interesting thought

Listen to this thought (not mine, but I thought it was interesting; and saw it in a rock before I could see it in me...will explain later.)

God made humans by mixing 2 very different things: divine breath and dust. Spirit and earth were woven together. On one side we are realated to the angels, the transcendent, the spiritual, the Amish. On the other, we are cousins to jackals, weasels, skunks and lawyers.
-Dr. Terry Lindvall

The Maker of all things bright and beautiful is also the maker of some things embarrassing and funny. Thank God for the humility that comes in being "made a little lower than the angels" as well as "cousins to jackals, weasels, and skunks."
-Rachel St. John-Gilbert

As a father has compassion on his chidlren, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
-Psalms 103:13-14

He REMEMBERS that we are DUST.
Not meant to be perfect. Never able to be perfect.
But always able to be loved- as we are. Composed of dust, dirt, muck, mud, putrid essence...
And still loved.
Thank you, Lord! For remembering, for understanding, for loving- me as me.
