Have you ever seen the movie Mulan? Mulan is a brillant and beautiful girl, but is often a little clutsy and never quite does the right thing. In the beginning of the movie her family is primping her to be married. But Mulan blows her interview with the marriage facilitator and disappoints herself and her family. Shortly after she sings this song…
Look at me
I will never pass for a perfect bride
Or a perfect daughter
Can it be
I’m not meant to play this part?
Now I see
That if I were truly to be myself
I would break my family’s heart
Who is that girl I see
Staring straight back at me?
Why is my reflection someone
I don’t know?
Somehow I cannot hide
Who I am though I’ve tried
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?
This song is my oldest daughter’s favorite song of all Disney movies. She sings it all the time. I’m sure she doesn’t understand the impact of the lyrics. However, when I heard her singing these lyrics tonight in light of yesterday’s post (the beauty of Christ) it hurt my soul. What do you think?

Our sweet new adoptee is getting into trouble. She has been snapping at my youngest daughter (5 yr old) lately. And quite honestly, I’m getting nervous about the safety of my kids. I hate to give up on this lovable girl, especially since someone else has already let her down. But it’s definitely not worth the risk. I’m hopeful that with training she’ll get better. But is that realistic? Anyone have any experience in this area? Thanks!
