I love my daughter Bailey. I am so proud of who she is, and who she’ll become. You see….I can boast about this beautiful girl because none of the credit goes to me. When I look at her, I see everything good thing, made by the hand of our Almighty God!
Bailey is musical and loves photography. The girl who people think should be in front of the camera, stands humbly behind it. She has recently become passionate about photographing concerts. At the young age, of almost 15, she steps out in faith and contacts press managers of her fave boy bands and artists. Depending on God to open the right doors to the concert He wants her to shoot. Last night, she got more than she imagined at the Tyler Ward concert in Austin, TX. She was there to shoot his show, but was blessed beyond measure.
Girls try to look beautiful. If they only knew to wash off the makeup, put some clothes on that cover private parts, and let the light shine from within. You can BE beautiful without even trying. Bailey doesn’t know she’s beautiful. Take that and her walking around filled with the Holy Spirit…she’s scary beautiful. Guys her age just stare at her. They don’t have the time spent on earth to have achieved a successful relationship, so they don’t even approach. If they do approach, they find out rather quickly she’s very mature for her age, and they walk away. Guys age 18 to 25 stare at her too! They are trying to gauge if she’s 16 or 18, and sometimes approach. Bailey knows once they find out her age, they don’t walk, they run.
The post above is one of her fave sayings. Another one she lives by is from Max Lucado. “A woman’s heart should be so hidden in God, that a man has to seek Him, to find her.” With a literal handful of really true friends, she goes about her day seeking God and His plan for her life. The stares have started to take a toll on her this year. Little Miss Scary Beautiful cannot fathom why people won’t approach her, or even be kind. Then God sends someone with wisdom, right when she needs it, to pour it on her.
Someone reached his arm around her last night at the concert and said, “You are so beautiful! You are just so beautiful! Now…you wanna selfie?” She stood there, mouth hanging open in utter disbelief! It was Tyler Ward saying this to her. The look on her face in those selfies are priceless. She will never forget that moment. God sent someone over to grab her and tell her what He knew all along.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Thank you God.
