The Heart of a Woman

The heart of a woman starts forming from the time she is born.  With every word spoken, every action taken she is formed.  She knows when she is loved and cherished; or dispassionately tolerated and placed to the side.  She will develop the heart of a warrior or one made of stone.  She will live with passion or survive with apathy.  Yes, a true woman's heart is cultivated, and not something to be taken lightly.  

I hope Elizabeth knows where she stands.  I hope she knows how Hopson & I feel about her.  That, like her brothers, we cherish the day she was born.  We hold her in high esteem, not because she's our daughter, but because she is one of God's most beautiful creations.  Her truest beauty shines from within:  her caring spirit and servant's heart.  What a thing of beauty to behold.  A true treasure, more precious than diamonds. 

I can't think of anything more important than for a daddy to let his daughter know how important she is.  Tonight is the annual Father/Daughter dance, and right now our father & daughter are preparing to leave.  I know they will have fun hanging out just the two of them with about 300 other dads and daughters.  All those daddies pouring life into their daughter's hearts:  the women of the next generation.  What a beautiful thing!

Celebrating Life!

  1. Love this post. Oh, so true. She looks so grown up and proud to be with her daddy. Daddy's are so important in a girl's life.
