Learning to love the way God made me!

I always hated my freckles. I used to actually pray they would disappear! As an adult, I have actually learned to like them. They keep me young looking and add character to my face.

I have them everywhere! You can even see them through my tattoos!

No one in my immediate family has as many freckles as me and I am the only one with blue eyes.

I used to look in the mirror and hate what I see. Don't get me wrong, I still have .."UGH! I am sooooo ugly!" days, but I am learning that God made me with a plan in mind and he made me so perfect in HIS eyes and that is quite a compliment if you ask me!

Psalm 139:14
 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

 So, I will continue to try to not look for my flaws in the mirror as I see them and start to try looking at myself the way God sees me.
