Don’t Mess With Me

January 18, 2012 in Simple Religion by Lorilee Lippincott

This is a shot my husband got of me this past weekend.  He has been working on close up photography and editing so I get practiced on a lot :)

Value sadly is in short supply.  Too often people don’t see their value, or the value in others…..or they have one and not the other.  Self-esteem, self-respect, caring, and compassion come from a healthy understanding of value.  Simple minimalist living has got to start in the soul and value is so important.

In November I read a book called Spiritual Parenting: An Awakening for Today’s Families by Michelle Anthony.  It was a great book on helping kids grow in a relationship with God instead of just worrying about their behavior.  What really jumped at me from the book was this quote I wanted to share with you.

She wrote it with her name, I have inserted my name, you can change it to your name…. you get the drill. This is based on Ephesians 1

“My name is Lorilee Lippincott.  I am the chosen and adopted daughter of the Most High King.  I’m the heir to an eternal inheritance waiting for me in heaven.  I have been bought and completely paid for by the perfect sacrifice of Christ’s own blood and am sealed throughout all eternity by God’s Holy Spirit.  Don’t mess with me!” Spiritual Parenting by Michelle Anthony

Isn’t this awesome! It has punch and power to it.  It screams value.  I need to post it on the mirror, repeat it to the kids, and live like I believe it.

Have a wonderful day today!
