A Woman’s Worth…

Standard

How do you gauge a woman’s worth?

Is it based on her hair surely it must be there?

Is it her batting lashes that bring flashes of flirtatious fun?

Is it the sparkle and shine from a makeup line?

Is it the lips divine or her hips sublime?

Is it in her girth that you see her worth?

Is her worth contingent on beauty that only the eyes can see?

Is her worth between her thighs are lying deep in her eyes?

Is worth something of this Earth?

Is a brain something to disdain?

Is the soul being left to become a black hole?

Is the quality of her heart no longer a good place to start?

Woman of worth it was given to you at birth…

Don’t you see that your beauty lies with Me?

Daughters of Eve I want you to believe.

You are emitting rays of light; shining; bright for in you I delight.

Your Master and Maker never to be your heartbreaker.

Store up your treasures here for they are secure.

In Me you will forever see your beauty and worth are certainly nothing from Earth.

How do you gauge a woman’s worth…look beyond what only the eye can see surely you will find Me

In the depth of her heart lies so much wisdom to impart.

Laden with love sent from above

A rare breed indeed are the daughters of Eve.

Hold them tight and help them find My light.

The world tells woman that the gauge of their worth is solely on their outward appearance…we wax, tan, color and cut, diet and forever worry that the way we look will be acceptable, special, and that someone anyone will find us beautiful, desirable, and worthy of love. The truth is we already have all those things because we are loved and cherished by our Heavenly Father!! My greatest desire as a mother is to have a daughter who becomes a woman after God’s own heart who is secure and comfortable in her person because her worth is not based on things of this world. God gave us worth and I pray that women take stock in that and follow their God-given journey and through that find peace and purpose.

Matthew 10:29-31 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Tired But Happy…

Standard

I am tired but happy…day 2 went well I have enjoyed the women I have met I appreciate that I am getting a good idea of the kinds of people I will be working with and I like that I will have some diversity in this position and maybe an opportunity to be a helper and love people to Jesus…though it is a  Christian childcare center you are not required to be a Christian to work there and one of the young ladies who I worked with today admitted that she was not religious. Now I do not know if she meant she is not a believer or that she just doesn’t buy into the whole idea of organized religion and religious attitudes. But my intuition says that she is not a believer. Which is an opportunity for me to be Jesus with skin on. I really think that there is a reason that she is working in a Christian center…granted I may not be able to make a difference for Jesus but I know what I can do is pray and talk about my faith and my experiences with God.

I think it is good for me to be in this situation where I am thinking about my faith and about God on a everyday basis. I literally feel the presence and see the beauty of God every single time I have driven to the Center and walked out the doors to go home because of the beauty that surrounds me there a picturesque view of God’s creation. Mountains and sky for miles. I love it!!! I also have been driving in at sunrise everyday and have been filled with peace and joy like God is speaking to me through His creation.

Draw me closer Lord show me your hand and make me crave to be in your presence. I love how you work and touch my heart uniquely in a way that no one ever could. I have been so blessed and even through the darkest times I could feel your hand on my heart begging to be let in. I would not be here today without you. Thank you for never letting go of my heart.

Peanut and I have been listening to KTSY in the car and I am loving it I have had a bad attitude about Christian music for years. I just made a decision to change one thing and that was the music in the car and I have been pleasantly surprised because there is truly some fun and great songs on there that are fresh and modern. Peanut is starting to sing along with them and I love hearing that sweet voice singing about her love for her Heavenly Father.

As for her and I we have had a good week with little to no drama. For which I as a single Momma am eternally grateful…things with The Man Vincent are going well and he is still making me smile everyday. And the more I know the more I am intrigued by him. What an amazing story he has, I am especially enjoying his good, strong and intelligent heart and mind. I appreciate that I am seeing the upside of things right now and that I have a glimmer of joy and a measure of the peace I have so longed for in recent months.

More to come of this adventure…

Progress…

Standard

Today I realized I have made PROGRESS when I signed up for the Treasure Valley Weight Loss Challenge I had I would say low expectations for my motivation. But, I kept it in my mind and I made an effort to be more conscious of the what was going in my mouth. Part of my motivation was also my little Peanut and her health we have had a very sedentary fall and winter since we were stuck at home 90% of the time. I hit the highest weight I have ever been and she gained weight as well. For her I knew that things had to change as I do not want her to face the challenges that I have.

With all that taken into account I have started to seriously be tracking my caloric intake and be more aware of mindless eating as well as the types of foods we are eating. I am happy to say that I have lost 10 pounds so far and for this girl that is no small feat. I was in such a great mood today and I am looking forward to the continuation of health goals. I attribute this success largely to not eating processed food, fast food, and increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables in my diet. We also eat almost solely organic and all natural food and we are trying to avoid GMO’s as much as possible. All in all I am so happy with this accomplishment and to celebrate I ate a wonderful salad with yogurt dressing and a chicken, spinach and feta sausage to accompany it. It was such a yummy meal and I am proud that I have accomplished this weight loss despite the escalation of symptoms of my depression and anxiety. Woo Hoo this is a win for me, Peanut who was super happy and high-fived me and for God giving me the fortitude to work through my issues and bring me this small victory!! Here is to the next pounds melting off and me feeling better and better everyday!!

Inspired…7 Reasons To Smile Today

Standard

Living with ADHD inspired me today to think about why I am smiling today and hopefully I can hold the smile in my heart all day long and keep my outlook bright…

  1. I am forgiven and loved unconditionally by my Heavenly Father.
  2.  I ate a yummy filling breakfast that was healthy and good for me.
  3. I held my daughter in my arms for as long as I wanted to this morning.
  4. I fill out my employment paperwork today.
  5. I have great loving friends that listen even when I whine.
  6. I have helpful generous parents.
  7. Today I have a chance to do better than I did yesterday.
  8. ORGANIC DELICIOUS COFFEE!!!

What a great exercise to start my day to help me focus on the good things in my life and not the struggles. I continue to be blessed and inspired by my fellow bloggers here on Word Press and for that I am so very grateful. I also gain inspiration from the people in my life and for that I am beyond grateful that I am blessed to have the friends and family that I do.

Can you think of 7 Reasons To Smile today???

A found poem…

Standard

BORN INTO CLOUD

born into a cloud smothered into darkness

bringing rainfall in abundance

the deep fog keeps you from knowing who you are

lightning strikes your person

a lashing out in pain

the world is blinding in the dark cloud that covers

life hails in destruction

leaving no hope or sanity

until light shines through from heaven revealing your true colors

the rainbow God created you to be when there seemed to be no hope

and you are born again by the love and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ

whom brings forth truth in everlasting life

Amen

I love this so much! I found it on Full Of Roses Inspirationals you should really read the whole post it gave me goose bumps and brought tears to my eyes. I long to experience God again in the way described in this post. And I absolutely love the idea that the light of God shining through us produces a rainbow what a beautiful picture!! Rainbows of light emanating from us as we experience and share God!!! Thank you so much Full Of Roses Inspirationals for sharing your journey with the world.
