Right Before My Eyes

I watch her
in awe and wonder
of such a beautiful creation
by her Creator.

She's growing
becoming a young woman.

It can be as simple as the way she flips her hair
or grown up words that fall easily from her mouth.
Sometimes a quiet request for privacy
and I wonder if she feels it too.

And then just as quickly she is a little girl again.
And so it will continue
the eb and flow
of being and becoming
who God has created her to be.

I smile inside and out watching the work that God is doing in Abby's life. She is growing into a beautiful young lady. I was nervous at first. I felt an odd sense of disconnect with her. I was hesitant, wondering about the way our relationship was going to change. I prayed about it and God led me straight to American Heritage Girls. It's an AMAZING organization full of godly women. It's the perfect vehicle to keep Abby and I connected while she grows into a godly young woman. I highly recommend you seeking out a troop in your area for your daughter.

Hi Maggie! This post was so sweet! I 3 year old daughter... and I can already see her blossoming into "girl-hood".

I'll have to check that out!

So great to meet so many wonderful Christian Women!

I just got an email from my local homeschool group that one of the moms want to start a local chapter of American Heritage Girls. I've already been thinking of checking it out.

I've stopped by from "Mingle Monday" -- glad to meet you! :)
