She and I took over fifty pictures of those flowers that day. We laughed as people stared at us and the cameras around our necks. We talked about anything and everything. Sharpening each other. Like iron sharpens iron. But what we didn't know, and what we are still learning, is that we are becoming like flowers.
Beautiful, gentle, strong. We are becoming the girls God created us to be. Together.
We are determined to be the girls who are not looked at only through a camera lens, but the girls who are looked at with respectful, interested, honoring eyes.
We want to be the girls who aren't sold for $2.95 instead of their $8.50 original price. Because, you see, Someone has already made a purchase before us. He was the $8.50 that was sold for $2.95. He was and is the One who is teaching us to become like the flower. My question to you, girls, is this: Do you know Him? Are you striving to become the girl He wants and created you to be?
