More a relationship than a process 64bowtie

Faith is part of my relationship with God. And my relationship with God is like other relationships in many ways. It grows and changes - more based on my needs at any given point in my life than on God's of course.

When my son was little, I used one of those collage frames to show his relationship with all the important people in his life - his mother and father, his grandparents, his uncle, his great grandmother. I used a picture of him interacting with each of these people. And in the center of the picture is a picture of his christening - showing him interacting in relationship with God.

Now that my father is in the hopefully long and not painful process of dying, I'm really wishing for him that he can find peace in the important relationships in his life. Reconciling with my mother and brother, cementing his relationship with me, and gaining strength from a renewed relationship with God.

My therapist warns me that those who don't live particularly well don't die particularly well either, but there's hope isn't there? And faith?
