Kids will stop by her and read it – some will remark – others walk away. But none have made fun of her.
Today a girl came running up to Jessica when she got to school and hugged her. The girl then told her, “I thought you should know, I am gay.” Jessica then said, “Oh”, and proceeded to put her books together. The girl asked her if they could still be friends. Jessica said, “Of course, you are my friend.” The girl told her she did not think Jessica would be her friend to gay girls . . . and then told her she was just testing her – that she was not gay. The girl then told several other girls in a group later that Jessica was hanging around with. The girls were surprised and even questioned her on it. She was brave and told them that they are friends with her and know she is a Christian and let her tell them about her beliefs and they do not abandon her, and she won’t them.
Yes, it’s a proud mama moment – but I think even more so, Jesus is smiling down at His brave child who shines for Him without hesitation.
