Lesson learned a memory burned indelibly…
The prodigal son never outran his fathers love, although he thought he had, once he became aware of the truth, he possessed an experience that was etched within his heart, and a much deeper love for his father than previously.
The story represents the need to suffer in order to truly understand what was is what is True.
From Able to John, Naomi to Mary and all in between the story is the same, all for our awareness.
Blessed are those who mourn, who allow the workmanship of our Fathers hands to teach them the lessons we are here to learn, for such is the Kingdom of God.
