Dads give guidance to their sons and moms guidance their daughters. But particularly as girls mature, they need their dads’ perspective as they approach significant crossroads. Daughters need the benefit of their dads’ life experiences and wisdom as they consider important life decisions and think through possible consequences of their choices.
Your daughter also needs to know that you cherish her as a person and you admire her as a lovely young woman. She isn’t just another person; she is special and unique, and worthy of your attention. She is royalty. Your love maybe what it takes for her not to fade into the shadows of darks wondering around looking for hope. She needs you to be a dad not a stranger perpetrating to be someone he’s not.
Begin today by loving her with a simple phone call, taking her to lunch or better yet a hug.

Tongues of Fire
We are living during a time when there are no longer conversations or rumors of wars; this is an actual day-by-day occurrence. This perpetual picture can be viewed not only within the United States but also globally.
I believe that the underlining issue is a lack of communication within several tiers and systems of cultures. However, we must not forget that there is a high breakdown in language.
Just a word pronounce the wrong way or even out of context will set off a gang fight, war or something as simple as a divorce.
Don’t believe me, take time out and do some research. I used the term perpetual picture for this one reason. Historically and culturally this has been taking place since the first century. This has filtered over into the family dynamics. For the family to begin the healing process, we must begin with taming our tongues and asking for forgiveness.
Just something to think about not debut about!
Stop allowing someone or something to take your strength away.
