look

I look down and I see my wrinkles and rolls, stretch marks and blemishes.  I see legs that are anything but tanned and an outfit devoid of style. 

I look up and I see their bright eyes and a beautiful smile.  I see shoulders that hug and arms that hold.  I see hairs that He numbers. 

When I look down, I see only myself.  But when I look up, I see others the way He sees me.

When I look down, I’m self-conscious.  When I look up, I am free to think of others.
