Writing Every Day for Thirty-One Days
Encountering Abba’s Heart
Day 20: Temporary
Little girl laid in bed thinking about her life. She thought about Abba and then she thought back on all the parents and sisters and brothers who had temporarily been in her life before.
Little girl knew this was different. She knew something had changed forever this time. She had been through “transitions” and placements before, sometimes with promises made that were never kept, but this time it was different.
Abba was different. Everything he ever said was truthful and accurate. Every word he spoke was trustworthy and he followed it up with action.
Abba didn’t simply have good intentions. He did what was right and good and true. He was selfless. He gave his all for little girl. He gave his all for his family. His door was always open.
Abba was unique. Little girl’s heart overflowed with love for him as she pondered the beautiful gifts Abba had given her. He loved her in word and deed. He always did what he said he would do.
Abba had been so faithful to little girl and to all his children. He embodied what the best of fathers and the best of mothers only hoped to be.
