I don't have a sister.
And that's ok.
I've never known any different.
Until God blessed me with 2 daughters.
I pray often for their relationship. That they would have a true friendship. They they would laugh together, walk each other through heartache and be wise counsel for each other.

I'm amazed at the way my baby already emulates her older sister. I'm hopeful I can impart to J what a huge responsibility she has.

Watching these two interact is one of the highlights of my life.

I don't take it lightly and I try not to take it for granted.  
I am also reminded of my responsibility.
To show them what it means to be a woman after God's heart.
I'm grateful to have them entrusted to me.
I am blessed.

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. 
Titus 2:3-5

I have a wonderful older brother {he doesn't read this, but I still feel the need to point out the wonderful part}.

You are doing a wonderful job! Praying for our children is one of the greatest things we can do as parents. :)

No sisters for me, either. And I'm apparently going to be a momma to all boys, since my husband and I are planning to stop after this next kiddo is born. So I guess I'll have to learn and live vicariously through others with girls in the family. :)

What a great responsibility to lead girls toward a Godly life - it will take a lot of prayer and guidance from God!

i dont have sisters either but i hope for the same things you do if i ever have daughters of my own. walking life in the shoes of a woman is difficult but i am certain sisters can ease that trouble.

I am blessed to have 3 sisters, one of them by marriage. I have two sons and a daughter and my girl often wishes she had a sister. It breaks my heart. I often point out to her that her cousin is like her sister and that we are all sisters in Christ...I still think she would like to have one of her very own. I loved your post, thanks for sharing.
