Gazing at these pictures tonight, I had an epiphany.
I eyed a daughter who suddenly noticed
she was being watched,
and then sprinted passionately to the mother she loves.
Yet I also saw myself, and how I desire to run the race.

This race called LIFE!
So often I get sidetracked from what is truly important.
I lose my perspective, and begin to pursue things that I am not called to –
at least not in this season.
I might even close my eyes to issues around me,
and pretend that everything is alright.
“How are you?”
“Just fine, thanks, and you?”
Do I truly want to become vulnerable by taking off that “mask” we women are such masters at wearing?
And then I remember….I remember the Truth!
I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
He loves me just the way I am.
And so I don’t desire to just walk…
I want to run …
I want to run into the arms of the Heavenly Father
who envelopes me with an Everlasting Love.
Nothing I have done or ever will do
changes the truth that I am more precious than
gold or silver.
I am cherished beyond measure.
I am His beloved child!
So run, precious one, run!
Run with passionate abandon, into the welcoming arms of the only true Savior.
He can’t wait for you to come
.
And wait He will.
He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
His love endures for ever.
So what’s stopping you?
