"Crags and Clay"

(by Gungor)

When this song first came out, I knew that I had to post it during NEDA week.


On the Gungor blog, Michael Gungor had the following to say about today's song:

It ends with Lisa’s voice singing “fearfully and wonderfully and beautifully made.” I think in a world full of plastic surgery and magazines and film constantly bombarding us with what is beautiful; women in our society have an especially difficult time with self-image. Beauty in our culture is valued in terms of beauty over and against other human beings, and it is based on the small variations of specific physical features. However, human beings as a work of art in and of themselves are exceptionally and beautifully made.

If our girls grew up finding their value and their beauty in their humanity rather than their measurements, we would have a healthier society. I want our baby girl, Amelie, to grow up knowing she is beautiful, but not just beautiful compared to other creations of God. I want her to know that she is beautiful primarily because she is a creation of God.
That is my prayer for my baby girl, for every girl that I know, and for every girl who reads this blog.


"I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made..." {Psalm 139:14a}

"He has made everything beautiful in its time..." {Ecc. 3:11a}
