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.
