Dearest Daughter...(letter 1)

I have been writing these letters to keep for my daughters for a time when they are grown and need to hear them. I wanted to share them with you every now and again in a series called "Dear Daughter". It is a series from mothers of any age to daughters of any age. You can read them to your daughters, or read them as though they were from your mother. At the end of each post with be an image of the letter on stationary that you are free to download and print off for your daughters.

Dearest Daughter,

What I want you to know is...

 that I love you with all my might. 

There is nothing you can do to take away my love for you. 

But, even though I am your biggest fan I will fail you sooner or later and it will hurt. 

I don't mean to hurt you, 

but I am not without fault.

 I am a sinner and my imperfections often shine brighter than my strengths. 

For the pain I have and will cause, 

I am sorry from the depths of my heart. 

You must know though,

 that when it feels like everyone (including and especially me) 

has abandoned you,

 and you are at the bottom of a dark lonely pit,

your perfect Heavenly Father 

will leap off his throne to come to you. 

He will fiercely and quickly come 

on the wings of the wind

 to your cry for help. 

Mountains will tremble in his presence. 


he will draw you up in his righteous hands, 

 protecting you from those who hurt you. 

He will wash you in his everlasting love 

until the pangs of isolation 

have faded,

and you have 

strength to stand again. 

Call to him to come to your side when the pit seems too dark 

and your heart is too burdened. 

He will NEVER leave you. 

You are NEVER alone. 

Though people like me will fail you, HE never will.

All My Love,


He reached down from heaven and rescued me; he drew me out of deep waters. 
He rescued me from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me and were too strong for me. 
They attacked me at a moment when I was in distress, but the Lord supported me. 
He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me. Psalm 18:16-19


  1. Beautiful. True love and a direct reflection of God's love for us.
