Watching her grow up

There is a connection that God designed between daddy's and their daughters that is so deep and powerful it is hard to put into words.

As I watch my daughter grow up I realize day by day we are closer than I ever imagined. Her need to have me as her pillar of stability and protector and my need to have her sweet innocent love is an amazingly deep relationship. Her life of only 3 years and 7 months impacts mine deeply.

I find myself appreciating the moments I have with her more and more. The more time I spend with her the more I learn about myself and what is truly important to me.

It seems like only yesterday I was holding her in my arms in the hospital and those perfect new eyes just starring at me. Or the first time she reached out her hand and touched my face. The first squeeze of my finger by hers. All those incredible sounds she made as she tried to utter words for the first time. It really seems like it was only yesterday. How time goes by so fast.

As she grows I realize that EVERYTHING I do has an impact on her. Her life is most influenced by mine. That is quite a responsibility when you think of it! I want to be the best for her and pray that I can.

Even today she is so active and even has her own opinion about things. I find myself challenged by her many questions about everything. She loves to play and create with her hands. She loves to cuddle and be held tightly. She loves to get my attention on whatever she does. These things are what are most important to her now. Deep inside I ask myself how am I doing at it? Am I a good father to her? Do I give her enough attention? Am I meeting her deepest needs?

Yes, she is the beat of my heart. Literally she is! There is no closer connection I have to any other on this earth than I have with her. I guess this was the original design, for daddy's to be real life hero's and model princes for their daughters. And daughters to be the charming princesses that gives daddy's the power to always fight for love, to excel to higher heights in life for their sakes. What a grand design!


My prayer this day is you would help me to be the best father for her. To be there for her in the times that are most important to her. Please give me the means to always provide her with the best life and protect her always. She is your gift to me and I could not ask for more than her.

Thank you for her precious life!  Her life reminds me of your great love.

From the heart,


Could there be anyone more beautiful on the face of this earth?

  10. With no updates, it almost makes you fear the worst.

  11. Hi David, I dont know where to start its 3:39 in the morning and I accidentally stumbled upon your blog by looking for blue grass over the internet. I just found your blog just now. I cried reading through it and I really wish you and your family the best and may God guide you as He always does. It sucks that you have to go thru all of it. I hope you will try and give it a shot to President Duterte that someone in his team might re investigate...I hope someone in the justice system who is clean can help this case. The previous admin was a mess. Again it breaks my heart for you have done alot...I hope justice will be served. I know in my heart that the mansion God prepared for you is much larger than in tarlac. Hehe.. God bless you and your family.
