A little while ago I wrote an article for the Bradenton Herald about David Goldman and his quest to bring his son back from the Brazilian captivity. Well he finally brought his son back (this picture is way old by the way). In an interview today on “Today,” he called his son’s return a “Christmas miracle,” and that “somebody’s definitely up there.” He’s right. Someone is definitely up there, and finally brought justice to this complete travesty of justice, much less travesty to common sense.
Apparently his son, still doesn’t call him “Dad” yet, which breaks my heart. But the kid is now 9 years old (been away for 4-5 years), and
David believes it will take a little time.
What a good example of the pursuing love a Father has for His son, even when the son doesn’t seek him out or even call him “Dad.” He just never gave up no matter how bleak it seemed. I don’t know David Goldman, but I sure would like to meet that joker and rejoice with him. Maybe we could talk about God’s pursuing Fatherly love (which I reflected on in the article which is lost in the Bradenton Herald cyberspace). Since Amy and I have been following this story, we are really stoked about this homecoming. If you read the article here, I think you will rejoice and also want to pray imprecations on these Brazilians (but please resist because Jesus says we can’t!).
