Having a Good Father's Day

The wheels of Providence turn ever surely, ever slowly.
God's temporal orchestra playing out each day and hour.
Pretty awful music to most.
A chalkboard and fingernail shudder.
Loved ones die.
Homes burn to the ground.
Marriages dissolve.

And in the midst of the pain God says these extraordinary words:

"And we know that all things work together for good to those
who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

He doesn't say all things are good, but that all things are 'working
together' for good. The purposes, rhyme and reasons for life's horrors
will be made known in time. All questions will be answered. All tears
wiped away.

Of course, the implication is that all things are working together for
'bad' to those who don't love God, who don't know Him or follow His Son.

Will it be a good Father's Day for you?
