fatherly advice

my daughter made this card for me. simple as it may be, i appreciate it was created from the heart. in return, for some reason i now thought baffling, i gave her this piece of advice :

"when you grow up, don't marry someone like me, if possible.
instead, marry someone like your brother,
who loves God, loves people, & who will love you endlessly."

she just smiled & gave me a hug.

Adoi DOC! What kind of advice is that?! I think, with your dad fighting for his dear life, your emotions are now in a roller coaster mode. Take care DOC!

Minus the part on "don't marry someone like me", that's a good advice to daughter. This is what I have for Rachel -

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

My daughter used to make cards like that when she was young...and they mean more than the commercially-produced ones as they come from the heart! Ya, imperfect though we may be...we do have our good bits and pieces somewhere. After all, who is perfect? The most important thing is...we try to be!
