My picture of God was somewhat negative and punitive. He was even stricter than my parents. Not only did Mom and Dad have their rules, but God did too-and more of them. Mom and Dad’s hung in an 8 ½ by 11 picture frame. God’s took 66 books to record. I had my doubts I would ever please him sufficiently or efficiently.
