When Dreams Come True

I had the best day, overflowing with miracles of kindness. First, I got to accompany the pregnant teen I am working with to visit her old school. She was so happy to see teachers and friends she had missed. Then, I told her about the pregnant lady who had just chosen life at the abortion center, and was going to get married because she had been so convicted of the need to follow God's commands. I told her we were going to give this poor young lady a wedding.

"I want to help her!" the teen declared.

It turns out, this teen has the voice of an angel. She sang me a song she wrote yesterday. I listened with goosebumps rising on my arms. At first, her voice was a little tentative, but then, she seemed to forget I was in the car, and sang the absolute most perfect wedding song I have ever heard.

"You're hired," I told her. "We have to run it by the bride, of course, but you are one seriously talented young lady."

"I can do make-up and hair too," the teen told me. "I want to help. Can I help?"

Later, I texted the young bride to be.
"We have a singer, and she also does hair and makeup. We also already have someone willing to make your cake and silk bouquet. What size wedding dress are you so I can keep a look out?"

"Size 6." Though, since she is pregnant, it will need to be flowy, not form fitting. Strapless. White. Anyone have one they want to contribute?

"This is a dream come true," the young mom wrote to me, "I just cannot thank you enough for helping us choose to save our little one. I want to follow God. I just want to hug you right now."

I want to hug her back.

If you want to help plan a wedding or have a potential dress for the bride, please let me know. We could use people in the Charlotte area for food prep for a small reception as well.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
