A letter to Brave.

Bravery Amor,

Today, you turn two, and although you won’t remember this day, may these words hang in the air until you can grasp them, until your tiny hands turn into delicate feminine ones, until your little Spirit learns to sing songs of Love yet to be written.

You were always meant to be here. You were made for this time, and though your name echos the sound of your story, there is more to it then you know. He has a destiny for you to mark every soul you ever encounter and every hand you hold.  It’s in those moments  you share the very nature of who you are: Brave.

You can glean from the ceiling of purpose your mother knew was for you.
Let her ceiling be your floor.
You can draw from her strength because your story is as much about her as it is about you. And people will ask, baby girl, they will ask why your name is what it is, and why you are the way that you are; Unique, Set apart, A carrier of God’s glory.

You can tell them.
You can tell them your story and watch in amazement as God shifts their heart’s to His just because your profound name matches your Spirit.

Everyone who has ever known you, has left completely changed by you. You changed an entire family before you even took a breath. And that my love, is part of your destiny.

Never let anyone take any of that beauty from you, for it’s in that beauty, truth is told without saying much. Hearts are healed from His touch on your life, and your purpose unfolds right in front of people’s eyes. I’ve seen it happen, and each time it does, I celebrate His goodness.

Even though you are two, you have already changed people. You began changing people from the moment God set you in your mother’s womb, from the moment He began to form your tiny little face, and you glorious Spirit. He took parts of Himself and set them inside of you. So when you dance, when you sing, when you are a passionate wild little thing, when people watch you in amazement, I know why. He fashion you to be Loved, and you always were, right from the beginning.

You were made to be fearless because Love casts out fear. You were always made for greatness because He made you with plans in mind for you. You were always made to touch the world in a way that no one else can because He sings a new song over you each and everyday.

I love you, like you are my own. You have a part of my heart I never want back, and you’ve always had it, from the beginning.

I love you, now and always.

Love Always,
Aunt JuJu

PS. You always know where to find the cupcakes 😉
