Feeling Special

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27

While doing my motherly duties as a nail trimmer the other night, I remarked to my 7YO: “You have the dirtiest toenails in the world!” He said, “Maybe that’s what makes me so special.”

So what makes you special?

I know that I’m tall and have a sense of humor. I have freckles on my nose that I’ve passed along to my children. I’m as uncoordinated as a giraffe on ice, but I can kick a soccer ball higher and further than my husband. I’m fearless in the face of bugs and I’ve sent several snakes to their graves, but I can’t breathe in total darkness. I understand when my horse tries to tell me something. There is very little that I cannot accomplish with packing tape, material or paper. My children think I’m the “best cooker in the world.” You never have to guess what I am thinking.

There are lots of things that make us who we are. Some we enjoy. Others we could live without. But the fact is we are us for a reason. So what if you’re too loud? So what if you can’t always find the right words? So what if you have dirty toenails? There is something about you that makes you special to someone. Maybe that someone is your kids. Maybe it’s your husband. Maybe it’s your best friend. Or maybe it’s just God.

Hope you’re feeling special today!

“He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.” Deuteronomy 32:4
