Proud Mama

My kids make me proud a lot.

Even when they're not really doing anything, I'm still proud.

Proud of just who they are.

I was extremely proud last night to see K Belle playing keys and singing background vocals for worship in the youth service.

I was most proud, not of the fact that she sounded awesome, but of the fact that she's allowing herself and her gifting to be used of the Lord.

It takes guts to get up on a stage and lead people in worship. Especially teenagers. Especially when you are only 13.

But, it was great!

This is the only picture taken from a friend's phone. Boo, Mama for not having a good picture! That would have surely embarrassed her if I'd have broken out a camera.

I pray that she will always use her gift for the Lord and serve Him all the days of her life.

She said she didn't understand why we were so ecstatic over this ... like it was no big deal.

Um ... yes. It was and is a big deal.

And, yes, I am proud.

I have had the pleasure of watching your K-belle for the last two years. She and my baby boy AJ are close to the same age and have been in Crossover together and now Intense! She is an amazing young lady. Her confidence is apparent without being an ego! She is beautiful and truly well spoken. It has been a pleasure to see her evolve and I am just gonna share in your pride!

She is what our world needs! I truly believe that world changers are in our mist and she is certainly one of them!

Thank you for being a wonderful mother and follwoing God's call to raise her as you have!

May God bless her all the days of her life!!!!!!
