A Note From the Preacher to his Daughter

When I graduated from high school the Preacher gave me a graduation present.  It was a small bright blue billfold sized New Testament Bible with my name engraved on it.  I still have it to this day.  It sits on my desk as a constant reminder that I should be a good girl.  If I’m feeling really good I put it in my purse and it tags along with me wherever I may roam.

On a blank page inside he wrote the following:

May 17, 1992

To my loving daughter.  I am very proud of you as a father and a Pastor.  I know it has been hard being a preacher’s kid, but you stood well.  May God bless and keep you and accomplish His total will for your life.

Love,

Dad

See, he did care.   I wonder if he would say the same thing now.  I hope so.

  1. so you keeps it on your desk as a reminder to be good… not done much good then! but it is the Bible and there is salvation for all so maybe it stops you from being naughtier than you could be. However if you were a good girl what would you have to blog about!

    No you stay as you are… but don’t go too far!
