6. I Love Me.

I am good enough. I'm nowhere near perfect, but God made me who I am, and I am enough.

This is the picture that inspired this whole theme in the first place (and Libby's "enough" post awhile ago). It's the only picture I have of me alone in my house (taken by Nancy Reins on our wedding day) and I love it. It's an external picture of who I am inside. My ideal. Who I strive to be every day.

Not everyone will agree with me. Not everyone will like me. But at the end of the day, it's okay. I'm enough.

This post is not to express conceit, but to encourage you to look for the best you and love yourself this Valentine's Day...God already does.

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your families from ours!

I'm glad you love you. 'Cuz lots of people love you. Including me.

It's a good thing to love yourself since you are going to spend the rest of your life with you. :)

P.S. This post did not sound egotistical.

this is a lovely post. You look stunning in this photo (plus, i LOVE the hair, I wish other peeps would stick with their short hair, instead of trying to wear it long on their wedding day, but that is beside the point, today). God has given you a great gift of strength of self. He done good!
