for christmas mandy gave me a beautiful silver cross and a copy of this poem: (i'm going to frame it and hang it near the cross)

You are who you are for a reason.
You're part of an intricate plan.
You're a precious and perfect unique design,
Called God's special woman or man.

You look like you look for a reason.
Our God made no mistake.
He knit you together within the womb.
You're just what he wanted to make.

The parents you had were the ones He chose.
And no matter how you may feel,
They were custom-designed with God's plan in mind,
And they bear the Master's seal.

No, that trauma you faced was not easy,
And God wept that it hurt you so;
But it was allowed to shape your heart,
So that into His likeness you'd grow.

You are who you are for a reason.
You've be formed by the Master's rod.
You are who you are, beloved,
Because there is a God!

(4th stanza really speaks to me because it reminds me of the time when i had the nervous breakdown. i really did grow from that experience! unfortunately i have let myself slip backwards since that time.)

Thank you for sharing this Carol. I really loved it. What a great daughter you have! I also loved the Bibly reading program. It reminds me I need to be more diligent in my scripture study, there's a lot to be gained there and I get lax so much of the time. The crazy woman sign is pricless! Is it pointing at MY house?
