Dad’s are fixers. They just can’t help themselves. It’s a guy thing. Broken bicycles. Broken cars. Broken cellphones. The problem we run into, as guys, is that tools, advice, glue and great mechanical skills can’t fix broken hearts. And they can’t fix being off-mission for years at a time. We tend to think that in the last years or season of life – we can make up for lost time; you know, do the things that we never took the time to do – give what we never gave – love where we never loved. Actually? We make a difference when the goodness and love God anoints us and runs out of our hands into those around us. We can consistently leave things better than we find them – instead of trying to fix them, because we broke them.
