Beautifully His

Psalm 139:14 

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.

Beautifully His 12/6/12

Barefoot child,
Hair a mess,
Spinning, twirling
In a dress.
I'm a princess-
My mommy told me so!

Preteen girl,
Freckled face,
Wondering, wishing
To find a place.
I'm not pretty enough
And I can't be.

Young adult,
Steely eyes,
Thinking, Certain,
Beauty is lies.
If only I try harder
To follow the crowd.

Fully grown,
Not content,
Trying, hoping,
To retain years spent.
I lost my beauty years ago
But maybe this can get it back.

Child beloved,
Made with care,
Remember, see,
God is there.
You are created beautiful
Because you are uniquely Mine.
