Some random thoughts =0)

Several things have been on my mind lately. One thing I have thought a lot about is how exactly did women begin to believe the lie that they cant be fulfilled “just” being a mom. I am really confused when I sit with a group of women at church and they are spouting these same lies. I wonder what the room would say if I told them that I thought the best thing my daughters could do with their lives is to become Godly mothers and wives.Helpmates for worthy spouses.To teach,love,serve, and encourage in their own homes. I think some would smile and nod their heads in agreement. I worry that many more would look at me with confusion or pity or even disgust. I am not a perfect mother. I am not the epitome of humble housewife either. I am not perfect. But I am trying to live the life God would want of me. I am always grateful to hear from other women sharing this journey.I think that's one reason why I enjoy blogging so much. I can read about other women considering the same questions I am.Other women striving to become the person God created them to be. Its good to know I am not alone.

Even though I feel this way I know that God has made us all different, God loves us all and He would not want me to judge others. He would not want me to have the attitude of being “better” than someone else because of the different choices we have made. I’ll be honest here and admit that at times I do feel that way.I have felt that way. It has been something God has brought to my attention lately and it is shameful and wrong. That I would ever put someone down or look at myself as better because I made what I felt was “the right choice”. This is something I am working on. I am praying for Gods spirit to be in my heart when I think about and look at others. I would love and appreciate any scriptures that may help me or enlighten me in this area. I am thankful for God placing so many wonderful examples in my life too and I am trying to emulate their loving and kind attitudes. =0) Thanks for listening to my thoughts today.

I can imagine that scene at church too. Yikes! Talk about yet another way we are 'different' than the majority.

This is an excellent post. You are wise to see the lies that this world is trying to feed us. Being a wife and mother is noble.

May God bless you as you continue to live in His truth.
