This Day

I knew this day would come
When the doctor announced
It’s a girl!

I knew this day would come
When the pastor called you by name
I baptize you in the name 
Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

I knew this day would come
As I sang you goodnight songs
“. . . now the light has gone away . . . “
“. . . what a friend we have in Jesus . . . “

I knew this day would come
Cuddled up together at day’s end
Reading our adventure stories
Praying side-by-side
“. . .  now I lay me . . . 

I knew this day would come
Basketball games in the St. Paul gym
Kristen, Becca, and Allie Hoop
Free-throws, Sweaty socks, laughter
A ride home from Austin with
Zoe, a golden retriever 

I knew this day would come
Confirming your faith
“… let us run with perseverance the race marked for us,
Fixing our eyes on Jesus
The pioneer and perfecter of faith”

I knew this day would come
Learning to drive
High School, new friends, teachers
HOBY – servant leadership
A time of growth and learning
The Marinist Award

I knew this day would come
The Big Decision – what college
USC or Villanova 
Hanging out in Florida –  Final decision!

I knew this day would come
Singapore – freshman study aboard
Friendships, Fun, Food, Fantastic adventures
Graduating with honors and smiles – Nova Nation
A girl grown into a 
Beautiful young lady!

I knew this day would come
When I would meet him!
Hiking in Colorado with a delightful young man
How delighted I was to discover
He was the young man I was praying for you

I knew this day would come
When I would give you into the hands of another 
And now . . .
And now this day has come
When vows are exchanged
Two lives coming together begin
A new life-long love journey 

I knew this day would come
And I feel incredibly bless to be here with you
I also know there are many more days to come!
A Father-Daughter love-bond
This Day

Live and Love Generously
David Meade

Oh David what a beautiful tribute to your daughter on her special day, I am sure she cherishes the precious memories you have detailed so vividly. I wish i had had this sort of close relationship with my own father, alas it was not meant to be. Many congratulations to the happy couple:-) hugs Jan xx
