~ Melody Beattie

‘Every part of God’s creation is very good and very special because it results from the loving design of Almighty God…As persons created in the divine image we are very special.

It comes from the Creator of the galaxies who selected human beings alone out of the almost infinite multitudes of the created order to bear the divine image. No matter how poor and defenseless  old and weak, crippled and deformed, young and helpless, human beings enjoy a God-given worth and dignity that sets them apart from the rest of creation.’
