“Daaadaaaaaa!!!” Miss K shouts from one room to another.
Immediately her daadaa answers “yes”, she sits up and crawls to look for him. Once she gets to him, she stands, and motions to be picked up. The look of pure joy and glee when she is in her father’s arms is unmatched.
At a tender age, she has figured out the her daaadaaa is a figure of strength, safety, a human jungle gym and perhaps the funniest human being in her world. He has her in stitches every single day. When he comes home every day, she stops what she is doing, says ‘daaadaaa’, and crawls towards him. Woe unto him if he decides to do something else before she says hi to him, she will wail the house down.
Every time I watch Miss K, call out to daadaa I remember this verse:-
It is an honor to watch the two of them. Many times it makes me miss my dad, but over the weeks I have learned that though I lost my earthly father, I have a Heavenly Father who is patiently waiting for me to call out his name, seek Him out and let Him love on me. I choose not to keep Him waiting any longer. May I relate with him as a young girl and her father, fully aware that He loves me and wants the best for me.
Truly, my best days, full of joy, peace and all round fun are ahead of me, in Him.
Whose name are you calling today?
