Father's Gift

The Holy Bible says in Ecclesiastes chapter 3:1-2 "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. 2 a time to be born and a time to die."  

With a permission of my husband, a part of his story as being a son, his few but treasured memories with his biological father, and how his father's sudden death impacted our relationship as husband and wife as shared in this article. 

The first time my husband and I met, he became open to me about his parents' relationship set-up.  He grew up with his mother (my mother in law) without the presence and guidance of his biological father. 

At the age of 8 years old, an opportunity to communicate with his father happened with the help of a relative. This bridged the gap between Joshua and his dad instantly.  As he said, "it was a 15 minutes arranged talk over the phone" and Joshua described it as an "eight years old boy life changing decision".  The decision for him to see his dad face to face was left up to him.

Failure, retest, and confidence

"Not to be overly confident", these were the words that my husband humbly answered me when I asked him what he learned after he failed to pass the drivers license knowledge test that effects his character

Joshua hasn't had his driver license for a matter of years already since he lost it due to driving under the influence of alcohol during the time that he was still wondering in the wilderness and was cold in his relationship with Christ Jesus and that is another story to tell.
