My Response on this "Women's Day"...


So blessed by God, my Creator, to be a woman, completely and thoroughly. I am thankful for Biblical womanhood and godly femininity. I am happy to clearly present this blessing of womanhood to the world: Daughter of God, wife to one man, mother of 8--7 to raise, 1 with God, and homemaker. This is the work God has given my hands to do. As a woman of God, my Lord, my home, and those within are the priority. No time to call off to prove my worth. God has given me that already.
As the late, great Elisabeth Elliot once said, "This job has been given to me to do. Therefore, it is a gift. Therefore, it is a privilege. Therefore, it is an offering I may make to God. Therefore, it is to be done gladly, if it is done for Him. Here, not somewhere else, I may learn God’s way. In this job, not in some other, God looks for faithfulness.”
