As I was searching through blogs that I follow, I came across someone who posted a song that hit me kind of hard and reminded me of a time my freshman year of college.
I wrote a poem on my mission trip my freshman year. It was all about how I never heard the words “you are beautiful” or of the like from anyone. The group I was traveling with was not getting along all the best all the time, so it kind of provoke the poem along. This poem I never showed anyone. Ash Wednesday was about a couple of weeks after we got back from the mission trip. A couple of friends saw me crying that day. One the next night insisted we talked. After a long conversation of her sharing with me to make me more open to talking to her, it ended in a way that caught me off guard. She said three things to me, then made me repeat them about myself. The first of which was “you are beautiful.” When I got back to my dorm, I could not believe it. God answered a prayer that was not really prayed, but still in my heart. The other things she told me were “your are wonderful” and “your are loved beyond comparison.” I still say each of those each night, as well as the other prayers I say in the evening.
Having shared that, this is what was going through my mind as I listened to this song. It is also why I got really excited when I realized I have it on my iPod. I hope you enjoy this song and find some important meaning in it for you.
