"To me you are,
Heaven's finest invention by far,
Even brighter than the brightest star,
What I'd give to make you see,
Who you are to me."
- Matthew West
I dread the day she'll first be rejected and she'll know it. I dread the day when another will break her heart. I dread the day when she'll ask, "why not me, mommy?" ...because I see her heart. I see her soul. And what I see is the finest creation God's ever made.
I can't protect her. But I can believe in her. I wont be able to prevent all the tears and the hurt. And I'm learning to accept that. But I deeply desire for her to always know who it is she is to me, her daddy, and her Savior. Because she is HEAVEN'S.FINEST.INVENTION.
So I pray over her.
I pray over the future moments where she wont be picked first. I pray for the future moments when he might love another. I pray over the future moments when it all just wont seem fair.
And until those moments creep up on us, we'll absorb the here and now. The moment where her innocence and Joy is all she knows.
And we'll laugh. And we'll sing. And we'll dance! Because it is what is in us.
We'll clap and play until our little hearts are tired from silliness. Because I always want her to know just who she is to me.
And the truth is, WE ALL ARE. We are Heaven's Finest Invention. And all of our failures, mistakes, and messes are exactly what makes Grace, BEAUTIFUL!
And Matthew West's song, "To Me" is inspired by a true story that I beg you to read and see. In fact, his entire album, "The Story of Your Life" is based off of true stories sent into him. And I can honestly say that these are the BEST songs I've ever heard!
