walking along

baby girl,

you’re not so little anymore

you don’t always need someone

you start exploring and going off on your own

you start trying to do things that you see the bigger people do

making bricks, digging holes, getting water, but you still love to play

you love to sit quiet and have someone hold you close and make you giggle

you love to sing and dance and jump into a big hole over and over and over

did you know, baby girl, you’re beautiful. absolutely stunning. gorgeous.

did you know, love, that you light up the room with joy.

did you know, child, that you know how to love well

you loved me well and showed me His love

and how He wants us to run to Him

 He wants us to hold His hand

to step out on the water

to dream BIG

to love BIG

to wait

and

see

His

Faithfulness

is like a tree planted by deep waters

and there by the waters we can run to Him to burst into our stories

and even more He longs for us to take Him along on all of our adventures

  1. “/did you know, baby girl, you’re beautiful. absolutely stunning. gorgeous./” My favorite line. That’s the kind of thing that prevents girls from growing up with low self-esteem.
