Now that Angel is four, she can remember and express her feelings. Yesterday, after just a few days vacation, her grandmother returned her to her Dad. Angel ran fast as soon as she saw Dad in the restaurant. She stretched her arms toward her Dad shouting, "Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!" Angel and Dad are close, cherishing times together. Dad would feed and bathe her and teach her how to brush her teeth. At nights, Angel would lie on Daddy's stomach or put her little legs on top of Daddy. Daddy also teaches Angel about Jesus and God's Word along with her two other siblings. If Daddy goes somewhere to do work, Angel would cry to go with Daddy. Angel loves and trusts Daddy. But last night, she was crying. One may ask, what comfort, money, thrills, what conflict, what selfishness and even sin can justify the pain of a little child such as Angel? But God is with Angel. He will make up for anybody or anything lost plus give her so much more. And that makes the big difference.
