I have not made my blog public before. Honestly it’s not very old and I was only using it for reviews. I am not that confident that anyone really needs to or wants to hear what I have to say. But earlier this week, I heard Beth Moore say the exact same thing about herself! Can you believe that THE Beth Moore would say that? I have said for a number of years that this woman could scoop kitty litter and come up with a devotional that would make us teary, nod and agree we want to scoop litter too. She spoke of the journey through life to find your purpose. She listed all the things she has done BEFORE she found her purpose in life…teaching Bible lessons and ministering to women. I was stunned.
Finally. I love being a female. I love the complexity of our body, the fluctuations of our hormones. I love that we have boobs, buns, even our periods. I do confess that I occasionally struggle with my self image now that I have no uterus, no ovaries and my breasts have been built from wire and concrete. (If you don't believe me, I will let you cop a feel to see how hard implants really are.) I love that God created us with the capability of carrying life within us and giving life to a new human. I love that he built me with a sense of humor. I love how we feel and love. I love even the less loveable things about us. It beats being a male, though I am hard pressed to find a man who would agree. I love the way we think and process information. I love our hearts and emotions. I think women are the epitome of the Scripture...Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
