A Facebook friend of mine recently posted this message: “Sometimes all a girl needs is a phone call with her daddy.” My heart was in immediate agreement with that statement.
Because my earthly daddy has been gone for almost thirty years, I can’t talk with him, but I can easily rephrase my friend’s statement and say, “Sometimes all a girl needs is a chat with her heavenly Father.”
I share everything with Him. My gratitude, my praise, my troubles, my concerns, my joys, my dreams, my desires, my questions, my daily stuff and even my silliness. And He responds intimately and tenderly, showers me with hugs and kisses, and reminds me how special I am to Him.
I’m a Daddy’s girl, and I delight in the time we spend together. When I turn my attention to Him and rest in His embrace, I’m at peace.
