— Louis L’Amour
I know it sounds cliche … but I spent most of my day watching Oprah. For a large portion of my life I’ve kind of laughed at her and have potentially taken all her hard work for granted. I find this kind of surprising because she is everything I stand for and encompass. She is a woman changing lives, giving people dreams and supporting those that are hurt. She is empowering woman and I think she is the cat’s pajama’s. Where have I been all this time?
My favourite Oprah cliche is her yelling in a deep voice “you get a new car, and you get a new car, and you get a new car”. It’s absolutely ridiculous. But I watched an episode of “Where are they now” and there was a story of a woman who sold the new car and started a make up business that had blossomed into a franchise that she sold to Macy’s. Talk about ripple effect.
I also stumbled across this wonderful blog, that is a more straight forward version of what my blog started off being. The young woman writing the blog writes about one thing a day that she is thankful or blessed to have in her life. It’s absolutely wonderful and I would encourage you all to read it. Here is the link: http://todaywasmeaningful.wordpress.com/page/4/
My hats off to you ladies, you are smart and kind and because of those two traits - that makes you beautiful.
I am on a journey to becoming re - self actualized. My Lord knows I need it and the the Lord knows I need him near. I am blessed today to be given this opportunity, this time, to find serenity and peace.
I want to be a more soulful Woman. I haven’t written on here in ages… but I think it is time that I started again.
For the last hour I have sat here listening to a woman whom is so strong. But she was strong within her weakness. She was beautiful. She was her own woman.
Recently I’ve tried to bring myself back to the basics. I devote every morning as soon as I wake up and every evening before I go to bed to my God. Even now, I know it is not enough but I will continue to try and be better. I read my devotional and I try to reflect, I try to absorb and I try to bring all the memories of love back into my heart. I try to bring Jesus, in His truest form, back into my heart. Writing the word ‘back’ in the last sentence really hurt … but if I am being truthful with myself, then that word should be there. There is a big difference between ‘going through the motions’ and actually ‘feeling’ something. Jesus’ love is something you should ‘feel’.
I just want to be more WOMAN. I’m in tears, but what else new. My heart aches right now. It probably shouldn’t, but it does. I live in fear, but I’m not sure if it is of God.
In life, you will do things much greater than you ever imagined. I can promise you that.
I’m a belle, a southern belle
a ‘bama belle, a dixie belle
I’ve got secrets I won’t tell
y’all don’t like it go to
hell..o soldier, what’s your pleasure?
I would try to fix you.
