After telling my daughters before they leave for school in the mornings, “As long as you have breath, you have purpose! Make sure you see everyone in a given room, and do something kind today!”, my words have become a running joke in my home. With that being said, my husband, JR, will say, “You have purpose!” as one of the girls go into the school building, in attempt to embarrass them. The girls will randomly say to one another, “You have purpose!” as they giggle.
Little do they know the truth and life they are speaking into one another, even if it’s said to mock their ‘picked on’ momma!
The truth is everyone has a purpose! Many of you know JR is not only a retired Army Chief, but He is a ball player. He was in a tournament this weekend, so last night the girls and I drove up for his evening game. We sat right beside the dugout and I watched Savannah wave at everyone on deck!
She continuously yelled “da-dahhhh!” while waving her little hand with pride and excitement. At three years of age, this little girl has purpose! She waves at anyone passing her in any given place whether it’s a grocery store or ball field. She is one who sees everyone in a given room. She has a tender, kind spirit and sees others with a non discriminatory love. She is an encourager and sees everyone equally... except for daddy yesterday.... he was a step above the others!
Thank you Savannah for continuously revealing what my own purpose is and what it should be.
