All the shame, pain, tears, lessons and blessings was His way of preparing me for this current season of my life. I have not only helped my baby sister but countless other women too. I purposely exploit all of myself so that I can help young girls and women to find their self-worth. And let me be the first to say that I take “NO” credit for it whatsoever.
I was selfish, stubborn, controlling, judgmental and opinionated. In my “mind” I was a “so called” perfectionist and believed that I had to literally do it myself or it would not get done. Lol
(Oh so exhausting by the way)
Oftentimes, it’s so funny looking back at the old me. Truly when I tell you that a lot of the “stuff “ I don’t remember is because Isaiah says to forget the former things and do not dwell on the past and the other is because Christ says that anyone in Him is indeed a new Creature and old things have passed away…hence the “Butterfly!”
Back to my sister and me, although I have 5 sisters, my baby sister and I have many similarities. We are divorced, and both received the gift of Salvation after our marriages ended. We each have 2 kids, a boy and a girl. Although now, she is currently going through some “teenage” drama with her daughter, as I did with mine…way back when. Boy did I need God back then. Only I didn’t know Jesus at that point in my life.
My sister and I are also good money managers, loyal, hardworking, and generous. We’re always putting ourselves last. We are both summer babies (6/27 & 7/14) and we love crab cakes, funnel cakes and brownies. She bakes the best cakes ever!!!!!! Yummy! “Thank GOD for sisters!”
Speaking of God; we both just love him to pieces. Each day we are growing and learning and seeking His will. It is such JOY taking this journey with her. She has lots of questions and with my fervor to become intimate with Him; I’ve been able to help her in many ways. But with every relationship…you have to develop a personal relationship of your own. And she has done just that. When I look at the girl she used to be and the woman she’s becoming, I am so very proud of her. And what I love most is that we have both taken a vow of celibacy as we patiently wait on the Lord to bring the one. Not just “anyone” but the one His hands created especially for us.
I wholeheartedly pray that her prince will come first!
Love for a great day!
I love you Kimberly!
