Today I am joining Lisa Jo-Baker and many others for Five Minute Friday. I will be writing for five minutes flat - no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking. Today's word is: Beautiful
As I sit on the carpet of my daughters' room I look over and see two beautiful girls. I am in awe. One on the lap top punching keys playing a game. The other fixing her hair so that it looks just right...
Only a week into summer and their skin glows bronze, unlike this mamma. Their eyes sparkle. Their hair, kissed by the sun, in just the right places, highlights a grown girl would spend a fortune for. One a Shirley Temple crown, the other with length that waves.
It's not just their appearance that is beautiful.
They are wonderful girls, with sweet spirits in their own way. Each very different . So thoughtful, so loving. Where have the years gone?
I recognize the grace given to me, that allows me to nuture such beautiful spirits.
Dear Lord, I pray that you would give me the strength and wisdom I need to raise these girls. Help me to encourage them in all that you have created them to be. May they love and honor you all the days of their lives.
