For Bella's journal~

Isabella, I wish that your life could always be the way it is today. I wish that you could live your life completely flawless. How glorious it would be to go through life with no mistakes, no blemishes, always walking the path that God has prepared for you, never questioning His way. To live a life without regret, oversights, or needing to learn a lesson 'the hard way'.

But there has only been One that has lived His life this way. So regrets, oversights and hard lessons are inevitable. From my own experiences I know that your first heart break is coming, the first venture off God's path is coming. Your first embarrassment and your first real hurts, are coming. And baby girl, these things can be tough. 

With every ounce of my being I long to shield you from any pains. I promise to guide you as much as you will allow, but even I will not be able to protect from every pain~ and there will come a time that my hugs and kisses will no longer be sufficient.

A strong relationship with Jesus will be crucial. I pray that you never take this relationship lightly or regard it as unimportant, for it will be the most vital relationship of your life.  He loves you so much that He gave His life for yours.

Isabella, it is because of this love; His for you and yours for Him, that you will have love and compassion for others. Because of this love you will be able to walk His path and follow His way. And it is because of this love that you will be presented as~ Flawless.
