There’s a little girl who studies in a school not so far away from her home. The school will be holding a father-daughter dance in two weeks.
Her teacher asked, “Are you going to attend the dance?”
The little girl answered, “I really wish I could, but my daddy is not around for he is locked in a jail from the outskirts of town.”
Then the little girl wrote a very unusual request to the sheriff of the jail where her dad is in: Dear Mr. Sheriff, would you be willing to put up a dance on Saturday night since my dad can’t attend the dance in our school? My daddy is not around because he is locked in your jail. I really wish I could dance with him. Please, please grant my request.
The sheriff agreed and a dance was held at the prison.
The father is wearing the prison shirt and looked at her little girl, “You look like a princess tonight. May I have this dance?”
They danced the night away. Swayed round and round, they had the father-daughter dance. The father and daughter were both enchanted with the moment that they didn’t even noticed the time.
After the last song, when her daughter already left, the daddy was left broken. He silently prayed: Dear Jesus, my girl needs her dad around and I am locked in this jail. I want to dance with her every Saturday night and I don’t want to let her down. Please, help me turn my life around because my daughter needs her dad around.
