Ponder: Swimming pools, flip flops, back yards, drink umbrellas, green grass, painted toenails – the universe is full of signs that God loves you. But in case you are having a hard time seeing it (or, more likely, believing it), let this picture spell it out for you: You are beloved. Just as you are. Every day. Especially today. What will you do with a love like that?
Pray: I am beloved. I am beloved. I am beloved. I am beloved. God, pray it with me today until I know it in my bones. Until I see it everywhere I look. Until I say it not just with my lips, but with my life. Amen.
