Daddy's Girl

Oh, I see social media's at it again
Pictures of fathers no one has ever spoken to
Clips of memories, no one remembers
But the world is full of remembrance--
Full of praise and acceptance...

Oh, but I see something beyond an image
And I remember days upon days
Trailing behind those huge footsteps
Sunken in the squishy brown mud,
Across fields and yards--across time.

Oh, there need not be words of expression
No photos or evidence of this one event--
24 hours simply isn't enough
To recall or display the many ways
A real father is defined to a daddy's girl.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
