The ten girls who spent the night started attending Beautiful Me with their mothers in October 2016. Friday night we had our finale, ending with a talent show, a showing of "One Night With the King," and a lot of giggling as they tried hard to keep each other awake late into the night.
As we end Beautiful Me with this group, a program intended to bring mothers and daughters closer, I had hoped that the mothers would attend this optional talent show, but only one "mother" (actually a grandmother) came. And oh, that one mother blesses me so. (See post She came to Beautiful Me )
Please, be sheltering trees for these girls now, as you read. Pray, pray that God will instill in them a desire to be His, that their mothers will learn to treasure them and hold them gently while training them to be strong. May these acorns become a "planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor" in this land. (Isaiah 61:3)
