you are enough

Tuesday, March 19

A few weeks ago I read something so inspiring and beautiful I wanted to share it with you. 
I have been meditating on it all week, reading it and rereading it because it lifted my soul. 
When my sweet lovely sister Lena came to visit me for a week, 
we giggled and laughed our way through a fun photo shoot in the park 
and I thought i'd pair them both together for you on this Tuesday! 
The following words are taken from an article called "You are Enough"
from a blog called Darling Magazine. 
We must choose grace. 
We must choose to take it easy on one another,
 and to be kind to other women.
We must choose to believe that we have something to offer this world 
that no one else can.
You have something inside of you 
that is so unique and so good.
Next time you are tempted to compare yourself to someone else, 
look deep inside of yourself. 
Explore and find out what it is that makes you different, 
what it is that makes you feel special and beautiful and whole.
Draw upon it whenever you are feeling like you aren’t enough.
Let it shine and glow though you.
Take hold of whatever it is you find and don’t ever let it go.
If you are a painter, paint. 
If you are a writer, write. 
If you are a lover, love.
Don’t worry about whether or not someone else can do it better than you. 
No one else can be you, and you were created in the image of a perfect creator.
Don’t allow comparison to rob you of 
your uniqueness, 
your imagination, 
your light and 
your joy.

isn't that so so good? 
when I read it I seriously let out a sigh of relief, 
thankful that even if someone can do something better than me, 
only I can do it the way God created me to do it! 

that we are shaped and molded after the Creator to do what only we can do? 
to love and serve and GO where only HE has called us? 

I think in the end, this quote embodies being brave. 
To step into the treasures Abba has given us, 
instead of comparing and wanting what others have. 

we are unique and fully loved. 
and that is grace
flowing down from our loving Father. 

happy tuesday dearest friends! 
love katie

  23. so beautiful. i think we all struggle sometimes with looking at someone doing something better than us, but we forget we do it in an unique way just like our Father created us to be. this was a beautiful reminder and the photoshoot came out gorgeous! you two are beautiful!

  24. beautifully written. I always try to keep in mind: "whatever you do, do it with all of your heart." We each are gifted in different ways, and it doesn't help anyone to just conform to each other.

  25. That is beautiful. Everything about it, the words, pictures, and the two of you. What a wonderful reminder. Thank you.

  26. oh my goodness.... first of all, you both are BEAUTIFUL. second of all, i read this post this morning and was so touched by it and its so cool to read your post on it tonight. you're such a vessel of God's beauty, love, and joy, katie!
