Just Me

I am not a perfect person. My body and my heart are full of scars and bruises which I have collected during my journey thru life. I am not always politically correct and I often insert my foot into my mouth stumbling over the words I am trying to put together to relay a thought. I find it necessary to say I am sorry a lot and I imagine there are many more times when I should say it but don't. I am not pretty by worldly standards and even when I was a young girl I never had a good figure. I have worked so hard for so many years to hide my feelings from people that I am now often judged for what I seem to be rather than who I really am.

But my heart is good and kind and full of love. I have a generous spirit and a tender heart towards both people and animals. My soul is beautiful and deep and to know me as I truly am, you need only to look within my eyes and you will see the true me. I am a child of God and He thinks I am perfect as I am because He created me to be who I am. He has healed all my scars and bruises that I acquired when I veered off the path which He was leading me I and ventured into life on my own. During those moments, He was never far away and whenever I was in danger, scared and frightened He answered the moment I called for Him.

So no, I am not perfect yet, but I end each day further along in my journey to being a better person. One day when I leave this earth I will be perfect. I will cry no more and I will bear none of the scars from this world. Until that day, I ask you to see me as God does and love me warts and all.

Until we meet here again, I pray God bless you and keep your loved ones safe.
