Just be exactly who you are...

Yep. That is pretty much the best advice I could give. Just be who you were created to be! I look around sometimes at the pressures I feel are placed on women...are you a size 2? Do you have flawless skin? Are you a super-mom who's children are always perfect? Do you volunteer and are on every committee? Do you make a 4 course meal every night for your family? Are you always "put together?" Let's face it...this list could go ON and ON. We are faced with trying to be someone elses idea of perfect...when really the only person who I want to please is the Lord. And you know I think he could care less if I am wearing make-up and if the house is spotless. I for the most part do strive to make our life run smoothly, and I do want my kids to eat their veggies, and LORD knows I don't leave the house without make-up on. (Because that would just be cruel to the rest of mankind. You have not seen me without it. But that's just me.) It's always a good idea to take a step back and think about who you are living your life to please. I am learning to be content at this time in my life. To not be running around trying to be something or someone who I am NOT. Maybe I should write this card to ME! :)
I whipped this up with "Clothespin." So simple and easy. (And on a side-note this one is NOT gonna make it through the post office sorting machine! This is a hand-to-someone-card. LOL!)
Sorry to get up on my soapbox today...but boy...sometimes I feel so much pressure to be someone I wasn't intended to be. And it's just me going against God's plan for me. I just need to be exactly who I am...the rest are just details. Hope your week is off to a great start!
