Discovering Extraordinary Grace in an Ordinary Life

Whisper of Adoration

Today I write the little girl cry in my heart that whispers and screams in the same breath. Maybe I’m not the only one longing from somewhere deep inside today.

Please look at me.

I mean really look at me.

Don’t look past me or through me or in me.

Just look at me.


See me for all that I am

and all that I’m not.

See me for my beauty

and my imperfections.

See me for yesterdays

and tomorrows.


But more than anything

please see me for today

and like what you see.


Don’t dismiss me

or brush off the parts

you don’t understand,

the parts I don’t understand.

Because those are part of

who I am.


Building blocks that are

a greater part

of a whole.


So please see me,

look and see all of me

and adore me

just the same.


Today I am linking words of freedom as I write for five minutes without second-guessing, editing, or planning. If you’d like to recapture that freedom of words woven free visit Kate Motaung to find out more.

About Becky Hastings

I am emotional and logical. I am strong and dependent. I am a juxtaposition of head and heart exploring it all through writing. And in all my mixed-up ways I am loved. I'm here to tell you that you are, too. Just the way you are.

    There’s a friend of mine who is seeing and understanding parts of me that have gone long unnoticed, and it’s proving deeply healing. Friendship or love like this is so important. May we all be friends like this to others! Thanks for putting this so beautifully here…

      Thank you Cara. It’s so refreshing to know we are not alone, even in — especially in matters of the heart.
