Today is the day set a side as by The National Organization for Women as Love Your Body Day. Of course, we should all love our body EACH and EVERY DAY but I know, for me personally, that doesn't always happen. There are days that I don't feel pretty or feel fat or just not happy with my body. But TODAY is the day to focus on the WONDER that ARE OUR BODIES!
When I worked as a camp counselor I would sometimes work with middle school girls. At least one devotion during the week would be about the beauty of our bodies. I had a beautiful quote framed to share with the girls: Part of it included a quote by Oscar Wilde:
"To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance... My greatest mistake, my fault for which I can't forgive myself is that one day I ceased my obstinate pursuit of my own individuality."
There were also a couple Bible verses that I would read to the girls.
- "He said to the disciples, "Therefor I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food and the body more than clothing." Luke 12:22-23
- "You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you." Song of Solomon 4:7
What do you love about your body? I love curly hair, body, teeth (no braces!), and feet that move me! Do you have a favorite quote that deals with loving your body?
