Love Letter Day 11

6:44 AM

People see you. They really see you. Your heart. Your passion. Your goodness. It is easy for you to fold inward and think of all your shortcomings, but you must keep doing, being the good. I love that even in your perfect imperfectness you keep finding a way to see the good. Thank you.

Love,

Me

Love Letter Day 9

5:52 AM

I am so glad you are not afraid of the setbacks in life. You recognize that life is a whole lot of giving and a little bit of take and this balance produces a beautiful dance. There are some things that you could choose to let get you down, but instead you have always picked up and kept on moving to the rhythm of life. Don't lose this dance in you. 

Love,

Me

I love the way you go and you go and you go after your dreams. You will not be stopped. Thank you for making it happen. Some people may never realize just how truly hard it can be to make it happen, but I admire the way you just do.

You're doing a great job!

Love,

Me

Love Letter Day 7

Dear Niecy,

The moment you gave yourself permission to stop worrying about the past or being anxious about the future, the Universe rejoiced that you were actually giving permission to live your life right now and to live it gloriously.  Thank you for doing that.

You realize sometimes you need to do what you need to do to heal yourself and at any moment you can change your kind and decide you want to do what you want to do. That is living life on your own terms and that is what I love about you.

Thank you for doing the work continuously to just keep growing. The world tells you to love one way, play this game, and you don't really subscribe to any of that. You allow yourself to be you and that is amazing.

Thank you.

Love,

Me

I am a lover of shabby chic decor. In fact, I've always thought about the space I lived in and wanted to keep it cozy. While nice, a 3,000 square foot home has intimidated me because I could never imagine how to make such a vast space cozy.

This room is right up my alley. Which Scentsy warmer would you choose?

Love Letter Day 5

7:58 PM

My love,

I LOVE your love for Christ.  You are not perfect but you are made perfect in Him. You have always loved Christ. Even though you are not always obedient to His commands, when He calls you back to Him you always safely return. I really love that about you. You give me the freedom to not try to be who and what I think I need to be for this world, but to allow Him to make me into who He wants me to be for this world. 

I love that you allow your heart to break for the things that break his heart. You have always cared about those who no one has cared for. Keep allowing His light to shine through you.

I love the woman of God that you are. I love that you are not afraid to tell your story so other's can find healing. I love that you trust God's plan for your life even when you cannot see it and have no clue how it could possibly be. 

You are a mighty woman of faith. This world needs you. I love you.

My love,

Me

Love Letter Day 4

11:52 AM

Dear Forgiver,

Today has become a day of mixed emotions for so many. For days I've been seeing posts about single moms asking folks not to wish them a Happy Father's Day, a card company placing Father's Day cards for moms on the shelves, and social media posts wishing those dads who are "doing a good job" well and trying to diss those who don't.

I love that from Day 1 of your separation you recognized the relationship between your son and his father was not something you would ever try to replace and you have worked diligently at all costs to defend that. Thank you for doing the work to forgive yourself and him so that the most precious gift God has given you can thrive. 

You are serving as a witness that when you open your heart to God's love and allow Him to heal you, life can be grand. Keep doing your work. It is a major part of your strength.

Love,

Me

Love Letter Day 3

6:32 AM

Hey Beautiful,

I caught a glimpse of you in the mirror this morning before you were trying to impress anyone or live up to the standards of the world. You were just being you - before the make-up, clothes, and outward appearance. You were just relaxed and going about as yourself. You are absolutely beautiful.

You should stop and look at yourself in the mirror more often. Oh and smile. Smile. I love your smile.  There's something you don't see when you're going about being busy. You don't see just how beautiful you really are.  Sometimes you start viewing yourself by all the things that have happened to you that you wish had not happened and you forget all the great things that have made you the woman you are today. Those thoughts can be harsh, but when you catch a glimpse of yourself, you'll see just how gentle you are. Keep being gentle with yourself. I love you that way.

My love,

Me

Love Letter Day 2

7:14 AM

Good morning My Love,

You have been called to a life's work to carry people's stories. Somedays, like today, you feel the weight of the evil in the world. You are God's servant and you can handle what He has called you to do. Do not be dismayed or discouraged, God has called you to light up some really dark places. 

Keep loving. Being love. You will not fail.

Love,

Me

Love Letter Day 1

7:06 PM
Dear Me,

Loving you has been a process. You're not this one dimensional, say what you want to hear type of girl. You like to feel the depth of love deep in your soul, which has made loving you an adventure worth taking. I love who you are, who you have allowed yourself to become, and that you are still open to becoming more. You don't view life as if you've arrived, but as if every day is unfolding a new lesson to be learned. Don't stop loving like you do.  For anyone who doesn't love you the way you want them to, know that it is not a reflection of you. Keep loving anyway. You know who you are, you know what you want, and you have fought to love yourself really hard. Guard that will all your heart, mind, and soul.

I love you.

Love, 

Me

40 Letters of Love

6:14 AM

In one of my daily devotionals by Iyanla Vanzant called Until Today, she challenged the reader to write 40 love letters to yourself and mail them. The idea of taking the time to write a beautiful letter of love to yourself for any amount of time made me curious. As I thought about it more, and as a blogger, I started to get excited about sharing what I write here. So for the next 40 days I will be sharing my love letters to myself with you here.

Life is not always kind to us and we have to remember to be gentle to ourselves. I love the woman that I am - flaws and glory and all (I have some really big flaws). So I am looking forward to what this journey has to hold.
