Pondering: Humanness

"Children need human mothers who can model for them how to make the most of their strengths, come to grips with their limitations, and manage their humanness to become the best they can be." MotherStyles, xiii

The way she writes "manage their humanness" makes it sound like a condition we weren't originally intended to have, like diabetes. It reminded me that perhaps we won't always be human. Someday I believe we will be a glorious something else...

"For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—  because anyone who has died has been set free from sin."
