They do as we do.

If you’re a mom or dad…

Your little ones are watching, listening, learning.

My daughters are beautiful, and they look just like me. Every once in a while, I catch myself picking apart my looks in the mirror, and then I notice a gorgeous little four-year-old watching me. Confused. She usually asks, “Mommy, what are you doing?”

And then I snap out of it, see her beauty, and say, “Just being silly.”

I turn away from that mirror. Just as I hope she will do. Cause she’s the most beautiful thing in the world. And I know, I know that if I waste too much time disparaging my looks, that one day, one day, God forbid, she will connect the dots.

Truth is, we’re all a work of art. Each second well spent, blood pulsing, hearts pumping, brains thinking, nerve-endings firing, hearts feeling so much, bodies capable of everything.

If I ever doubted the existence of a loving God, all I have to is turn my eyes to my daughters. Heaven help me, but for God to have created such beauty in them, HE MUST BE AMAZING TO BEHOLD.
