My Daughter

I want to pay tribute to my daughter, Debi. She is the best daughter in the world. She is compassionate, caring, understanding, helpful, and I could not ask for a better daughter.

She has been this way ever since she was a really young girl. When she was a little girl she always wanted to be helpful in any way she could be. She liked to cook and she was a really good one.

What does daughter mean to me?
D is for Debi
A is for Always there
U is for Unique
G is for Godly
H is for Helpful
T is for Truthful
E is for Excellence
R is for Righteousness

God blessed us with a daughter, Debi and she is always there. She is so unique, she is exceptional and rare. She is a godly woman, she shows respect for God and lives accordingly. She is very helpful, sometimes you don't have to ask, she just does it. She is a truthful woman. She knows God doesn't like lies so she tells the truth. She is an excellent daughter. She is pure and exceptional. She is righteous, a virtuous woman, and she is respectable.

Debi is a 'Children's Pastor.' And she is an awesome pastor. Some people don't think you have to work hard being a children's pastor but I have seen her work a few times getting her message ready for a Sunday morning and she works very hard and diligently. She thinks it has to be perfect and believe me, that is exactly what it is. She believes her message should be as good as the senior pastor's message.

She homeschooled her children and was great at that also. She helped them every day to be able to teach them what was expected of her.

She is a whiz at the computer and every time we need help (it is usually her Dad that messes everything up) but she comes out to see what is wrong. She has been known to work on the computer all day long to get it straightened up so he can use his computer. I thank you for this, Debi.

I haven't felt good the last couple of days and she has called me to see how I am doing. She didn't have to do this but being the woman she is she called not just once but probably four or five times. She took time out of her busy schedule to see how I was doing. I appreciate this very much, Debi.

Debi, you are my special daughter and you always will be. I love you very much and I thank God for you, you a real blessing.

You guys sure know how to make me feel good. We all appreciate a pat on the back. To be honest, I NEEDED that today! I've been fighting a 'pity party' for a couple of days now...your kind words have helped me.

There is no greater joy than sharing time with the ones you love. I love you, Mama. I love you and Daddy so much. I cherish every moment I get to spend with you...working on computers or whatever. God has truly blessed me with parents and children like you and my kids. It's even better when we share the bond of being a member of God's family!
