Thank you for joining me this month for the celebration of
i AM complete

as the month comes to a close, i want to remember:

no man, woman or child is needed to make me whole

no romantic comedy, or fairy tale, paints the real picture for me

i do not need to be rescued for a happily ever after

real love is kind, sincere, patient, never resents, and always apologizes

the roles i have in my life, no matter how well i do them, do not complete me

and God love me more than i can imagine, no matter what i do

i don’t need to be anything different
i don’t need to have anything different
i don’t need to do anything differently

because of God’s grace
i am a beautiful image of Him
just as i am.

i rest
and know
i am complete.

all that I experience
all that I do
all that I have been through
creates who I am

God knows
each event in my life
each experience I have
each moment I live

and all of it
is what helps me
be who I am
and know who He is

I am exactly who
who I was created to be
who I need to be
in this moment

Happily ever after
doesn’t look like the movies
doesn’t look like the fairy tales

Happily ever after
is not being swept off my feet
without a care in the world
my every need met
without speaking a word

Happily ever after
is when I express my needs
not expecting others to guess them

Happily ever after
is when we both put in
the time
the communication
the thoughtfulness
the work

But mostly

Happily ever after
is what I choose to make it
because I’m in charge
of my own story.

Thank you God
for loving me
in a way I can barely comprehend

Thank you God
for showing me
what love can truly be

Thank you God
for holding my hand
in times of sorrow or stress

Thank you God
for sharing my joy
in times of happiness and cheer

Thank you God
for loving
with unconditional

How do we know if the love is real?  We are cherished for who we are.

Thank you, mama
for knowing what love should look like
for giving it with all your heart
for believing you deserve it in return

Ok, a little reality check.
Love is amazing.
Love comes in all forms.
To feel love in some form is a necessity in our lives.

But love is not all we need.

And when we start thinking this way
we are in for big disappointment.

A possible song title:
“Communication, patience, understanding, compassion,
humor, practicality, a sense of responsibility,
and the knowledge that no one is going to
perfectly meet all my needs…
is all you need”

I don’t think that would have made the Top 40.

Am I kind to myself?

Or am I harsh with the words I repeat in my head?

Am I critical of me?

Or can I be gentle when I fail?


Being able to love myself for who I am starts with kindness to myself

I have a pretty good imagination

I can make up stories
about far away places
fairies and goblins
heroes and damsels

I can make up stories
that are closer to home
about what you are thinking
who you think you are
why you did what you did

But none of my stories
can touch
the wonder
the amazing story
about the depth
of God’s love

Thank you, Lord
for not being limited
to my imagination

Can you love yourself for just who you are?

What does love
feel like,
look like,
sound like
to you?

The answer will be so different for each of us…

I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section!
