Who do I see when I look in the mirror? I know the person that I WANT to see. I want to see a mom to multiple children. I want to be part of the “moms group” that talks about their children together. I can sit and think about all the things that I want to be, but that doesn’t change the fact that I am somebody right now. True, I want to be a mom in a house filled with children. That hasn’t happened, and moping about it won’t help. Rather than dwell on who I am not, perhaps it’s time to ponder who I am now… already.
- I am a baptized child of God.
- I am a forgiven member of the family of Christ.
- I am the daughter of Roger and Laurie.
- I am a sister to Troy and Kirk.
- I am the wife of Jerome.
- I am the mother of Joanna.
- I am an auntie.
- I am a godmother.
- I am a neighbor.
- I am a piano teacher.
- I am a choir director.
- I am a friend.
Dear sisters, we are already precious in the eyes of God. When He looks at us, He sees a dearly loved child. We rejoice in the privilege and honor of sharing that love with those God has given to us. Now it’s your turn – “Who are you?”
