Being a Woman.

 Little Women.

 We are sensitive about everything. We are a very special kind of creation.  WE love to be loved. 


We love to have things to love & nurture. 
WE love when people notice 
our outfit.
our hair.
our house.
how clean our bathroom is.
(sigh*)
our smile.
our new curtains.
our painted toes.
& hands
our CLEAN car.
our new shoes.
our dress.
our new shade of lipstick.
every. thing. that is pretty.



 I think it's safe to say....
We love to be noticed.

 Even the smallest of women..... Which would be right here. ^  Love to take care of people & to feel ACCEPTED. We all want and feel the need to be accepted by one another. 

So why do we look down on one another?
With the need to feel accepted.....
comes another horrible
deathly
disgusting 
WORD



JEALOUSY.

A word that makes me more upset than anything in the FEMALE world.

 A word that many today CHOOSE to walk in & not just accept that THAT woman is skinnier than you,
prettier than you,
dare I say it-
FRIENDLIER than you....


My momma is a very wise woman.
She planted inside of me a Security that is immoveable.

& that my friends.
Is Jesus.



When that foundation is made on Jesus.
No ugly word like JEALOUSY can steal my JOY.


 I have beautiful woman around me. I have secure women around me. I have beautiful, single women around me. I have momma's x 4 around me. I have athletic women around me. I have married women around me. I have young women around me. I have divorced women around me.  I have Grandma's around me.  I have fashion-ista's around me. I am blessed with so many friends in different seasons. . . . 
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 
& 1 ANTHEM is in every season.
 The need of acceptance.

 Dear WOMEN,
Let's not tear each other down. We are all different styles, creations, sizes, colors, & each is so beautiful. When you see another woman-BUILD HER UP. LIFT HER UP. She may not be getting lifted up at home.....SO LIFT HER UP. If you like your dress that day and NO ONE has noticed----> COMPLIMENT SOMEONE ELSE ON THEIR DRESS!!!! Your words can be LIFE to us. BE SECURE in WHO you are placing your SECURITY IN. 


In every season. In every size. In every place. HE IS SOVEREIGN. We are all created & all have our own place of insecurity. (which I will be blogging about mine soon) 
 No more hiding behind your insecurities & pushing the eyes of women on SOMEONE ELSES by bringing them up. Use your words wisely. WE are women. Unite together & speak LOVE.

  5. I love this post. Love it so much.
    There's one thing that I always think when I see your posts, IG pics, tweets (what a silly internet language we have!); the thing I think is: She is magnetic. You're infectious with your love for people (women!) and life.
    I'm happy to be your friend (even if it is only online...)
    Good post, dearie.

  6. Such a great post! For me personally, it's hard to feel confident and secure in my own skin. I know I need to stop caring what others think of me (we literally just talked about this at church today) and just focus on what the Lord thinks of me. No more being jealous of other girls bodies, or comparing how "perfect" they are to myself. I know this post is older, but it is EXACTLY what I needed to read today. Thanks, B! :)
