"You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."- The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams
Here I stand humbled by the love that You give,
Forgiven so that I can forgive.
So here I stand,
Knowing that I am Your design,
Sanctified by glory and fire.
And now I've found the greatest love of all is mine,
Since You laid down Your life,
The greatest sacrifice
Your grace has found me just as I am
Empty handed but alive in Your hands
Forever I am changed by Your love
In the presence of Your Majesty
