It was Christmas 2011. I was sitting with my new gifts.
My mom hands me a new gift, a lumpy gift.
I tore it open.
Just a shirt, a pink shirt with black lettering. Right? No.
This shirt changed my life.
Let's jump back a few months before, I'm sitting with my blanket crying. I'm crying because I don't have a sister. Mom sits down with me and I say "I want a sister". Mom and I prayed to God "Lord, please give me a sister to play with." Let's just say this happened for a long time.
Now, back to Christmas.
I start reading the shirt.
"Mom! Am I really going to be a big sister?!"
My mom says "Yes!"
(This goes on for the rest of the day).
The point of this is that God may not come to you and give you what you want right away. And sometimes he says no.
I am so grateful that he said yes to me this time!
Now, my sister is 4 1/2 and so cute! This just shows that praying is powerful.
I love Jesus. I think my two daughters can change the world. I think you can too.
