(January 17, 2016, three years ago)
I am glad that you see my daughter’s true beauty. Please don’t be upset if I do not trust you right away.
It’s not you. It’s me.
I have very vivid memories of my life at your age.
My purpose in life, then, was to avoid hardship, and to make myself happy.
I have poured my life into your girlfriend from the moment of her birth.
I have tried to model for her what a man should be.
I have tried to give her every opportunity to receive the Life that God offers.
If you would like to gain my trust, I only ask two things:
1. Care more for the well-being of my daughter than you do for your own life.
2. Live your life, make all your decisions in such a way that will move my daughter CLOSER to Jesus because of His life shining from you.
With great hope for the future,
(daughter’s name)’s dad
