Where is My Daddy


Joys of Joel

where is my daddy, effects of divorce and separation, broken homes to a child's eyes where is my daddy – joys of joel.wordpress.com

A long talk after our barbie games, my childhood friend burst into tears. Her first broken heart at the tender age of 10. Her parents separated. At such a young age i’m totally clueless why some things are not meant to stay.

Twenty fours years later, history repeats itself. She just separated from her husband after eleven years of being together , they finally call it quits.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
