Sometimes, you need to step outside,
Get some air and remind yourself
Of who you are and who you want to be.
We all have moments when we need to remember who we are. We need to forget what the world tells us. We need to put aside the labels and names that others have given us. We need to find ourselves, no matter who we are. This beautiful picture is my grand daughter. She knows exactly who she is, in all her pink princess glory. She knows where she has been, and where she is going. She knows that she is a daughter of a Heavenly Father who loves her mightily.
I have spent most of my life learning what this beautiful girl seems to know innately. We are all, each and every one, children of God, and He loves us. He wants us to return to His presence. He wants to bless us. He wants to nurture us. He wants us to return to Him. Sometimes, I get so involved in what I am doing, earning a living, taking care of the kids, running here and there, watching my favorite programs and even blogging, that I forget who I am supposed to be. I forget who He made me to be.
"As daughters of God we are each unique and different in our circumstances and experiences. And yet our part matters—because wematter. Our daily contributions of nurturing, teaching, and caring for others may seem mundane, diminished, difficult, and demeaning at times, and yet as we remember that first line in the Young Women theme—“We are daughters of our Heavenly Father, who loves us”—it will make all the difference in our relationships and our responses".
