Date with Dad – What a difference a dad makes

what a difference a dad makes
to all the world’s little girls
brought the sun and the flowers
where there might have been rain

what a difference a dad makes
when she sits on his shoulders
from here, the world’s a brighter place
for he’s her pillar of faith

adapted from “What a difference a day made” lyrics

A note to the hubby:

Dear hubs, you’ve been such a loving and strong and big-hearted father. Vera is so blessed to have you to be her guiding light and source of confidence at this tender age. With your love, discipline, and teaching, I’m sure she will grow to fully grasp the extent of the Father’s love for her. She will know that this love would travel to the ends of the earth to pursue her. And years later, when boys start to become interesting, she will also know and understand her value as a young lady. Her value will not lie in her outward appearance. (No no, it will be much more than what the human eye can see.) Nor will it lie in her personality or wit, as bright as they may be. She will grow to understand that her value lies in her identity as a child of God and as a young lady after His heart.

    So beautiful. I love the picture. My dad is one of few words so we struggle with conversation if we’re alone. But he’s really sweet. He always held my hand when crossing the road right up till I got married. We’re only 20 years apart and once, his colleague saw us and felt really uncomfortable cos he thought my dad was havin an affair with a younger woman (me). The relief when he realised the truth!

      What a sweet father you have Adora. My dad is also a man of few words, and I too struggle with conversation, apart from the mundane activities of the day, we don’t really have much to talk about. That’s such a funny and awkward episode, haha so glad the truth came out!

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this website could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Terrific blog!
