On this Tuesday, I am choosing to pray and leave the election results to my Sovereign Heavenly Father.
Instead of wringing my hands, I have chosen to think about something beautiful.
And that is - each of us!
Yes, the beauty and diversity found in everyone of us.
No two of us are the same and yet we are equally as beautiful and unique.
We talk so much about skin color and skin type these days and much of it with a negative connotation. There have been major uprisings and killings this year based solely on the color of a person or person's skin.
If we were stripped of our outer layer of skin, or appearance, our composition would still be the same. A beating heart and two lungs are equivalent across the board, no matter how much or how little melanin is present.
Each and every one of us is both mentally and physically unique. That is what makes our existence so great. We need to stop putting people into boxes and start expanding the potential for good and accept the differences.
Everyone is different. From brown-skinned Queens,
to fair-skinned men and women, from blue eyes to irises dark as night, from freckled to olive complexion,
there is no wrong way to be.
Some of us are blended, some of us have unique genetics which make for very rare differences. It is these qualities that make us absolutely incredible.
As children, many of us sang the song,
"Jesus Loves the Little Children of the World, red and yellow, black, and white, they are precious in His sight," then grew into adults and promptly forgot it.
Think about what this world would be if all had been created visually the same. We weren't!
And that is the greatest thing of all.
Watch the world around you change in infinite ways for the better.
There is so much beauty in diversity!
Embrace the beauty in yourself and around you!
