I am Fearfully and Wonderfully Made!
Psalm 139:14, NIV I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Ok this is pretty silly but I just wanted to share it with you guys:)!
The other day, the kids and I were hanging out doing a bunch of different things, trying to quickly get the day started, when my 2yr old took a long look at my behind and suddenly announced: “That’s a really big bum-bum Mommy“!! Is that your big bum-bum??? He then came over to examine so carefully, what he seemed to have really noticed for the first time. Wow… Mommy has a big bum-bum!
I didn’t even know how to respond initially. lol. But he’s standing there looking all wide eyed at me, still waiting for an answer. So I say – yes honey, that’s my bum-bum!! You have a little bum and I have a big bum.. and it’s ok:)!
We all had a good laugh about it – My little guy was naturally just being inquisitive and he was free to express himself about this, just as he would express himself about anything else. He didn’t say it to insult me. He didn’t say it to praise me. It was just an observation. I know that for a fact because he is only 2yrs old!:)!
This little incident reminded me of two things –
First, it reminded me that whether a person is 2yrs old or 70yrs old, they may sometimes say something that might throw you off for a sec. Friends, people often say things without really realizing what it may sound like to others or what it may mean to you personally. No matter who a person is, no matter how well you know them, and no matter how old they are – Please don’t just assume that they are saying something to insult you. We all have different thought patterns and an innocent statement to one person might mean something completely different to someone else. More: Bible Verses about Jumping to Conclusions
And you know what, even if by chance they are saying it to insult you, ah well, it really doesn’t matter… it’s not your problem!:)! And that leads me to the second part – it’s not your problem because:
I am fearfully and wonderfully made! So it doesn’t matter if I have a big bum or a little bum. Big ears, little ears. Little nose, big nose. It’s all relative anyway – what’s “big” or “small” to one person is just perfect to another! It’s all a matter of perspective. The important thing is though – I’m fearfully and wonderfully made – I am pretty sure of that:). God took his precious time in creating every single part of me, from the tip of my head to the soles of my feet… and I am very thankful! More: Bible Verses about Being Thankful
So cheers to our big bums, little bums, big feet and little feet… Praise God for his wonderful works:)!!!
