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.
