The Calling of Ella McFarland is populated with strong male characters with different personalities.

man-164217_1280Somewhat like King David, Ella’s twin brother Cade McFarland is a study in personality contrasts. 

Taller than any other man in the room, Cade is impossible to miss; yet attracting attention appeals to him not in the least. 

lamb-292512_1280Although he’s rugged like a cattleman, he chooses shepherding. His extra-large hands cradle lambs and soothe ewes in lambing season. 

A staunch defender of Truth, Cade is the first to forgive. 

His fuse is short and easily lit with Ella, but limitless with Lily.

He can act impulsively, but he’s quick to repent. He’s driven by a sense of responsibility. hands-799772_1280

He’s handsome beyond describing, the catch of the county, but has yet to give away his heart completely–except to God.

My grandson Davis’s name derives from King David’s. Cade is the kind of man I can see Davis growing up to be. I believe he’s on his way. 

God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’ Acts 13:22b
