Gracie meets mirror

It happened the other day for the first time–Gracie saw herself in the mirror.


She got so excited about meeting that lovely little girl in front of her that she reached out  and her hands and face hit the mirror  Her joy was priceless, her smile as bright as the sun.

My grand-daughter met herself and it delighted her heart.

Those giggles bubbling out of her at the sight of herself, they traveled inside of me like blood in my veins, giving life to every cell of me, from my toes to the top of my head.

Gracie delights in Gracie. And I delight in her delight.

Gracie, she does not compare herself to anyone.  She is not finding fault in any part of her.  And all my buts and ifs, they fade in the face of her joy.

And right in that moment, I realize that God delights in my delight. And all my ifs and buts, they fade in the face of His joy. Because God, He does not compare me to anyone. He is not finding fault in any part of His creation.

Gracie giggles. And I join her.

  1. Oh, how precious and such a lesson she has taught me…to be wholly accepting of the one God created as I am. I needed Gracie’s beautiful lesson. Thanks for sharing it and her! : )

  2. I believe that God delights when we discover it is okay to be pleased with our self. Taking pride in a joy well done is “NOT” the wrong kind of pride. Your Gracie is precious and so sweet as she views the baby in the mirror. I wonder at that young age if they realize who it is in that frame? As we desire to become more like Jesus, we look into his Word as into a mirror, and behold His face. Thank you for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story.


  3. Love it, I remember when my daughter saw herself in the mirror for the first time, took me half an hour to get out of the store she kept going back and waving and chatting with the girl lol , what a precious memory thanks for sharing.
