When I'm 42

Michael Jackson and Roberta Flack sang a song in Free to Be You and Me, When We Grow Up. It was written by Diana Ross. I have always loved this duet.

When I'm 42.

When we grow up will I be a pretty
will I be big and strong

Well, I don't care if I'm pretty at all.

Can you live in your skin now?
Is it enough? Are you good and true and full?

God thinks you are. God loves you as you are and is situated to help you live your purpose.

Who loves you like this?
Humans are too selfish for this kind of service. If we are this obsessively focused we tend to have personality disorders. We are infatuated in an unhealthy, unbalanced way.
But God is obsessively in love with you. Lavishing love without a break.

How much of your heart is
covered up
hiding blemishes

It's enough
     It's enough to be spontaneous
letting your light shine

don't let your illumined self be dimmed
one iota

There is risk
without a covering
a protective layer
but your natural grain
It's your genuine self
