In My Daughter's Eyes...

I had a very important personal meeting the other night to discuss some of the delicate issues that have challenged our family. The spirit was very strong during the meeting and I felt inspired by an acute awareness of my Heavenly Father's love and guidance. Following the meeting, I stepped into my vehicle and turned the key. The car started and immediately a song began to play over the radio. The beautiful peace of the spirit flooded my emotions. Years of worry and concern seemed to dissipate, overcome by an assurance of my Eternal Father's influence. The duration of my drive home was spent weeping... basking in the glow of the moment as the tender lyrics whispered sacred truths to my soul. It was an emotional reflection of everything in my heart. I thank God for the precious moments of inspiration in my life, and the daily reminders of His love... His presence... and His peace.

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes...


  1. How beautiful that you were able to embrace your daughter, rather then ridicule her.

    Would that my mother, had been so enlightened!

    God love you sweetie!

  2. Many, many moons ago, when I was still struggling with my own issues I'd fallen away from God too. Several close friends argued that I needed to open myself up to the Lord again, that my life wasn't all that healthy, and how was I supposed to feel God's touch in my life if I was so closed off.

    I was MUCH younger then, and, well, obnoxiuos at that point. "When God comes down, introduces himself, and proves it to my level of satisfaction, I'll consider it. Until then, I won't call him if he doesn't call me." I was very much into the scientific method, and was expecting some pretty big proofs to the postulate that God actually touched individual lives directly.

    Well, he's always seen something in me I didn't I guess, because I got the entire show, and a gentle thwock in the back of my head (Ala Gibb's from NCIS) kind of thing. Since then I tend to see and hear God's voice in all the little things in my life as well as the big.

    The Swaggert's and Fallwell's of this world claim that only THEY can speak directly to God, but since my awakening I know that God is right there with each and everyone of us if we are just open to his touch in our lives.

    Your powerful testimony here is the kind of stuff more people need to see and hear, because God really is about beauty and love, about our blessing, real and whole, he shares with us when we least expect them, and quite often need them.

    As to Martina, well I'm a big country fan, and I love her music. Understandably this is easily one of my favorite pieces she does, for obvious reasons. I'm so glad it was right there, when you most could appreciate it.

    I love your posts Christina!

  4. I am always inspired when I read your blog. Thank you for lifting me up and keeping me hopeful!

  5. This blog is a place for enlightenment and understanding. It's a place where people can go to hear testimony, open their hearts, and free their minds from traditional thinking on these matters. This blog is a place of unity and love for all people, regardless of their opinions and beliefs. There is, however, one thing that it is not... It is not a place for contentious arguments about diffferences in opinions or insights. It's a blog that is dedicated to those who have walked this path of agony, and the many more who are beginning their journey to enlightenment in discovering the sanctity of the spirit. These discoveries come from experience... and experience results in intimate, personal testimonies of inter-spiritual truths.

    There may be many variables that have influenced people to visit us here... they range from genuine interest in personal growth and understanding of a topic that is not well understood to morbid curiosity and a profound "fear" of the unknown.

May God bless each us with compassion for one another, despite our differences - that we may be ever-reminded of our divine-nature and eternal relationship with one another.

  6. As one who is trying to come to terms with this issue, you have provided me with the language of support. All children are to be protected, nourished, encouraged, supported, and loved. Not just by parents, but by all of humanity. What paths we travel to get there are not important; the goal is acceeptance for all.
