Thick, thin, black, white—
You are beautiful
All different, but completely the same
Made in God’s image
Made by God, made like God
Sculpted by God’s miraculous hands
Tall, short, brunette, blonde—
None of it matters because we are
made in God’s image
made by God’s love
reflected not by our bodies
but by our hearts.
– Margaret Ridge, age 15
