You are something special!

In the Book of Genesis, God spoke:

“Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature. God created human beings; he created them reflecting God’s own nature. He created them male and female. And then God blessed them: 'Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge!  Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.' God looked over everything he had made; it was so good, so very good!"

Today we are reminded that God made each of us a uniquely beautiful person that he proclaimed to be so very good. Each one of us is an unrepeatable expression of God's goodness and beauty. If we do not live that truth and express it in our lives, it will never be expressed in this world for the glory of God.  

Today live the miracle that you are and glorify God ... in each moment ... in each encounter.

Huh! Thanks, Mike; you posted this on my birthday -- just as I've been praying for discernment about future activities.

As a Catholic I've never thought of myself as special; in fact, I still don't. But I DO know that God gives us each gifts, that form us in unique ways, that we must recognize within ourselves and nurture for the good of all. May we all be successful in that discernment.
