Green Gummies

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.

I told my sister about this story, and she said, "Man, Niels (her husband), would eat all the red ones and leave me all the yucky ones!" I would say you're a lucky gal! But I think Nathaniel is the lucky one ;)

Thanks for you comments! I enjoy reading your posts as well! Actually, I found myself jealous of how creative you are, and wishing I had thought of your ideas for your posts first. lol (if that made sense at all haha)

Enjoy your gummy bears!

Oh man, I've always said the green ones taste like cleaner or dish soap! I still eat, them though... Apparently I have a tolerance for those"flavors"? Weird, but what else is new?
