I am in love with Clark Kent. I have an affinity for regular humans who look like him or have his character traits.
I wish I could go swimming right now but the pool closes at 8 pm and doesn’t open until 10 am tomorrow. Lame. I know.
I wish I were braver.
I’d like to be kind and blunt at the same time, and always tell people what I see when I look at them. I don’t mean “I like your shoes” or “He’s so hot.”
But to really say something they need to hear, “Don’t wear dresses that short. You are worth more than that. You are selling yourself short and cheapening yourself. And people are mocking you.”
“Why are you dating someone who doesn’t value you? Who dismisses you and your opinion?”
“You are beautiful.”
“You are valuable.”
“Don’t you know that you are the joy set before Jesus, that made Him certain that crucifixion was completely worth it?”
I love my people but I can’t imagine heading into crucifixion with joy. 🤤 That astounds me.
I really want ice cream.
Point to ponder while you wander…people are usually aware of their flaws, but not what makes them wonderful.
So next time you tell someone you love them. Tell them why. Or compliment who they are as a person.
