate with them. His reception would have encouraged them to keep the laws they already knew and to continue to listen to him for more instruction in God's way.

But the parable is not just about Jesus in the first century; it is a timeless message about God the Father. He rejoices over and honors every sinner who repents.

He doesn't wait for a full and formal apology; he perceives the attitude and comes toward us.

This theme of joyful acceptance, similar to that of the first two parables of this chapter, dominates the first part of this parable........

This is the lesson illustrated by the father:

He is always ready to welcome a returning child............

As am I. That's the Lesson, right?

Anastasia, I Love You. You Screwed up, made a bad decision.....Change your Heart. I am always here for you....and more importantly, as the Parable Really speaks......

So is G-d. You are Forgiven. I'm here for you, and just as the Father in the Prodigal Story.....I'm watching and waiting for you.

Brother Wollf; I think you hit the nail on the head, forgiveness comes when the attitude adjusts (repentance; turning away from the mistake). God is always ready, and is ready when we turn.

I pray that your Wonderful Young Woman makes the same play as the young man in the parable.

Good man, and wise you are. (No, I am not Yoda)

I know exactly where you are coming from. I have a prodigal daughter also, my youngest. God has shown me that just like the prodigal's father, the key is unconditional love. Not to condone the actions, but to attempt to show her in every way possible both through our actions and our words that she is loved by us and precious beyond words. If I will be obedient and love her as I should, then He will take care of the rest. You and your family are in my prayers.
