Investors — PD and Rose

Posted by Colleen Woods on

Dressed in my standard blue jeans, T-shirt, and sneakers with a puffy mauve winter jacket, I walked up to the dimly lit camper in the middle of the Christmas tree lot where PD worked to raise money for his ministry. I could hear the loud cheerful laughter of the guy in charge, who also happened to be my youth leader. “Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Don’t NEEDLE me,” I could hear PD cry as I opened the little camper door. “You’re BARKING up the wrong TREE!” another kid responded with similar Christmas-tree-lot humor. Their laughter lit up the somberness that pervaded my little world.

How do you put words on a page that adequately convey the depth of gratitude and affection for a friendship that has spanned three decades? We hold each other's embarrassing moments and regrets, victories in the momentous and the mundane, intellectual and theological queries, honest questions and deepest doubts. We've shared the major events of life: weddings, first homes, the birth of children, and the death of a beloved mother. Ours has been a loyalty tested by distance and time zones, personality and style, and proven true because of its longevity, depth, and strength.

When I was a child, my dad was my hero; as a teen, my challenger; and when I became an adult, he became my ally. At every stage of life, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that my dad was there for me. I know a lot of women in this world are not able to say that about their fathers. Mine, however, earned the right to be called “Daddy.” He reflected my Heavenly Father’s heart.
