On the Cottage Porch
Down on the (Frenchman) Bay
Today I allowed myself to be beautiful.
I didn’t stop in front of the mirror to ask permission. Or pause as I dressed to inquire of my flaws.
I dressed in what I would wear if I liked my figure and gave no thought to the numbers on the labels.
Today I didn’t dwell on any imperfections (present or imaginary) and no standard was used to measure my worth ,
except the One Creator whose hands created this earth.
I didn’t look to others to invite me into their circles, I simply took a step towards where He wanted me to be.
As I continued walking in the Spirit I slowly became me.
She is clothed with strength and dignity,� and she laughs without fear of the future.
