here’s to you…

IMG_1320

Here’s to the girl who tucks herself away in the deep corners of neighborhood coffee shops. She travels to bookstores just to sniff the pages when no one is looking. She has a hunger for knowledge that may never be quenched. She’s the girl with the snow-white skin and auburn locks. She’s the girl who is constantly drinking tea while lost in her own mental galaxy. Here’s to you sweet daughter of the King. You have a story. It’s time to start telling it. //Isaiah 55:11//

Here’s to the girl who never thought she had a voice…

Here’s to the woman who finally found it.

Here’s to the girl who looked in the mirror and searched…

Here’s to the woman who peered in and saw it.

Here’s to the girl who fought for the words to say…

Here’s to the woman whose words paved her way.

Here’s to the girl who felt lost amongst the faces…

Here’s to the woman who found love and happiness in all the small places.

Here’s to the girl that thought her worth was found in beauty…

Here to the woman who set her feet firm on her spiritual unity.

Here’s to the girl who craved adventure in every way…

Here’s to the woman who realized, she was apart of one every day.

Here’s to the girl who looked for acceptance in the arms of the man…

Here’s to the woman who let her God romance her only as a Creator can.

Here’s to the girl who camouflaged her sorrow with fake smiles…

Here’s to the woman whose joy illuminates her, even through her trials.

Here’s to the girl whose heart was captured by the dark…

Here’s to the woman who overcame and found her spark.

Here’s to the girl who peered across the room and wondered why…

Here’s to the woman who realized her expectations would always leave her bone dry.

Here’s to the girl who struggled to find what to be…

Here’s to the woman who said, “Greater is He that lives in Me”.

    Love this poem, Lauren. What a joy to see how far God has carried us in the journey from girl to woman. To Him goes all the glory!
