It had been quite some time since Abba and little girl went for a walk on the hills and by the waters. Little girl had been busy trying to be a big girl.
Every morning little girl would run to sit on Abba’s lap. She would just sit with him and they would rock back and forth in the rocking chair and he would hold her and tell her how glad He was that He had adopted her.
Little girl would sit and try to soak it all in and to believe every beautiful word that Abba spoke to her. Day after day this time with Abba was little girl’s sustenance and life. Abba’s words and His embrace upheld her.
Abba and little girl had not taken a walk on the hills nor seen the glistening of the sea for some months due to the cold and the winds and the rain and the hail. Winter had been fierce this year and little girl had almost forgotten how intense winter could be. Little girl began to think that the winter might last forever.
Today, the flowers had begun to bloom again and the almond trees began to blossom.
While little girl sat on Abba’s lap with her head against his chest, he began to show her the flowers on the hills and the trees in the green fields and the vast expanse of the waters in the distance. She looked up and could barely believe what she was seeing. It was so beautiful and the winter storm seemed to have left in a moment.
Little girl wondered if it was safe to run on the hills again with Abba and if they would be able to walk by the waters like they had done many times before winter had descended.
Once again, as if Abba could read little girl’s mind, he spoke to her, “Little girl.”
“Let’s go for a walk on the hills today. Maybe we can even go to the seashores if you like,” Abba said, looking down at the sweet smile on little girl’s face.
“Can we, Abba? I can’t wait! I thought the cold and the wind would last forever. I’m so excited that we get to go for a walk again!” little girl exclaimed.
Abba stood up and picked up little girl and they walked down the steps of the porch to the green grass and they walked and walked through the flowers and to the beautiful shores of the sea. Little girl was so happy.
