Dada Loves You, Baby Girl

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.” John 15:9 (NIV)

It’s okay, baby girl. Yeah, you’re hungry aren’t you? I’m warming up the milk right now. If I give you the bottle right away, it’ll be cold, and you don’t like cold milk. Sometimes in life, you’ve got to be patient and wait for what you need. It’s hard waiting for the right time, isn’t it? But know the thing you’re crying out for is already on its way. Your dada sees you and your dada loves you.

It’s okay, baby girl. Yeah, tummy time is rough, isn’t it? You’re stuck in a place you can’t get out of. And you’re wondering why I’m letting you flail about instead of helping you. But I put you there on purpose because I know how strong it’ll make you. Soon you’ll be crawling all over the place, exploring wherever you want to go. But to get there you need to practice, which means you’re going to have to struggle for a bit. Your dada sees you and your dada loves you.

It’s okay, baby girl. Yeah, it’s cold walking from the house to the car, isn’t it? I don’t like the cold either. But sometimes when you want to go somewhere and do something big, you have to go through something uncomfortable to get there. It’ll be over sooner than you think, and I’ll carry you through it every step of the way. Your dada sees you and your dada loves you.

It’s true. I love you more than you can possibly imagine. But you have another dada, a dada in heaven, and He loves you even more than I do. I know this, because He’s my dada too, and I’ve seen how much He loves me. Any time you see me being good to you, that’s because my heavenly dada showed me how to do it. I hope the way I raise you shows you enough of Him that you want to get to know Him, too.

Not So Boring After All

Have you ever pledged to read through the Bible in one year? What happened when you reached the book of Leviticus? (Be honest, you are among friends now.) It is a book full of requirements and prescriptions. Doesn’t exactly keep you on the edge of your seat like Noah...
