A Prayer

Happy Wednesday!
I don't know about you, but the week is only halfway through and I'm exhausted! Too much going on. :) So, instead of an update... here's a prayer.
I actually had this taped to my mirror for years, and I just stumbled across it again the other day. I beyond love it.
Because I Love Her
I made her... she is different.
She's unique.
With love I formed her in her mother's womb.
I fashioned her with great joy.
I remember, with great pleasure, the day I created her.
I love her smile.
I love her ways.
I love to hear her laugh
And the silly things she says and does.
She brings me great pleasure.
This is how I made her.
I made her pretty and not beautiful
Because I knew her heart
And I knew that she would be vain.
I wanted her to search her heart
And learn that it would be me in her
That would draw friends to her.
I made her in such a way that she would need me.
I made her a little more lonesome than she would like to be
Only because of the need for her to learn and depend on me.
I know her heart.
I know if I had not made her like this
She would go her own chosen way
And forget me... her creator.
I have given her many good and happy things
Because I love her.
Because I love her I have seen her broken heart
And the tears she cried alone.
I have cried with her
And had a broken heart, too.
Many times she has stumbled and fallen alone
Only because she would not hold my hand.
So many lessons she has learned the hard way
Because she would not listen to my voice.
So many times I have watched her go her merry way
Only to watch her return to my arms
Sad and broken.
And now she is mine again
I made her...
And then I bought her...
Because I love her.
I have to reshape and mold her
To renew her to what I had planned for her to be.
It has not been easy for her or for me.
I want her to be conformed to my image
This high goal I have set for her
Because I love her.
I love that poem! Such a wonderful reminder of what God intends for each of us.
Here's to Thursday... one step closer to Friday!
