Five Minute Friday

Today's word: She

She is not confident, she is not a superstar, she is not athletic, she is not wealthy, she is not calm and collected, she is nothing 'special', she does not have it all figured out and she is not, under any circumstances, perfect.

She is a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, an aunt, a niece, and a friend.

She struggles to find exactly who she is supposed to be, what her purpose is, how she can make a difference.

She is opinionated, conservative, Catholic, loud, and stubborn.

She can't sew well, she cooks ok.  She isn't a house keeper, she is a stay at home mom. She isn't prim and proper, she is stubborn.

What ever else she is or is not she is a Child of God and He loves her. He does have a plan for her. She tries to remember, even on the bad days, to have that attitude first. It does not work, because she is a sinner. She confesses, she repents, she tries again, and she fails again. And God loves her anyway. She is so wrong sometimes, and God loves her anyway. She is mean sometimes, and God loves her anyway. She sins, a lot, and God loves her anyway. She is defiant sometimes, and God loves her anyway. She is weak, most of the time, and God loves her anyway.

She is grateful that He loves her unconditionally. She is grateful for all He has given her.

    Oh, God is the best parent ever! He does not rescue us from our wrong choices or rebellion, but He allows us to land in the pigpen with the pigs to remember just how much He loves us and to willingly go home! Then He runs down the road to meet us and doesn't care one bit about an apology!
