A photo of a family of five kids
They are grown now, four with kids of their own
The photo is large with them gathered together
The mother, stepdad in the middle
The oldest child was away many years
The three others stayed together
One more sister came along later
The four had scars from the past
This photo spoke of a reunion of years apart
The oldest was now forty three
The youngest was twenty five
All living a life apart from each other
All finding their ways of dealing with the past
One day the real dad was looking at this photo
She watched her dad as he looked at all his four kids
There was her mother and their step dad and another sister
and grandkids he had only met one time before
He asked who is this one? She said that is me.
Her heart broke for you see, Daddy's girl he didn't know
The oldest Daddy's girl, he did remember, but she spoke the truth
One day they talked and found they both had been given a gift
A gift they didn't know each other had been given four months earlier.
When my father and my mother forsake me, Then the LORD will take care of me. (Ps.27:10 NKJV)
This was the gift they both received. They were both had a Father who loved them
A Father who had not left them nor forsaken them and would never do so.
They both know they are Daddy's Girl in a way they had never known before
