“I have been praying for more patience and to be more selfless”
E’s not even 16 yet she teaches me. Yesterday we spent hours sharing a table at a local restaurant and caught up on each other’s life. It had been weeks since I had spent real, quality time with her and she was full of updates. The first update she had for me was what she and Jesus were working on – “I have been praying for more patience and to be more selfless”
SERIOUSLY?! what teenage girl says that on their own accord?
It’s amazing to hear E speak about people. Her passion and desire for people to be loved is exquisite. 90% of sticky situations she gets into are because she cares about people to the point that she frequently sacrifices herself and comfort to make sure others experience love. Which is great, most of the time. And it’s a lesson we are learning together.
E is such an encouragement to me without even knowing it. Because each time we sit down and talk she is teaching me.
She’s not perfect. She’s almost 16 :0) but she is well on her way to a beautiful life.
And I am so very thankful that I get the chance to learn from her.
Who teaches you?
