Day 2 in the "Illustrated Faith" ~ "You're Beautiful" devotional.
Psalm 139:15-16
I'm an original. When I was younger I longed to fit in so desperately. I was overweight, frizzy haired, bucked toothed & completely insecure, then in the fifth grade glasses got added to that mess. I wasn't what the "in crowd" wanted. It took many years, an eating disorder & ultimately marriage to a sweet man for me to realize that I was OK to be me. Anyone who has known me for very long knows that I am not a trend follower by nature. I don't like to be like everyone else. I think that developed in me partially out of survival. But also God created me to be an original. And now I embrace it. Sure that little insecure girl is inside me waving her hand from time to time. But she's an original too. And I love her, because she helped create the woman I am today. Come her little Crystal....Let me give you a hug.
