A beautiful girl graduates
My prayer for her as she graduates is a paraphrase of the first Psalm:
She who chooses to live a significant life
is not going to take her cue
from the indifferent.
Nor will she conform to the crowd
and mouth its prejudices
or dote on the failures of others.
Her ultimate concern is doing what is just and right and loving,
and with justice and love in mind she makes her life choices.
She can be compared to a sturdy tree planted in rich and moist soil.
As the tree yields fruit, so her life manifests blessings for others....
She is beautiful, and she lives a beautiful life
not only for herself, but for those around her
because she walks in the paths God would choose for her.
God, bless our girl, and keep her always close to you!
