For some reason, I began reflecting today on the love of a Daddy for his daughter. It really is a special kind of love. I was remembering how special my Daddy always made me feel and how I craved his attention. He was my "Knight in Shining Armor" for those early years. He called me, Miss WeeWoah, the name I gave myself when I could not pronounce my name. There was always a special place in his lap or in his hug for me and I adored him. A girl needs her Daddy-----but sadly he left far too early.

I often reminded BC of how important he was in his daughter's life. I told him that as long as she felt secure in his love and he made her feel special, she would not feel the need to search for another man, until the time was right. He did a wonderful job of being her "Knight in Shining Armor" . When the time came for her to "Leave and Cleave", she did an excellent job of selecting another "Knight". I choose to think that those early lessons in how a man treats a woman with respect, honor, and love helped her make a great choice.

My finite human mind can only begin to understand the love My Heavenly Father has for me, but thinking about this special love between a Father and Daughter is the beginning of understanding. Most damsels desire a "Knight in Shining Armor", but are often disappointed. The real Knight in our lives and the One that promises deep, satisfying, faithful, and steadfast love is God. As much as my =Daddy loved me, protected me, cared for me & loved knowing all about me, it does not begin to compare to God's love and care. What a Blessing!

Too true.

I envy your relationship with your Daddy as I was always afraid of mine. I was a huge disappointment to him and I would love to forget that aspect. It has always been tough for me to think of the Lord not seeing me that same way... so your point is proven true.
