she was prayed for before she was ever conceived. i prayed for a girl. she was the fifth. i prayed for my heart:)
i heard a muffled talking the other day. i crept up to the door and listened. smiled. she's doing a tutorial. on makeup application! and it got me to thinking.
she came forth sparkling i swear. always smiling and eyes that sparkle. she has loved fashion and makeup and hair since i can remember.
she doesn't care to do what everyone else is doing or wear what everyone else is wearing. i love that about her. a lot
in fact - i encourage that in her. i didn't with my oldest kids who are now grown. i was much older when i had grace.
my heart for her is that she will learn that her journey is where she will become strong her strength is from God not within herself. that she waits for a man that will love her heart, her mind and dream her dreams as well as his own one that will respect her true love waits ring because he too is waiting that she explores her God given dreams with no pressure to marry before her time that she opens her heart to God's invitation to be transformed by Him in her reality..
that she stands when no one else does that she speaks for those who cannot that she be the light when everything else is dark that she has the eyes to see the lovely in the unlovely for that is so often where we see God that she lives loved .. because she knows she is loved by God the she hears His song over her each and everyday
that she is able to forgive because she knows the depth of her forgiveness that family always matters the keeps she keeps God first, others second and herself third that her trust is always safe with God that even if she had no one she is not ever alone because God is always with her.
that she has a heavenly Father who gives good gifts to His children and the gifts He has given her have been hand chosen for a purpose and that she is able to see them and i - her momma - will be able to see them and with each day encourage them and not squash them..even when they are not "like me"
and that i remember that she is created and knitted together not to be another me but to be her oh...and her future husband have enough money to support her clothes and makeup amen
disclaminer:) - her video is like 20 minutes so i shortened it to 14 minutes! i thought the video sweet and smiled so i told her if she can cut them down that i would love to have her on the blog twice a month or so to talk about fashion and makeup etc. for tweens
and she smiled. big.
