Perhaps for this day...


Perhaps it was for this day....that you were such a girly girl, playing with headbands and barretts and dress up shoes

Perhaps it was for this day...you let your rebellion be known in a Spanish class, telling us you weren't planning on college anyway


Perhaps it was for this day...you have always been drawn to small suffering bald headed children


Perhaps it was for this day...you had to deal with people's raised eyebrows when you chose going to beauty school instead of college


Perhaps it was for this day...you drove 3 hours every day to Santa Monica to cosmetology school


Perhaps is was for this day...you met a young man who took you to a church called Reality where you would meet this child


Perhaps it was for this day...you unexpectedly became a young family drawing you into relationship with these other young families, one who had this child


Perhaps it was for this day...that your own pain has tendered your heart into one so sensitive to His leading


Perhaps it is for this day...you have been born....to serve another....with courage and tenderness...to serve this child

Perhaps on this day, all that has come before, makes some sense and brings worth and hints of a higher plan by a Higher Planner, for this child.


Perhaps for this day...

Some one reminded me once, as you have today, that no matter if I feel what my daughters are going through these past few years is "fair" or not....it is GOD's plan that they go through it. What they experience as children (whether a sickness in their body, like Daisy...or in their mommy's body, like mine) this is something that God is using in THEIR life...they said to me (5 yrs ago) they are walking in CHRIST now!! God's plan goes way past this year and affects decades to come, even through your children! Your words on this blog are beautiful. Perhaps it was for this?
