"U" Is For Unique

The definition of unique being the only one of it's kind. So today I decided to use the word unique to fit in with the Alphabe Thursday post featuring the letter "U".
What is unique? Each individual person born is a unique one of a kind creature. Made without being copied or duplicated or triplicated. Each individual life is unique. No one else will have your finger print for instance. They will not have your unique individual personality. Each person will have different eyes, a nose and physical characteristics like no one else! You may look like a family member but you will have an appearance that can not be duplicated.
How many unique things do you see each day?

I just wanted to share this poem with you as I feel it ties into this post nicely.
by Elma Stuckey

If I am blind and need someone
To keep me safe from harm,
It matters not the race to me
Of the one who takes my arm.
If I am saved from drowning
As I grasp and grope,
I will not stop to see the face
Of the one who throws the rope.
Or if out on some battlefield
I’m falling faint and weak,
The one who gently lifts me up
May any language speak.
We sip the water clear and cool,
No matter the hand that gives it.
A life that’s lived worthwhile and fine,
What matters the one who lives it?

Now please visit Jenny and all the participates of Alphabe Thursday today.

I love that poem. How true! Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at his heart. We should all practice that daily.
