21 Grams

21Grams...

Not 150 lbs, just 21 grams. 
That's who I am - 21 grams. 
They say the soul weighs 21 grams. 
They say when you die, the body weighs 21 grams less. 

That's it - 21 grams. 

How can all of who we are be weighed? How can it be only 21 grams?

Makes me wonder… Why am I carrying all this additional weight?

What is the weight of my guilt? My unworthiness, my shame, my hopelessness, my powerlessness?

What is the weight of my love? My appreciation, my understanding, my grace, my value?
