Item description for You Don't Always Get What You Ask For: Lessons of Love from Dad by Jim Wilcox...
Overview Peace, patience, and the will of God can be found around us every day. But often it takes someone like Jim Wilcox to remind us of that. In this sometimes funny, sometimes touching booklet, he walks us through grace, mercy, justice, wisdom, and other lessons of love. If you're a father-or have a father-you'll relate to these little snippets on the thrills and spills of life with father while being reminded that life with the Father is the source of all joy.
Publishers Description Grace, mercy, justice, wisdom--such are the gifts of a father. These gifts and many others are bestowed without hesitation from our Heavenly Father--and are easily recognizable for those of us wearing the fatherhood hat as the latest fashion. For those of us who have filled this role for a long, long time, acts of mercy and pearls of wisdom may be a little harder to detect. Paper

More About Jim Wilcox
Jim Wilcox wakes up every morning with one goal in mind: to make someone laugh. As he was growing up in San Jose, California, where the mornings can blind you with sunrays and the evening songs can sing you to sleep, his list of what he wanted to be when he grew up was brief. First, he wanted to be a rock 'n' roll singer. Second, he wanted to be a professional comedian. And third, he wanted to be the editor of a small mountain-town weekly newspaper. Well, if you'd put a mountain in Oklahoma City, he'd be doing all of those things at Southern Nazarene University, where he has taught since 1979. He occasionally performs onstage in many of the university variety shows. He has more than a dozen captive audiences each week in his writing classes, who laugh as they learn. And he is the adviser to the student newspaper.
Jim Wilcox currently resides in Oklahoma City, in the state of Oklahoma. Jim Wilcox was born in 1952.
