Day 27 All The Time

It ain’t always easy to remember
Though I can’t say why it is that we forget
It’s a truth that is stronger than Samson
It follows you like a silhouette
But this morning getting ready for the doctors
Getting ready for the first of many tests
I couldn’t see the forest for the trees
And every tree was full of hornets nests
Then came the message from my daughter
I read the words when I heard my cell phone chime
“I am proud of u, ur being strong and I love u
And God is good. ALL THE TIME.”
Must admit I got a bit choked up
My girl had hit the nail right on the head
I’d been looking for the right words to tell her
But she’s the one who found them first instead
So I sent her a text back in response
Just To confirm I understood
I simply replied ‘all the time.’
And let us both fill in the blank:
God is good.

One of the finest moments of my fatherhood
