Sometimes Cutie Cakes looks up at me
and i catch my breath
her eyes are just unreal!
when I was little,
I used to pray my eyes would turn blue like the twin's
then we read a missionary story about Amy Carmichael
she quickly became my favorite missionary
(do kids have such things?!)
because she used to pray that her eyes would change color, too
she knew God could answer her prayers. She believed He could
but He didn't.
Years later, as a missionary in India,
she realized God answered her prayer with a "no"
in order to blend in and not stick out
as a woman
who just happened to be a missionary
it was imperative that she look the part
all the way down to her brown eyes
all that to say,
it seems 2 of my girls received the stunning blue eyes
i prayed for long ago
