Today, I want to share something simple yet very powerful with you. This simple and sweet poem hung on the wall in our house when I was growing up and now hangs on the wall beside my desk.
Why God Made Little Girls
God made the world with its towering trees
Majestic mountains and restless seas
Then paused and said, “It needs one more thing…
Someone to laugh and dance and sing
To walk in the woods and gather flowers
To commune with nature in quiet hours.”
So God made little girls
With laughing eyes and bouncing curls
With joyful hearts and infectious smiles
Enchanting ways and feminine wiles,
And when He’d completed the task He’d
He was pleased and proud of the job
For the world, when seen through a little
Greatly resembles Paradise.

We don’t stay little girls forever but that doesn’t change the reasons that God made us. Even though I’m not a little girl anymore and haven’t been one for a while, I still read this poem to myself every day just as a reminder.
