If I could give these girls one thing,
I'd give them the gift of seeing themselves how I see them.
Such magical explosions of beauty that scream across my heart every time I see them or hear their voice.
They are possible.
They are pure.
They are pure.
They are REAL.
But I'd rather for them to see how Jesus sees them.
They would only be able to respond in radical freedom if that gift was given.
I don't know how I got to this season.
Why I ended up in the world at this hour with the heart I have.
So many things to process, such madness swimming thru my mind.
But one thing I can be so grateful for is this gift.
The gift of these girls and the grace to love them.
I guess I have something to say and they have ears that want to hear.
I heard this song this past weekend.
And I am so in love with the words.
I would sing this to them every night if I could:
Laughter is the only thing that will keep you sane.
This world is dying more and more everyday.
Don't let evil get you down in this madness spinning round and round.
I want you to live forever
underneath the sky so blue.
Some people say faith is a childish game.
Well play on children like it's Christmas day.
Sing me a song,
Sing me a melody
You can sing out loud cause you're a symphony.
Take courage when the road is long.
Don't ever forget that you're never alone.
I want you to live forever.
to be alive for forever.
with me and you and Us.
for forever, for always.
they do exist and we can live there.
never a part.
never those things for forever.
let's live forever.
it can be done.
it must be done.
but the choice is yours.
and I say CHOOSE LIFE.
choose forever Somewhere.
with Us and them and me.
I hope you live forever.
