I have a beautiful Pandora bracelet that my daughters got me several years ago. I always have it on. Over the years I have added charms for all of my daughters, their husbands and their children. It means so very much to me.
Each charm is special. I have different color beads for some of my grandkids, each one represents someone very dear to me. I have a coffee cup from my youngest daughter because she knows how important my coffee is. The one for my middle son-in-law has turquoise. He is a native Arizonan like his parents and proud of it.
My daughter designs and makes jewelry. She made me a little replica of our towns courthouse. Each charm and each person has so much meaning to me when I look at them. I see family when I look at each charm.
God sees all his children in the same way. We are his pride and joy that he delights in. He sees us as very special and unique charms. No two alike. He can remember each one over thousands of years and all over the world.
Today he took one of his charms home to be with him as my roommate past from this life to the next and I had to smile for she waited so long for this day.
He smiles as he thinks about each. Some thoughts he has:
Angels rejoice over us, demons flee from us. James 4:7
God dances over us with singing. Zephaniah 3:17
We are the righteousness of Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:21
We have an abundance for every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
We were predestined by God for success. Romans 8:28-30
We are placed and seated with him, a king and priest, part of a chosen generation, a peculiar people. 1 Peter 2:9
We are blessed coming in and going out. Deuteronomy 28:13
We are equipped with the full armor of God. Ephesians 6:13
Just a few of the things he has said about his children. Rest in the confidence we have that he cares for us. We are all very greatly loved.
