Being a strong woman....

I saw this on a blog to which I subscribe and it's original title is "Poem about Girlfriends" but to me it is more about being strong in who you are through God.... He alone gives us the love that we require enabling us to love others...something I just learned n my Breaking Free (Beth Moore) Bible Study. As she said - how else could you love someone you can't stand except through Him?

Someone will always be prettier.
Someone will always be skinnier.
Someone will always be smarter.
Some of their houses will be bigger.
Some will drive a better car.
Their children will do better in school.
And their husband will fix more things around the house...
So let it go, and love you and your circumstances.
Think about it!
The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart.
And the most highly favored woman on your job may be unable to have children.
And the richest woman you know, (she's got the car, the house, the clothes) might be lonely.
And the word says, 'If I have not Love, I am nothing.'
So, again, love you.
Love who you are.

I would add at the end "as God loves you" and He does not make mistakes so never take for granted who you are and who you can be in Him.

The mate to Embrace :)

Today's sketch happened to be perfect to scrap the mates to embrace:

Feels good to be scrapping again!

I signed up to take the Double Dose class at Willow Traders being given by SusieQ and these were my first two "assignments."

This first page will be the second in a layout otherwise the title would make no sense...our other dogs liked to attack the water while my sweet Mason enjoyed it.

The second assignment probably looks the least like the sketch but I had to make my photos & paper fit. It's not my favorite but I didn't have a whole lot to work with in the way of embellishments to match this paper.

Maybe I'll find something later I can add but for now I'm just happy I finished them...time for sleep.
