“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
Luke 12:7

“People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and they pass themselves by without wondering.” — St. Augustine, 354-430 A.D.

In the Eastern Sierras, there is an Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. Some of these trees date back to 3,000 years old, with the oldest known one being over 4,700 years old. Each tree is a work of art – a tribute to the life it has lived. Each tree is unique in its shape and size and texture – no two are alike. These trees have survived fires and storms, and continue to heal and survive, majestically.

Each of us survives life’s challenges and storms, painting us into beautiful art, each unique and precious – a rare gem. No one person is like any other. The combination of our physical looks, our characteristics, our talents and skills make us a unique expression of God. Yet, we pass by ourselves without awe, without wondering at the miracle of us.

Each of us is a work of art. We have been molded with our opportunities and challenges of life. You know, personally, just what you have lived through. Yet, we downplay our skills and talents; we are slow to forgive ourselves for mistakes; and we are very critical of ourselves, in so many ways.

If we were to have a friend who lived through exactly the same life, we would have great admiration for that friend. We would be in awe that our friend had survived and had survived so well. Yet, we pass by ourselves, as though we have accomplished some small, petty thing.

Today, take a moment, and revel in the fact that you have gotten to this point in your life, in the very best ways you have known how. Each and every moment, you do the best that you can, with what you have before you. When we look back, we usually see that we could have done it better – but, really, at the time, we didn’t know what we know now. So, today, we let go of our criticisms of our thoughts, our words, and our actions, and

we just appreciate ourselves.

Today, we hold ourselves in God’s precious light that shines through us, each moment, and we see ourselves for what we really are – God’s precious art — a work of art that is invaluable and irreplaceable.

Today, as we pass by ourselves, we wonder, in awe, how we could be so good – and we know the answer. God resides within us, helping us along our way, constantly perfecting this treasure – ourselves.

You are God’s child – a rare, special work of art.



O God, You understand my feelings at this moment; You know my fears and my nervousness, You know my thoughts that I can’t put into words. I thank You for Your wisdom. Give me strength all during this day and help me continually to place myself in Your hands.



This day is a new opportunity to experience God’s blessings.


“I am always doing that which I cannot in order that I may learn how to do it.”
Pablo Picasso
