Day 4 From My Home Front: My Precious Daughter.
Jazlynn Carol. Named after her mommy, Marcie Carol.
Her first few years of life were utterly miserable. More miserable than you can imagine. I can't even bear to type the things that she experienced. Then after being moved from foster home to foster home she remained in a life of being unwanted. unloved. uncared for. She was viewed as a nuisance, a pain, a frustrating person whom nobody wanted. Could they not see how this little precious girl was just wanting attention? That she never was loved or taken care of and desperately needed this?
Now when she cries she is not hit. She is held for as long as she wants. When she does something wrong she is tenderly disciplined instead of hurt. When she is needing attention, she gets it. The Lord has brought this beautiful innocent girl out of a life filled with abuse and has given her a forever home.
We will cherish her. We will love her. We will point her to Christ whom will hopefully one day become to her greatest Treasure. We will explain to her that God has written a beautiful story of her adoption just as he has adopted her mommy and daddy into His kingdom. I don't want to be her Savior. I want to be the one who constantly and continiously points her to the only One who can bring her ultimate pleasure and happiness, Jesus.
