There is a show on the SyFy channel that Vickie and I watch called "Eureka." It is about a sheriff in a town of geniuses. The Sheriff is always working through comedic catastrophes that the geniuses have induced with their experiments. But the biggest dilemma the sheriff often faces is his daughter, Zoe, who is a bit of a delinquent because she has been starved for love since her mom and dad divorced.

In one episode Sheriff Carter has about reached his breaking point when Zoe steals someone's identity and uses their credit card. In the scene Zoe says, "I thought that was it. I thought you were done with me." Sheriff Carter's response changes Zoe and his relationship through the rest of the series. It becomes the turning point for her character. He says, "Zoe, you are my daughter. I could never be 'done' with you."

In a real way, God is never "done" with you. He loves you with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3) that is renewed daily. His love covers a multitude of sins (1 Peter 4:8).
