30 Dr. Seuss Quotes . . . Today You are You!

A few years ago throughout the month of March, in honor of Dr. Seuss, I shared some of his famous - and not-so-famous - quotes with you. This year I thought it would be fun to focus on a few of my favorites throughout the month . . . so, today's Dr. Seuss quote is . . . "Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You!" 

I love this quote and it is truer than true! As you go through this day remember, God created you to be the amazing, incredible person you are. He knew what He was doing when He created you and He did not make a mistake! 

This truth is so important for us to teach and remind our grandchildren. Look at what Psalm 139:16 has to say about this; "But with your own eyes you saw my body being formed. Even before I was born, you had written in your book everything I would do.

Most importantly, you - and the children you love - are of infinite value to God . . . so much so He sent Jesus to die for you all so you could live with Him forever! Just look at Ephesians 1:4-6 - "Before the world was created, God had Christ choose us to live with him and to be his holy and innocent and loving people. God was kind and decided that Christ would choose us to be God's own adopted children. God was very kind to us because of the Son he dearly loves, and so we should praise God." 

God created you with your own fingerprints, your own eye color, hair color and smile, so take a moment to think about the person God created you to be and thank God for creating you! 

Be sure to point these things out to your grandchildren, too! You could have them make handprints on paper or fabric and then talk about how God created them to be the unique, amazing, special and greatly loved people they are! Spend time affirming each grandchild - "Thank You God for creating ___________! Please help him/her know before his/her body was formed, You saw him/her! Please help him/her know before the world was created, You chose him/her to live with you and be Your adopted child!"
