Strong, Woman, I Am

I often make things appear easier than they really are.

The good: I am very optimistic. Nothing is ever impossible.

The not so good: People have high expectations for me.

The good: I have so many dreams and possibilities.

The not so good: I am frustrated that I can't do everything right now!

The good: I will try to make things work out for everyone else.

The not so good: I keep too much of what I feel inside.

Lord, let my words and actions honor You. You know my heart and my desires...

I am currently blanketing myself with the inspiring book Fight Like a Girl- a gift from my sweet friend Sheryl. Snatch up this book if you're in need of some good You Go Girl time...

It's Party Week... are you there?


  1. Wow, I just clicked over and I really like the description of that book! Maybe I'll have to see if I can find it at the library.

    Great post!

  2. I'll have to check into that book!

    I've hardly made a dent in the UBP... there was over 500 blogs listed last time I looked!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog party post.. It's going to take me this week and all next to even make a dent in visiting everyones site. I think I was link #700 WOW. BIG PARTY.. I'm going to play in your Bump photo also.. I'll go look for my photo get it posted and then add my name to the link.
    Every time i read a party blog I think of more i could have added about myself.. like when I read your still nurseing your 16 month old.. I could have added to mine that I'm still nurseing my 21 month old and we are still cosleeping with him also.
    This is fun.. but I have to go stop by more party blogs now..
    Nice meeting you

  4. One of my friends - who looks just like Lori - sounds a lot like you, where she makes life look so easy and seems so cheerfully competent that the poor woman is always SO busy. I'm kind of the opposite of that, sadly...

  5. We have A LOT in common. Although I'm not so good about hiding my emotions. Sometimes I'm not sure that is a good thing either!

  6. That book sounds really good! Next time I'm in my bookstore, I'll have to check it out.

  7. Things are never what they seem to be....a good lesson!

  8. Good post! The book sounds good I might need to check it out.

  9. Sounds good! I think I'll put that on my 'to read' list! I LOVE Psalm 37

  10. Hey, I wanted to tell you that the passage you shared deeply touched me. If you've read anything of what's going on in my life on my blog, you'd know what I am talking about. We are praying that we are chosen as the adoptive parents of a little one still in his mother's womb. Please pray with us!!

    Anyways, I have received that scripture verse 3 times this week - twice today!!!

    Thank you Lord!!

  11. The not so good: I keep too much of what I feel inside.


    I do, too. Sometimes, I know that it's not healthy.'s not easy to do the contrary.

  12. Thank you for being so transparent.

  13. Thanks for the book recommendation!


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
