Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you SHINE LIKE STARS in the universe as you hold out the word of life - in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing. - Philippians 2:14-16

To Be a Little Girl
Daddy, will you catch me if I jump?
And Daddy, when I ask this, I am really wanting to know so much more.
I'm asking, "Will you always be there for me?"
For you see daddy, my heart is still so very tender and I need you to protect it as I heal and grow.
And when my tears come, hold me in your strong arms, for that is where I feel the safest.
And when I don't understand something, your patience and compassion are what is helping me to learn.
Daddy, your love is teaching me to...
You see daddy, what I'm really learning is to be a little girl again.
A little girl that's delighted in, for I've never had a daddy whose attention I captivated.
You daddy, are teaching me that I am a beautiful, precious and irreplaceable child of God
that is worthy of love.
So Catch me when I jump Daddy...
And hold me tight...
And NEVER LET ME GO...
And I will learn to dance for always and forever...
"...to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes..."
