Single parenting under God's care

I Was a single parent for about ten years. But strange as it may seem, I never really thought of myself in typical terms as either "single" or as a "parent"! Let me explain. Although I had a child in my care, I've always known that God was my Father and Mother, my only real Parent and my child's only real Parent.

This confidence in God came as I was growing up. My father passed on when I was five years old, and my mother never remarried. But since she had taught us to know God as our Father and Mother, we never felt as though we came from a single-parent household. Nor did we feel our resources were limited or that we lacked a "fathering" presence.
