Some interesting knowledge to ponder.

Let me start by saying, Every woman has been perfectly created, the way they are. We were made for romance, discovery and adventure. We are irreplaceable. We are glorious, powerful and captivating!

Did you know Marilyn Monroe wore a size 14?

If Barbie was a real woman, she'd have to walk on all FOURS due to her proportions!

The average women weighs 144 pounds, and wears between a size 12 and 14.

One out of every 4 college-age women has an eating disorder.

The Models in the magazines are AIRBRUSHED. NOT PERFECT!!!

A psychological study in 1995 found that 3 minutes spent looking at a Fashion Magazine caused 70% of women to feel depressed, guilty and SHAMEFUL!

Models 20 years ago weighed 8% Less than the average Woman.

Today they weigh 23% less......

Beauty of a Woman
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows.
The beauty of a woman
With time, only grows..

The Images of Mother
4 YEARS OF AGE My Mommy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 YEARS OF AGE My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either!
16 YEARS OF AGE Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.
18 YEARS OF AGE That old woman? She's way out of date!
25 YEARS OF AGE Well, she might know a little bit about it.
35 YEARS OF AGE Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?
65 YEARS OF AGE Wish I could talk it over with Mom. . .

My prayer is that we will live freely knowing, we don't need to even attempt to live by one more set of standards we fail to meet or by things we ought to do. But, rather by who we already are, woman. Who's hearts matter.

This is all so true! I am amazed at the journey God has been taking me on to make me a woman of "beauty".
Even when I was little I remember thinking that when I grew up I wanted to be so peaceful that when others came to my house or spent time with me they felt at rest.
Only now am I learning what that means and how to get there...and reminders like these are certainly part of it!
Oh, I wish you and I could get together and do biblestudies or bookstudies together!

Many Blessings
