One Of A Kind

She is a tiny thing. Her small face is framed in blonde and purple bangs that sweep low across her pretty face. She wears a blue knit beanie that sits properly slopped upon her head. She wears black leggings and a long flannel plaid shirt made up of blues and greens. Her shoes are brightly colored while her petite shape is covered in a well worn black leather biker jacket. Her skin is slightly ashen and her eyes are dull. She so desperately wants to be happy. She is dying to belong. Anywhere.

When she spoke, she was nervous but committed to express her feelings. It was then that my heart could never forget her. “When I walked into Reaching Higher you welcomed me. I was never welcomed like that before. Anywhere.”

One hug. One smile. One heart that needs to be reminded how special they are on this earth. Thank you Lord for welcoming me. It’s because of your warm welcome to me I can welcome the Hers of this world. Please give me more young people to remind, that they are loved, purposed and planned. Thank you my Lord. Thank you for loving me first.
