The study course I have started at the local college is all about caring for others but the session this week was also talking about caring for yourself. It made me think that so often we go and buy something to make ourselves feel better, to give us a lift but actually all we need to do is practise self-acceptance. God made you and loves you just as you are. God does not care whether you have a lovely handbag, drink organic wine or what kind of gifts you give. Give yourself the gift of knowing that you are loved today and knowing that you will be able to go and help others feel that love !
