A Precious Possession

You need to realize you are special. God values you so much and wants the best for you. He’d say:

Take heart, you are my precious possession. I cherish you and watch your every move. But like a precious item at a 

 museum, there are risks inherent in sharing you to the world. I can’t selfishly keep you to myself and not let your glory and 

beauty be seen by the world. Because you didn’t stay close, the world mistreated you and damaged your beauty but I am a 

master crafter and I’ve been working diligently to repair and replace all the broken pieces so you’ll be ready to be displayed 

again. This time you’ll stay behind the protective glass and ropes  so that only those with my clearance can get near to you. Stay 

close to me so that no one can penetrate the hedge of protection I’ve set up. Then only those that truly know your value and will 

take care of you and treasure you as much as I do wil be near. 


You Chose

The first time I read this I knew it spoke to me…and thought you might need it now. Written by Shannon L. Alder. 

You chose.You chose.

You chose.

You chose to give away your love.

You chose to have a broken heart. 

You chose to give up. 

You chose to hang on.

You chose to react.

You chose to feel insecure.

You chose to feel anger.

You chose to fight back.

You chose to have hope.
You chose to be naïve. 

You chose to ignore your intuition.

You chose to ignore advice.

You chose to look the other way. 

You chose to not listen. 

You chose to be stuck in the past. 
You chose your perspective. 

You chose to blame. 

You chose to be right.

You chose your pride. 

You chose your games.

You chose your ego.

You chose your paranoia. 

You chose to compete.

You chose your enemies.

You chose your consequences.
You chose.

You chose.

You chose.

You chose.

However, you are not alone. Generations of women in your family have chosen. Women around the world have chosen. We all have chosen at one time in our lives. We stand behind you now screaming: 

Choose to let go.

Choose dignity. 

Choose to forgive yourself.

Choose to forgive others.

Choose to see your value.

Choose to show the world you’re not a victim.

Choose to make us proud.”
