This is exactly how Jesus sees us... unblemished and perfect.
How does He do that? Why does He do that?
In the past couple of years I've really tried to wrap my mind around this mystery.
How does He love like that?
Even with the enormous amount of love and compassion I feel as your mom,
even with that, I struggle.
I still have that silly preference for a clean face...brushed hair... cute outfit...
This shows that even with one of the strongest loves in the world, it does not compare to His love for us... to His love for you.
This world will desperately try to leave its mark on us, whether its good or bad.
However in its end it will hold no comparison to what will be our new beginning.
We will come to Him as dirty as this world can make us. He will forgive, mead, clean us up, and He will still see us totally unblemished and perfect... as only He can.
We are love by Him~ today this beautiful Sunday and ALWAYS

I don’t have any super powers that allow me to run faster than a locomotive but I have the power to love fully and immensely
I don’t have the skill to read minds but I know how to make one little girls favorite foods by heart
I can’t prevent pain from coming but I have magic kisses that make boo-boos feel better
I don’t have the ability to see through walls but the courage to face the obstacle of daily life
I don’t posses the strength to bend steal with my bare hands but I have the strength to face all the emotions, wonderful and exhausting, that it takes to be a mom
To the world I am not a superhero but to my daughter I am.
At school today, Isabella was able to dress like her favorite superhero ~ she chose me.
I was honored beyond what words can express by the very one that shows me daily that I have talents and strengths that I never knew I possessed.
