Today is international girls day. So to celebrate I wanted to share a few photos.
This one is my bright baby. She brought such life and color into our world. Passion and energy and beauty. She’s loud - my mama told her it’s a good thing. Cause someday she’ll have a voice. This I pray for all of you. Care. See. Love. Live out loud.
This is my big girl. My thoughtful, brave, kind and creative soul. She has ideas this one. And the guts to try them. High pain tolerance and compassion to match. She teaches me to give it a shot and be interested in oh so many things. I pray for her like I pray for you to care about the world and to know you have the power to make a difference. God gave you that gift.
This is my daughter and her friend. The girls she has know her own life are like extra kids who have grown to be mine. Some carry burdens too large for their shoulders. I hope these girls know our house is a safe place to come. That I will drop everything if one of them calls. Second mamas and aunties matter. I pray they learn quickly about God who loves them. I pray you do too.
I pray for this one too. And her sisters and her country. I pray that she will have opportunities and a future. I pray she will also have a voice and a compassion for her neighbors. Her language and skin are different than mine. I don’t claim to understand her culture or experience. But I love her and I know that translates. I pray you know Love works too.
I love Jesus. I think my two daughters can change the world. I think you can too.
