Yes - I am brand new
And its not due to my hair, nails or clothes I wear
But because I have been made aware that the inside needed to be upgraded too
I mean that old model was fine for where I used to be
But "used" hearts don't age gracefully in this arduous journey that life can sometimes be
So, you showed me that I must renew this altar of my heart daily.
Watch what my ears hear and my eyes see
Because if I do ears have not heard , eyes seen, nor thought entered into the heart, the things that you have in store for me
Cover me with your grace and glory
Make me bold to stand for all that's TRUE.
Shine your light through me Lord, and draw others to want to shine for you.

I was talking with a coworker today about her marriage. She stated that she was "spoiled" and explained what that looks like in her relationship. It made me think about what being "spoiled" means to me. It means sincerely listening to what's on my mind, knowing me well enough to tell when "Superwoman" needs to remove her cape & be rescued by "Superman", remembering the little things that make me smile, doing the mundane things that show that you care...Like, surprising me with my favorite ice cream or singing my favorite song, holding me in silence or speaking life into my dreams...Tuning into/taking care of the things concerning my heart/Spirit/soul. Growing up, I was the strong one and have carried that into my adult life... and while, I probably could do this thing called life alone, I am realizing now more than ever that I don't want to. I desire to be a "brat" ... Yep, spoiled rotten!
