This makes me think… about the particular love God has for each us…

Da Vinci painted one Mona Lisa.
Beethoven composed one Fifth Symphony.
And God made one version of you…

We exist to exhibit God, to display His glory.

We serve as canvases for His brushstroke, papers for His pen, soil for His seeds, glimpses of His image.

–Max Lucado, Cure for the Common Life

I write about the enormous blessing of being made in the image of God in my book, Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious. You can read an excerpt on Amazon.



  1. That is a BEAUTIFUL quote, Pat! Thanks for sharing!

    I’m having a little fun over at my blog this morning by nominating you for the Sunshine Award, which is passed on by bloggers to other bloggers who “positively and creatively inspire others in the blogospere.” Check it out! You don’t have to play, of course … I just wanted you to know that I think you’re great; your book made a huge difference in my life; and I was so blessed to meet you IRL this past fall! You are a gift! Have a blessed day!!
