Daughter

I just got an unexpected call from my daughter, Danielle. She’s being punished for not doing her Art homework. She was in tears. Her punishment was for her to call me. Her teacher probably thought I’ll scold her ears off. But I surprised even myself when I was cool, calm and collected about the situation.

In a nutshell, I told her calmly that EVERYTHING HAS A PURPOSE. This happened because she has been in the habit of procrastinating when doing her homework. God is using her teacher as a messenger. To give her the message that she needs to pull up her socks. Therefore, by giving me a call I was also her messenger. My message to her was that she shouldn’t feel bad because she can change the way she felt about the situation, not the situation itself. I’m sure she will prioritize her time from now on.

Poor baby. And this was supposed to be a special day for her. She’s getting her prize for Academic Excellence later. (First in Class and First in her Level.)

There must be some reason why you let this happen, God. Or shall I say several reasons:

GOD DOES NOT SCOLD.

GOD IS LOVING.

GOD IS PATIENT.

GOD IS UNDERSTANDING.

GOD IS LOVE.

So since We Are All God, WE ARE LOVE as well.
