…that I give my firstborn away. I did not really understand what I was getting myself into almost 19 years ago when we had our first baby. I also did not understand just how incredibly fast this 19 years would go. I don’t know how many times I have heard people say, “Enjoy them while you can, because they grow up so fast and then they are gone.” That is the things that old people say. Not me!
She was the first one to ever call me daddy. That was cool to hear for the first time. She still calls me daddy, and it is just as cool to me today. She is the first one that I get to walk down the isle. Not sure if that is cool or not, we will find out here in a little bit.
She loves Jesus. She is marrying a man that loves Jesus. That is the most important thing to me. I hope that make a lot of money, become famous and have lots of kids, but that would all mean nothing if they did not love Jesus. I am praying that the love they have for each other and for Jesus will never fail. That will be the secret to them having a strong marriage.
I will probably cry sometime during the day. I am a softy and an emotional person. I will probably feel like I have lost a daughter (I know, I am gaining a son). But I am happy for them. I will continue to pray for them. This is their day, and I am proud of them!
Oh, and by the way, enjoy them while you can, because they grow up so fast and then they are gone.
