A Letter to My Friends' Mother

There are some things I’d like to point out to you, that you seem to be incredibly blind to.

YOUR DAUGHTER IS A FREAKING ROCKSTAR!

She is one of the most... 
Vulnerable
Brave
Diligent
Compassionate
Empathetic
Supportive 
and 
Authentic 
...people I have had the privilege of knowing.

Do you not see it?  
Do you not see how much she has sacrificed so that she can return, fresh and clean, to dwell again with her Savior?  
Do you not see how much shame she has shed and the lengths she has gone through to give up that which has kept her bound?
Do you not see the Light of Christ within her?

Maybe you would see it if you asked her about her journey instead of giving unsolicited advice detailing your perceptions of righteousness.

She does not need you to give advice
...or to fix her 
She needs her mom  
She deserves unconditional love

Your daughter is a warrior princess
She is a fighter
She will not lay down and be consumed 
She is unabashedly doing all that the Lord is asking of her
...and 
Following in His footsteps

I AM SO PROUD OF HER!!

I hope you can be too...

  1. It is hard when you don't feel support from your family. But luckily, we can all repent! ~Stacey

Thank you for sharing a moment with me:-)

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
