You-Ness

After rocking my sweet girl to sleep this morning while thinking through the many differences between her and her brother, I sat down with a giant cup of coffee and jotted my monthly letter to her. When I finished, these excerpted words seemed to be quite fitting for my soul.

Oh Evie Rae,

…If there is one thing that I want for you, besides salvation, it’s for you to learn early to accept who you are and how God has wired and made you. It’s so easy to compare yourself to others and wish you had someone else’s _____, but you have been given _____ for a reason and by a God who thought that _____ was the best for you. He didn’t make a mistake when He gave you _____, and He will continue to grow you as you embrace _____ . You have been fearfully and wonderfully made, and there was no “oops” when He gave you _____. Hooray for YOU, Evie Rae! Accept your YOU-NESS! You are a perfectly crafted, one-of-a-kind, simply unique, lovely soul who was never intended to be anything but YOU, so hold tightly to Him as you learn to accept _____…
