Settling into my own skin,
God has given me the ability
to smile at the person in the mirror,
loving and accepting exactly who I am.
As I look back at who I’ve been
and reflect on how and what I used to see,
my perspective was skewed, dark; I ignored
the signs: the love, the grace, the comfort from the Lamb.
Yet once I opened to His heart within,
I saw with Jesus’ eyes, I became free.
His love allowed me to open the door
to view myself and others through His love, His plan.

I see Him now inside my eyes
His beauty shines from my mirror back to me
As does His character; it is His peace I carry, not mine.
I breathe deeply, fully, accepting His unconditional love.
