He has always found comfort in his Bible... these words live with him.
And then... the big red heart... He's had love for all... he's never hated anyone (some people might think he has reasons to hate and be angry). And this heart is also representative of the love for his children, and in this case his daughter to meet. The heart is in pieces because has suffered, and it has one of the pieces in green color to simbolize the hope and faith he has never lost. The center of the heart is broken and weak (I even used sand paper to really mistreat this heart so it can show this way).
The girly pink high heel shoe? It's his daughter! Already a woman, and placed in a special frame, standing out from all other elements because for her father, she is the most precious and loved master piece. I used lots of 3D squares and circles to pop up the frames and the shoe. They show the shoe in a different dimension vs the rest of the card elements.

Then the numbers... meaning the father never stopped counting the days for the reunion... they mean time...
The arrows lead to the road the father had always in mind... focused in one and only direction: his goals with his daughter in mind... straight forward, not looking to the past... And the rows are olive green and pink, the colors of both the father and daughter.
There's a dove to represent the Holy Spirit, God's blessings that the father never stopped sending and wishing to his daughter. And also those blessings that never lacked during the whole process.
