Sticks and stones may break your bones but laughs and giggles will never hurt me. Not exactly how the rhymes go but for this blog it fits. Do you remember the last time anyone laughed at you? Yesterday three kids laughed and giggled at my expense while their mother sat oblivious to what was happening. That’s what I get for taking off my hat at work. It was a very hot day. It hurt.
What do you say? What could I do? Nothing. I took a step back to make sure I wasn’t imagining it. Fat chance. Those little boogers were laughing at me. To tell you the truth I was more surprised with mom. Talk about a missed opportunity. After walking away and shedding some private tears I reminded myself how much my Heavenly Father loved me. I called my husband and he washed away the tears with the power of words. He loves me and told me I’m beautiful.
In psalm 139 it saids “O Lord, You have searched me and know me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,”. Even the night shall be light about me; Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You. For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made”
Yes I am wonderfully made. Bald and beautiful. GI Jane tough too.
