On December 21 2012, God gave me a gift. When He handed it to me, I immediately frowned because I didn’t like how it looked on the outside. The gift wrap wasn’t pleasant and I think I actually cried because I hated it so much. I placed it aside because I couldn’t understand why He says He loves me and would give me such a gift. I mean it was ugly, distasteful, hurtful and I just didn’t want it. He encouraged me to open it, I ignored…so He kept on encouraging me to open it. I didn’t want to but I thought I’d peak inside to see. Layer led to layer and to more layer, but the second layer wasn’t as ugly as the first and third layer wasn’t as ugly as the second and so on. When I got to the final layer, I had an idea of what the gift was but didn’t want to assume. I unveiled the final layer and saw the most beautiful gift anyone as ever given me. On December 21 2012, God gave me the most beautiful gift in what I thought was the ugliest gift wrap. God gave me myself, not who I wanted to be, not who I hoped I would be, but He actually gave me, ME. Now I can actually say, I love me some me because I am a gift from God to me. Welcome back, I missed you Dewayne and that smile of yours.
