POEM: Woman

precious

I was speechless when I read this. And, I got chills too. The Lord is good and a very wise God.

WOMAN.

When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day…

An angel came by and asked.” Why spend so much time on her?”

The lord answered. “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?”

She must function on all kinds of situations,
She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time,
Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart,
She must do all this with only two hands,”
She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day”.

THE ANGEL was impressed” Just two hands…..impossible!

And this is the standard model?”

The Angel came closer and touched the woman”
“But you have made her so soft, Lord”.
“She is soft”, said the Lord,
“But I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome”.

“Can she think?” The Angel asked…
The Lord answered. “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate”.

The Angel touched her cheeks….
“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her”
“She is not leaking…it is a tear” The Lord corrected the Angel…

“What’s it for?” Asked the Angel…..
The Lord said. “Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”…

This made a big impression on the Angel,
“Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything.
A woman is indeed marvellous”.

Lord said.”Indeed she is.
She has strength that amazes a man.
She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when she feels like screaming.
She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
She fights for what she believes in.

Her love is unconditional.
Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life”

The Angel asked: So she is a perfect being?
The lord replied: No. She has just one drawback
“She often forgets what she is worth”.

Send it to all the women u respect ….👍

And to all men who respect women 👍👍

W O M A N:
● changes her name.
● changes her home.
● leaves her family.
● moves in with you.
● builds a home with you.
● gets pregnant for you.
● pregnancy changes her body.
● she gets fat.
● almost gives up in the labour room due to the unbearable pain of child birth..
● even the kids she delivers bear your name..

Till the day she dies.. everything she does… cooking, cleaning your house, taking care of your parents, bringing up your children, earning, advising you, ensuring you can be relaxed, maintaining all family relations, everything that benefit you.. sometimes at the cost of her own health, hobbies and beauty.

So who is really doing whom a favour?

Dear men, appreciate the women in your lives always, because it is not easy to be a woman.

*Being a woman is priceless*

Happy women’s week!

Pass this to every woman in your contact to make her feel proud of herself.
Rock the world ladies!
A salute to ladies!

WOMAN MEANS:-
W – WONDERFUL MOTHER.
O – OUTSTANDING FRIEND.
M – MARVELLOUS DAUGHTER.
A – ADORABLE SISTER.
N – NICEST GIFT TO MEN FROM GOD.

I respect women.

You are Enough for Jesus; Jesus is Enough

Today, something so beautiful crossed my daily Instagram scroll. It was a post by Rachel Allene, with the following photo and caption:

“You are enough. Regardless of external opinions or comments. Regardless of how much work you accomplish today. It doesn’t matter how many clients you have. Or many friends like your photo. Just you is enough! It’s so hard to remember this in a world inundated with social media and curated images, but I’m here to remind and support you. Tag three friends who need to hear this today. Hugs!”

Ephesians 4:2-3 nudges us with the following passage: “With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Galatians 5:22-23 reminds us, “22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

People are fragile, and we need Jesus. We need Jesus to keep us on track, to validate us and to realize our worth in Him. The Internet boasts of things that we could never capably feel adequate enough to surmount to. “Curated” simply means that these things are professionally styled and arranged to achieve a certain look and reach certain audiences.

Instagram images are oftentimes gorgeous, seamless and “perfect” in every sense of the word. With the right filters, fonts, angles, lighting, dimensions. Can we ever truly live up to that? That stylized perfection? If we are not formally studying design, how can we? Exactly– we can’t. So why stress yourself out over it? Why drool over everything that you see? It only makes you want to have that, which can turn into coveting.

We are not to covet things and we are not to desire greatly to please our flesh by wanting the things of others. Everybody is facing something that we know nothing about. Perhaps they are struggling with this very thing of covetousness, want, jealousy. Perhaps they are looking outward instead of inward, out instead of up.

Let us be sovereign in how we treat one another and with constant meekness and gentleness. Some people struggle with this daily, myself included sometimes. But, when I reach those moments I come to my senses, put down the phone and realize that Jesus is enough. Jesus is enough for me.

Bridal Shower Bliss!

unmarried (minus me ;))

So, you won’t believe the time I had at my very first bridal shower. The girls at Church threw me one and I was so surprised. My face lit up with excitement, and I was slightly scared! Lol. There was a decorated chair at the front of the room with tissue paper and balloons hanging. I was like uh-oh, what on earth! I didn’t know what was going to happen, lol!

Nevertheless, the girls at the Church really looked out for me and hooked me up with a beautiful bridal shower. I got tonnnns of lingerie, and now I will not have to buy any for my wedding night. Just wow, very happy. We had a laughing good time. Such fun.

Thanks again to my church peeps! You guys are great! I say “bliss” because it’s almost my wedding day!! And, “bliss” because the girls in there were wild! I did not expect that from Church peeps, weeeheheheheheheeee! Whew, a few gag gifts that almost made me cry (laughing!). The girls in there were having a whooping good time. I was embarrassed, put on the spot, and even given a little married-folk wisdom. Wouldn’t trade it for the world.

The “Women Living Well” Blog

Wowie, HOW on earth have I come across this blog?– http://womenlivingwell.org/. This blogger has every ideology on parenting, homemaking, and being a godly wife that I could have ever imagined. Of course, the Lord led me to it from Twitter (I am following all of my favorite things on there). If I did not know any better, I would think that I was reading posts that I had written myself.

I mean, look at this one on modesty: http://womenlivingwell.org/2012/02/my-views-on-modesty-wlww-link-up-party/  How many Americans in this society can say that modesty is a lifestyle, or even a concept that they embrace? I actually just began wearing skirts last year when I met my fiance. It is a practice that some women in the Pentecostal church believe in. I recall one time the Lord telling me personally, “be not zealous over much.” So, this told me that it was not a requirement of Christians (wearing skirts), but instead a sacrifice, and a service unto the Lord in order to honor Him with your whole body.

I do feel like this blog will be a favorite of mine. I mean, just her video post titles “How to Communicate Your Needs to Your Husband,” “Learning to Submit,” and “The Importance of Intimacy in Marriage,” have me drawn in and wanting more. Enjoy!

Best in Christ,

Whitney
