Nan

I was looking at my dog, you know, just trying to decide what to do with him and his…stupid, adoring little face, and I realized something…every day, it doesn’t matter if I’ve gained weight or…if my skin is all broken out or…if I can’t stop crying for a week.  Every day he still looks at me exactly the same way, like I am the most beautiful thing he has ever seen.  And I just thought, ‘What if I could see me the way my dog sees me?  What if I could love myself like that?’

Confessions: Personal Moments

The hands that held your sin on the cross hold your heart.
You’re gonna spend years getting this right. You are forgiven. Move on.
Let go.

Father forgive me.
I am so afraid. And so confused. And so unsure. So uncertain of myself. So I’ll be certain of you; that you don’t change.
Please Lord forgive me and help me see grace.
Amen.
