Hidden truth is worth seeking....

Girl sixteen.......loneliness chased her until she retreated to a room where she found comfort, with its white walls and lavender trim, a creamy white daybed placed intentionally in front of a wide picture window.  The moon and the stars were her friend along with the fiery pink azaleas that grew just outside that window.  The fragrance of Georgia pines dripping with dew in the morning, floated softly in threw the crack she left open the nights before.
     Thoughts, feelings were kept locked up inside until she was safe within those four walls, where Jesus waited for her to listen to it all.  It was there that she learned how to sit at His feet and empty herself out.  She didn't really want to die, she just wanted things to be different.  She didn't want to be the outsider looking in anymore.  
     There was nothing special about her, nothing she was really good at, nothing to make her stand out and fit in, so she thought.  She had no dreams, no plans for the future that were within her reach, she believed.  She loved God.  She loved people.  Just one look at her room or the sound of her stereo would easily clue you into this.  She would continue loving God and finding ways to serve His people and would just see where that got her.

Girl seventeen......to be continued.
