Lovely delicate strong beauty.
I am thankful for those flowers. They speak to me of God's faithfulness.
After the burn she was ostracized, beaten, spit on, teased, suicidal, even those who loved her didn't know how to help her. Her mother died, her father could not care for her, her grandmother who was her primary life-line, developed cancer. She left the country of her birth, her siblings, and came to a strange land to live with strangers and to undergo many years of surgery.
And God took all of it, and turned it around for good and for beautiful, and He continues to do so.
No matter how devasting the abusive situation, circumstances, physical, sexual, abandonment, hateful words; God is bigger! His Love is powerful; faithful to create something lovely out of the most ugly.
We are more than survivors; we are more than conquerors!
Altered from an innocent state, we cultivate compassion and understanding that may have not grown otherwise.
We are not a result of what life took from us;
We are who Love claims us to be!
Battered and bruised we are more beautiful for our scars.”
