Sooooooo the other day I was at Fry's getting out of my car, when I heard a couple talking to each other about a car. They were like, OH look at THAT CAR, that's a beautiful car!!! And in my head I thought, who cares about some fancy shmancy car!!! I LOOOOOVE MY CAR!!! I love my Honda Element! I don't care if it's not the latest, greatest, thing!!! It's high off the ground, but compact and it has THE COLDEST AC annnnd it's really cute and reliable!!!! Sooooooo what if it has some scrapes and a dent on the bumper!!!! Those things just give it character!!!! It's THE BEST car I've everrrrr owned and I LOOOOOOOOVE my
Orange Blossom Orange Crush, scrapes, bumps, DENTS AND ALL!!!
Weeeeeeeellll when the couple saw me as they walked by they stopped said, OH we were just talking about your car, it's a BEAUTY!!! I was liiiiiiiiiiiiike... OH THAAAAAAANK YOU!!!! They were like, yeah we love Honda Elements, we used to have one and really miss it!!! I was like, Oh totally agree!!! This is my favorite car i've ever owned!
And we parted ways smiling!
Annnnnnd I thought, that must be what it's like to see through the eyes of love. When you love someone, you don't stay focused on all their flaws and imperfections. Yeah, you know they're there, buuuuuut you LOVE them!!!
God sees us through the eyes of love So often we compare ourselves to others. We want to be like them! (ok just to be really honest, I don't struggle with this a WHOLE LOT....buuuuuut occasionally...every ONCE IN A BLUE MOON!!!;) If only I was more like this or like so and so! Buuuuuuut God sees us the way I saw my car and was defending it in my head. He hears us or knows what we're thinking inside and he's LIKE, whaaaaaat??? That's MY GIRL and I think she is AWESOME!!! She's just the best thing everrrrrr. That's MY CHILD!!! I took EXTRA time to make him the way he is.
God's LIKE, no I'm NOT talking about someone else, THAT'S YOU I'M TALKING ABOUT!!!! You don't need to try and be like someone else!!! Bumps, scratches, imperfections, flaws and all,
GOD THINKS YOUR AMAZING!!!
