Is it arrogance or even conceit to speak what you know to be truth about yourself? This question was sparked by a thought I had this morning as I pondered yesterday and conversations held in it. When someone values you, I mean TRULY values you, it makes huge difference in your life and in how you view yourself. For someone to truly see your heart, along with your good, your bad, and your ugly, and say "beautiful", is something for which to live! Then, to be made to feel that YOU are enough, YOU are okay just the way you are, and YOU matter, is AMAZING! All we ever want to be is loved as the people we are, never being made to feel any part of our being is inadequate or needs changing. In relationships, you can change the linens; you can change your clothes; and you can definitely change your underwear; BUT you can't change your mate.
Back to my thought. I am solid rock in an ocean of mirages. Swimmers all over, swimming with all their might and life to make it to that which does not exist. With eyes bigger than their hearts and souls, they go on and on, and then out of sight. Few have stopped, placed hands and held on, only to catch breath and move on. Failing to realize that I am the only real thing in this particular stretch of ocean, they continue on, in futile pursuit.
Along comes a beautiful mermaid, who makes me her home. For she knows what's real and what is not. She has been swimming for years to find a home, her home, the place meant for her. She saw the soul of a rock and fell in love. She knows what she wants and needs, and finds it all in me.
Is this not what we ALL want??
HAPPY SATURDAY Y'ALL!!! I LOVE YOU ALL, EACH AND EVERY ONE!!
