I've made a decision. I'm giving up on people pleasing - there will be no perfect gift, meal, decorations or children for us this Christmas. "Dittos" of the world unite. Haven't you heard? "Average" is the new awesome. I'm going to be who He made me to be. Everything else is less than who He loves - it's true for me, it's true for you. Rest in a baby in a manger. Maybe together we'll find simplicity is divine.
Much love to you,

Psalm 139:16-For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.

In February of 2006 I wrote beside this verse, "So why do I think others are more valuable than me?" When I start putting others opinions and feelings above my own I try to remember this verse.

God created ME, just as he created everyone else. I didn't just schlump along. I'm not less than anyone else.
