Friday, March 4

When I look in the mirror,

I see...


a girl who works too hard to please others, not hard enough to please her God
a girl who hates conflict and disagreement
a girl who did not expect to have 4 kids in 4 1/2 years and while she loves them all, sometimes she wishes for the grass on the other side of the fence.
a girl who still doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up...a mom, a secretary, a successful cardmaker/seller, a perfect wife, a true friend, none of the above, all of the above
a girl who somedays has forgotten how to laugh, but then remembers that she has four kids that remind and teach her... if she will let them.
a girl who hates house cleaning
a girl who loves baking
a girl who enjoys cooking, but not with 4 little bodies underfoot
a girl who loves to create cards that make her smile
a girl who so desperately wants to be accepted for who she is.
a girl (am I still a girl???)

Who I really am...
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

  1. I so agree with the housecleaning. I despise it! So beautifully written for this Friday morning.

  2. You are very hard on yourself!
    Remember that you are a wonderful wife, mother, sister, friend, cardmaker, etc!
    Celebrate who you are!
    I love you!

  3. Love that - it doesn't matter what we see when we look at ourselves, what matters is how God sees us. And he sees us as his precious children, a wondrous work of grace and love!

  4. i love that verse. we are his, made by an Artist and valuable. such a good reminder, especially as we consider beauty which fades and a purpose which does not.

  5. You are beautiful Julie! I love what you see when you look in the mirror!

  6. It's the laundry that gets to me. And yes, when doe we stop thinking of ourselves as girls? Maybe never - maybe we are always girls in the twirly, daisy chained centers of our hearts.

    Thanks for linking up!

  7. Lovely, honest post - thanks so much.

  8. Such a good reminder of the truth today! Thanks for visiting my blog as well!
