just right

since we have been going out more and more these days, we get more and more 'comments' these days.  'she is so small, she is teeny, wow 7 months'.  being the prepared, ready type, i feel like i need to prepare this whole speech or disclaimer to explain her whole situation.  should i?  what is the best way to show His love through all of this?  something to think and pray on.

when i got home tonight from the 'she's so small' comments i told ella that she was just right.  i want her to know that she was made just right.  
'i will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well.'  psalm 149:13  

 as i texted my husband about the interaction and my frustrations, he reminded me that 'we need to remember to be the good, positive voices for them. cause not many otherwise are.'  again, i'm reminded that as we live out life we really need to be the good, positive voices.

if we choose, we can live out a life that God has made for us......a fulfilling one.  YOU are all made juuuuust right!  you are made just the way God wanted you to be.  you have so many talents that He has bestowed on you to use for His kingdom.  use your talents, failures, strengths, weaknesses, LIFE to glorify Him.  this is what we are called to do.  i mean after all, He has given all that is good.  He gave His only Son!  the very thought of giving my flesh and blood for others gives me the true sense of sacrifice.  the only response that makes sense is to give back ALL that i have......what is your response?

i pray and pray for what my children will respond with......

for they have been fearfully and wonderfully made.
