a girl

Let me tell you about a little girl. A little girl who knows more of bravery and strength at the age of two then I will at 72. Her giggle is contagious, her big brother is her idol, and her hugs touch your soul. I am blessed to call her mine.

While I have never doubted my God in His plan for her, for us, I have certainly questioned Him. One day I was questioning with hands folded and a heavy heart. This song played.

Beautiful girl, your days are more difficult then those of others' but do not forget that there will be a day in eternity where these years will have been just a moment. There will be a day where you will walk free of this, whether on this earth or at the feet of the Lord. That is the blessed assurance of our God. That is what this momma needed to hear.

Today you sat upon my lap while as we read of Jesus healing the Blind Beggar. You did not see me weep as I read to you: "This happened so that God's work could be shown in his life" John 9:3. Daughter, nearly 2 years into this journey and you have touched countless lives. You my dear, are fearfully and wonderfully made.
