I recently was blessed to spend time with my family for a few days. It was rich! I love my family and every day realize how blessed I was to be raised in the family I was raised in, and have the parents I have. PTL!

My dad commented one day how much my daughter was like me, not just in appearance, but in mannerisms, gestures, etc. He said I even walked up the steps sideways, like she does, when I was her age. When I am thinking I put my fingers on my face like my dad does. There are just things about each of us that represent the likeness of those we come from. Some are genetic, some are learned patterns.

This got me to thinking about the likeness I have or show from the Father. Do my steps represent Him? Do my gestures, words, and actions look like Him? Selfishly, I would like to think they do, but realistically, I know they do not.

We are made in His image, and I want to reflect that well. My prayer is that He would remind me and convict me when my actions, words, and expressions are not in the likeness of Him, so that the reflection I show, truly does REFLECT His character.

    Beautiful post! And beautiful baby girl! What a treasure to know that her heart for God will grow because of what she sees in her mama. I know you see how much more growth there is, but you do so greatly reflect your heavenly Father in your passion for Him.
