I had a friend of the family my moms friend after my dad died and he abused me.   I also had a close male friend about15 years older than me who was like a dad he did not abuse me.

Anyone have any comments of having a step-dad after their father died?

Comment by Edward Warden on September 13, 2014 at 4:49pm

I plan to mention this in church tomorrow: My mother said that, after my father died, she went to see her pastor, Jonathan, to talk about her grief.  Jonathan told her, "Sharon, Ed would come back now, even if he could.  He's with God now, praising God in God's presence."  I think that's the place to be, and I'm glad that my father is there."

I felt the same way towards my father Ryan.  and the 40 years have not changed any of that.

Coming up on the 6 month mark / half a year since my father's passing. In ways it seems like there has been some peace with things, in other ways it's still like day 1. I know this is completely individual for all men, some of us share common threads in losing a Dad.  Mine was that event that seemed like it would never happen..he seemed invincible growing up, looked up to him in many ways.  He was the patriarch, my best friend and hero....could talk to him about things that no one else would understand. He was my man. SO I've had to move along this summer without him and just try to find a sort of peace in memories and thoughts, i know I had to sustain life as my kids and family needed me, so that has helped me get through. Every day is different, time moves us on. I hope everyone else is doing okay..

Great memories.

coming soon upon the 40th anniversary of my father's death Jan 21 1975, I am remembering what a great dad he was. I am so grateful for him and all he did for me while he was alive.

How is everybody doing?

Comment by Edward Warden on August 9, 2014 at 7:48pm

One thing that I got from my father -- from both parents, actually -- is a dark, cutting sense of humor.  Once my parents were driving somewhere with my mom's mom and a friend of hers.  My grandmother turned to her friend and said, "You know, I can't think of any two people who have had lives harder than ours," to which my father responded from the driver's seat, "I can think of a few million in India."

Rituals of a supportive nature.

When one hears of the occult, mythologies, and "pagan" religion, coming from the Christianized western world, it's not a good thing that comes to mind. It is, however, that most occult persons align themselves with "White magic", and even Satanism has a Ritual of Compassion, attached below... But I've done many rituals of compassion, and in the end even if you're not a MAGIC MISSILE person, it's still very comforting to one that someone took time out of their lives, did a ritual - a set…See More

Prayers and Ideas for struggling men.

I know this isn't your typical theological question, but I feel it can be helpful. I personally need some prayer. I am struggling with guidance. I seem go be having some relationship trouble. I firmly believe God put this woman in my life to be wife one day (when funds and scheduling allow), but I keep picking fights about stupid things. I would like some prayer for guidance and how I should act. Thanks guys. I hope this thread ends up being a way for all of us guys to ask for some prayers.
