I really like affirmations. I usually live for them. Lord help me know and believe how much you love me. I am special because you made me, you knew me before I was formed in my mothers womb. You have always had a plan for my life. Let me trust in you. Amen

Amen for the word. To not wrap a present and give it is a horrible thing to do to one's self. I have caught myself many times in that situation. Thanks for the words of encouragement M.O.I. Thank you, Anthony

A healthy balance & heart check is personally needed for me after being praised & complimented.
