Grant: "I might want to marry that girl."
Me: "You just met her, what if you don't like the same things?" (After all, he's a bit young to get married don't you think???)
Grant: (very seriously) "But Mom, God made everyone different, and that's ok!"
Me: (eating my previous words) "You're are right buddy, he did."
I tell this story today not to let you know Grant is now off to get married, but I think it's such a good reminder for us all. Psalm 139: 13 says "For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother's womb."
God created us to be individuals. I don't share this to make excuses for personal sin in people's lives, we have free will to choice how we live our lives here on earth. I share this because sometimes we feel like we need to be cookie cutter versions of those who look like they've got it all together, when really, we each have our own struggles, some people are just better at hiding them. I think it's so important to be comfortable in our own skin and not feel the need to emulate those around us or those we follow on Social Media. Sometimes the best reminders come from our kids. The reality is, I've said that exact statement to Grant before, I just need to make sure I can take it as seriously as he does.
