For the past four or five days she can be heard saying this over and over. She says it to everyone: the little sister, the Momma and the Daddy, the dog, various friends, whoever happens to be around. It goes like this…
“Mommy, you’re wonderful!”
Melt. My. Heart!
Why don’t I do that? Why don’t I walk around telling people how wonderful they are?
So here it is…
You, dear friend, you the one who is reading this right now – yes you! You are WONDERFUL!
One of my favorite Psalms is Psalm 139. [Seriously, check out that whole chapter. Good stuff.] Verse 14 says, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful I know that full well.” [emphasis mine]
You are wonderful. But don’t take my word for it. Take the word of your Heavenly Father. The One who knit you together. The One who knows you better than you know yourself. [Even those things you wish no one knew.] The One who created you. And He says that the things He creates are wonderful. [See also Genesis 1]
So whatever you face today, whatever you’re going through, remember the words of a beautiful 2 year old, “You’re wonderful!”
And maybe pass the message along to someone else who needs to hear it.
