Inked

This quote pretty much sums up why I got a tattoo a few months ago- yep, at 40 years old . I am now permanently marked with the word "beloved."  I need a constant reminder because I easily forget WHOSE I am and WHO I am. 

Henri Nouwen says: Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the 'Beloved.' Being the Beloved constitutes the core truth of our existence.  Amen.

I will forget over and over again, but maybe having it permanently marked on my foot will remind me a little more.
