As Tears Roll Down My Face

I got home from the radio station tonight and found a Father's Day card that Bailey left for me. I opened it and started to read it. The card was sweet, but what my precious daughter wrote made tears stream down my face. My heart was instantly grabbed by her words. I just have to share it with you...I'm sure she will not mind. She wrote:

You are the best Dad anyone could possibly ask for. You do everything you can just to make me happy. I'm glad they set aside at least one day for Father's day-even though it would have to be Father's Day EVERYDAY just to show how I feel! I love you so much and wishing the best Father's Day for the best father in the! I love you! Bailey.

Well, here I go again...crying! I have never been touched so much in all my life! How can I ever thank God enough for giving me such a sweet, loving daughter? I am a very busy man with 4 jobs. I love every single one of those jobs! Those jobs are my passion! But I will never love a job as much as the job of being Bailey's daddy! Tonight, God has reminded me just how truly blessed I am. There is no other love like the love a daddy has for his 13-year old little girl!

In Genesis 18:19, "The Lord says, 'I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord to do what is right and just."

Oh Father, thank you for giving me my precious daughter, Bailey. She is a wonderful little girl who brings me so much happiness! Please always help me to be the best Daddy I can be for her. In Jesus name, Amen.


  1. You are an awesome daddy to Bailey ... give thanks every day for that blessing! Thank you for sharing ... Have a Happy Father's Day!!

  2. My heart sank when I read this..... You are incredible ... whenever you feel down just remember that you have a miracle in your life every day and thats Bailey....
