An Adventure with Abba

Little girl came and found Abba a little bit earlier than usual. She was excited about their day together. Abba had told little girl that they would be going on an adventure. She couldn’t wait to find out what they were going to do.

“Abba, what are we going to do today? I’m so excited,” exclaimed little girl.

“We’re going on an adventure that will help you understand how much I really love you,” Abba replied.

Little girl looked at him with inquisitive eyes. She couldn’t imagine what their adventure was going to be but she trusted him so she grabbed his hand to go wherever he went.

Abba looked down at little girl with those eyes filled with fire and life. His pleasure in her was so far beyond her understanding. Abba loved little girl so much.

Abba loved the journey day after day with little girl and he loved the way she trusted him. Despite everything, she trusted him and she was learning to trust him more and more every single day.

Abba comprehended why this was sometimes difficult for little girl but he had patience with her and knew she would fully overcome her fears one day. He knew that she would comprehend and walk in the perfect love that he had for her one day soon.

Abba’s Love

“Good morning, Abba! I need your help today,” little girl exclaimed as she jumped up on Abba’s lap for her regular morning time with Abba.

“Good morning, little girl. It’s great to see you! How are you today? What can I help you with?” Abba responded.

“I feel much better now that I’m sitting here with you. Abba, can you remind me why you came and got me and adopted me? I sometimes forget and get afraid that I might have to leave,” little girl said these things, a little bit fearful that Abba would be upset with her.

“Oh little girl,” Abba said with deep compassion in his eyes and in his heart, “Do you remember how much I said I loved you and how long we get to be together? I love you beyond your understanding. You can sit with me and experience my love for you day after day as long as you need and as long as you want. And you can do this every day forever because you’re my daughter forever and ever!”

Abba’s eyes were filled with delight and love for little girl. He hugged her while she sat in his lap. Little girl let go of her fear and experienced his delight in her and his love for her in a deeper way than ever before. She closed her eyes and just received Abba’s love. She knew this was the answer to all of her questions.

Encountering Abba’s Heart

Little girl woke up with Abba’s song in her head. She loved his song. It had been in her head since she heard it that early morning a few days before.

Little girl had been learning more and more about his love daily. When she heard his song of love over her, it was made real to her in a way she hadn’t experienced before.

Little girl went to find Abba in his usual morning spot. As she approached him she looked into his eyes and they pierced her heart. Little girl ran and jumped into his arms. She buried her face in his chest, weeping as she felt his great love for her.

Abba just held her and let her cry. He loved little girl so much. He loved how she simply believed him and easily received his love for her daily.

Dancing to Abba’s Song

Little girl woke up extra early that Friday morning. She jumped out of bed and almost ran right for the chair where Abba sat every morning waiting for her to come and sit in his lap.

Before she ran to join him, she heard a beautiful sound she didn’t quite recognize at first. She stopped to wait and listen. Then she recognized what she was hearing and she was moved.

The beautiful sound was Abba’s voice as he sang a song of love. But it wasn’t just any song of love. It was a song of love he was singing about little girl. As he sang about how much he loved her, she thought her heart had skipped a beat. She was so full of joy she wanted to cry. She simply couldn’t contain everything she felt.

As she heard Abba’s voice, she jumped up and down and twirled around and danced a dance expressing the joy of being Abba’s child. Once again, little girl was overwhelmed with gratitude at all Abba had done for her.

Day 31: Almost

Abba held little girl as she thought about all he had done for her. The love Abba had shown her had changed everything for her. Despite her sadness at times, deep down she was filled with a joy beyond expression. She was so excited to be his.

Little girl turned and looked at Abba with a question she already knew the answer to. “Do I get to stay here forever with you? Can I sit in your lap whenever I get scared?”

“Of course. You are my child now and that will never change. You can stay with me forever and you can sit in my lap anytime you want to. I love it when you run to me and sit with me. Don’t ever think you’re too old to come to me. I’m your Abba. Come to me anytime. I always want you near me,” replied Abba with zeal in his heart for little girl.

Tears streamed down little girl’s face as he spoke these words with the tender affection that only a father knows for his children.

Abba held her close, knowing all of her fears and the difficulties she had been through. He knew her completely and loved her wholly. He wiped her tears as she sat with him, feeling the love she had longed for all of her life.

Day 26: Whisper

Little girl heard Abba’s voice. It was just a tiny whisper but she felt it deep down inside her heart. She knew he knew her and she knew he was safe. Yet she still struggled to believe she was going to be okay.

Little girl felt fear come and nearly wrap itself around her at moments. She knew she had nothing to be afraid of with Abba but the fear was so familiar.

Little girl turned toward Abba most times as the fear came to her. Sometimes she would be paralyzed by it and she didn’t want him to know.

Abba knew what was happening. He spoke tender words of love for little girl to her in these moments. It only took a word from his lips to calm her heart again. She knew he loved her beyond understanding and she knew she had never experienced love like this until Abba.

Day 25: Crash

Little girl remembered her life before Abba. Some days she almost forgot it but then she remembered again. Sometimes she struggled with her past experiences and believing things were different now that she was safe with Abba.

Abba knew this and spoke life into little girl’s heart. He knew that she would be able to believe him completely and trust him wholeheartedly in time. He wasn’t impatient with her when she got caught in the fears of the past.

Abba was full of love for little girl and he knew her at the deepest places. Despite her short life, she had experienced much difficulty in those few years. She had learned some things about love and life and people that would take some time to unlearn. Abba was patient with her.

As little girl sat on Abba’s lap he held her and spoke words of love and affection to her. He knew she would fully believe these words one day soon but he was not upset in the least with the process.
