I choose to respect you despite our differences.
I choose to embrace you no matter how far I watch you fall.
I choose to acknowledge that your sins are no greater or less than mine. Our sins are our sins.
I choose to say that while I do not say our sins are good, I know you are ultimately good.
I choose to cry out in love when I am around you, and to show you that you are a precious child of God's.
I choose to set aside my initial quick judgments to put on His love.

I choose to say that you are worthy of the perfection of the Father.
I choose to say that I am worthy of His love as well.
I choose to give you my empathy, my compassion when you enter on hard times.
I choose to fight through those times with you.
I choose to laugh when you laugh and cry when you cry.
I choose to remind you that you are an incredibly made image of the perfect God.
I choose to lay down my struggles at the feet of the Father so as to put on the armor of love.
I choose to say that We are all His.
I choose Him as my light.
He is the sunset colliding with our humanity. Creating perfection within our souls. A place for Him to dwell and to rest and to reflect and to shine.
I choose to give Him that place. I choose to look for the sunsets with which He meets me. I choose to let Him make me shine.
In between tweeting, reading books to my daughters, and [not] burning mac n cheese, I am the Founder + Creative Director of Blessed is She women's ministry + community.
