An oak tree can't become a pine
by wishing it were so.
A pine cannot become an oak,
its leafy bowers grow.
But in the wishing dawns a truth
that just amazes me.
Our God has made us all with care
just as He'd  have us be.
We're beautiful, our Father says,
with purpose and design.
If we become like someone else,
we miss His plan divine.
So if you start to doubt your worth,
remember what is true.
You're custom-made by God alone,
to be uniquely you.


Author Notes
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Thank you, reddingaz for the beautiful Plantation Oaks artwork!
