we are beautiful // a freewrite

these days, my words don’t come out as easily as they used to. they get tangled and muffled and drowned out by the busyness and hustle of life. in order to get them out, i decided to freewrite this crazy and messy piece. i hope it reminds you of how beautiful you are.


we have stars in our eyes and fire in our souls and dreams in our hearts. we have songs in our heads and stories to tell. we have broken hearts that learn to heal over and over again and shattered dreams and lost loves and failed friendships. we have tear-stained cheeks and memories of endless nights.

we are beautiful.

we are heavy and we are light and we are dark and yet so bright. we carry burdens and joy. we have songs of laughter and rivers of tears. we have words to write and tell and melodies to sing. we have grace and redemption gluing our broken pieces together and somehow making them more beautiful than when we were whole.

we are beautiful.

and we are alive. we are beautiful. we have glory tangled in our hair. we are the most beautiful mess. we are unsure and certain and vulnerable and strong. we know what we want but we fear it too. we are sinners and saints and sunrises and sunsets.

we are beautiful.

we are beautiful, for we are so much more than flesh and bones. we are bravery, we are songs. we are reflections of glory. we are beautiful, for we have dreams and wild and beating hearts. we are beautiful, for we are more light than we are dark. we are more than what we know, more than what we dream, more than who we are in this very moment. we are not who we will be. we have hope. we have grace. we have beauty.

we are beautiful.

    Gaby, God truly blesses every word you write. I needed to read this, and it kind of explains two words that I have constantly found on my mind over the past month or so, “beautifully broken”. That is what we are, and I am learning to grasp what that means for me day by day.

    You are such a treasure and I wish I could hug you and tell you thank you for writing whatever is on your mind a million times over! ❤
