This is the word I use to describe my five year old daughter.
Her life has been full of many things already.
Anyone who knows her well, knows her heart. And it is amazing. It has been through so much and yet screams love and hope to a broken world.
She has become our joy when times all we had was tears and loss.
She is a tiny Asian princess and yet has the faith and love of a giant.
Fear and anxiety fills her heart at times still. And we all pray and can see God filling her heart with faith, hope, and love once again.
Movies, change, and noise overwhelm her still. And yet when she is ready we will watch a movie in complete silence. And this is huge. And it may take weeks to move the volume even to a whisper. But she does it and we celebrate because she is tackling another mountain.
School was extremely hard for her at first. But she has braved everyday and has had Scriptures in her heart and mind, resting safely in His palms.
And today she won an award for outstanding effort, always trying and succeeding in her work. And this is huge.
She prays at times I don't even think too. She knows the One to go too and that He is for us.
Her Chinese name means "good news" and oh my how she lives up to that meaning.
And she is indeed courageous.
