Nathaniel sent me a text today. This is what it said:
N: I just bought gummie bears and ate all the green ones for u
H: I love you :)
I hate the green gummy bears. I think they taste like cleaner. Nathaniel gets annoyed at me when I pick around the bears for the ones I like best...but he loves me so he did it for me! You have no idea how happy this made me.
This is what I came home to:
I might be a little spoiled.
The other night he told me, "You are a beautiful person." Unfortunately, this is something I forget a lot -- that despite not liking the green gummy bears,
I am a beautiful person. I suppose that may be the human condition...a constant silent and secret battle of self-denial and doubt. Ashamedly, I fear when I am doubting myself I am doubting the Lord.
And so guess what Heavenly Father did today? He reminded me who I am:
I am glorious. I am eternal...I am a daughter of God.
