Live the Unique Life God Gave You

This quote from Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers) is true for our grandchildren; and for us. As our grandchildren begin a new year of school, with new "chances/opportunities", be sure to take the time to encourage them to live the life God has given them and to bring their own wonderful, "uniqueness" to each opportunity the have in the coming year. Encourage them with the truth they do not have to be "perfect" - as none of us are - but they are able to live in a redeeming way which points others to Jesus and displays what it looks like to live life in a way which celebrates all the wonderful, unique things God put in them when He created them.

And, take a look in the mirror. God created you in wonderful, unique ways, too. You have "chances/opportunities" to live the life God gave you and to make a difference in the lives of the ones who God put in your life. Please allow me to encourage you with the truth of how you do not have to be perfect, either; and could not be, even if you tried your best. Do your best with what God has given you and celebrate all the wonderful, unique things God put in you when He created you as well.

As you live this way, you will be free to experience the joy and peace God gives. And, when your grown children and your grandchildren see you live in this way, you will be making a profound impact on them as you model living what it looks like to live knowing the truth about how no one else is able to live your life and choosing to live it to the glory of God as you point others to Him.
