This Is Love

Let this be the day that joy takes the place Of all of the years that shame tried to steal away

Ahh... young love! You might remember what that feels like to fall in love with someone and feel showered with romantic gestures.

Dara MacLean is sharing the beautiful things her new husband does for her on Facebook.

Today she posted this picture of her looking in the mirror. Her husband had written all these attributes about her on the mirror with arrows pointing to the middle where she was standing.

Instead of waking up in the morning and noticing what's wrong she saw how she is loved. This made me wish every woman, every human being, could wake up to this.

That’s the way God looks at you every morning. We wake up and look in the mirror and notice our faults. Tired eyes, grey hairs, past mistakes. But, He sees his artwork. He is our creator, our designer, and His creations are perfect.

"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!" -Psalm 139:13-14

If you also believe that His son, Jesus, died for your sins, He sees you as blameless too. The shame is gone!

"He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west." -Psalm 103:12

Whew...
