Right there beside me...

Missy could fall down and hurt herself even if I'm walking right there beside her. That doesn't mean that I allowed it to happen. She knows with her father's unconditional love, I'll pick her up and I'll carry her. I'll try to heal her. I'll cry when she cries. And I'll rejoice when she is well. In all the moments of my life, God has been right there beside me. The truth of God's love is not that He allows bad things to happen. It's His promise that He'll be there with us when they do. - Janette Oke, Clark speaking in Love Comes Softly
